Nokia Lumia Tablet Concept Runs Windows 8
Dubbed "Coffee Tab," it features similarities with Lumia smartphones
Nokia is the most important Microsoft partner when it comes to Windows Phone. In fact, it is so important that it previously hinted that it might extend the partnership to cover tablet PCs as well.No official info on a possible near device has emerged for the time being, but that does not prevent enthusiasts from imagining what a Nokia tablet PC might look like.
One of the latest such concepts puts Windows 8 on a Nokia Lumia tablet PC, one that comes from artist Tristan under the name of “Coffee Tab” (via MyNokiaBlog).
In Tristan’s imagination, the upcoming Nokia tablet PC would resemble a lot the currently available Nokia Lumia smartphones that are powered by Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
The specifications list of this device is in line with that belief, though it might not satisfy the cravings of the upcoming Windows 8 platform.
The Nokia Lumia “Coffee Tab” sports a 1.4GHz application processor inside, complemented by 512 MB of RAM, the same as the aforementioned Windows Phone devices did.
Moreover, the concept device packs a 9.7-inches AMOLED “ClearBlack” touchscreen display that can deliver a 1280 x 800-pixel resolution, and 16GB / 32GB / 64GB of internal storage.
The specs list of this concept tablet PC also includes an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for HD video recording, for sure, along with a 2MP camera on the front, which should provide video calling capabilities to its users.
The device will also include WiFi and 3G connectivity capabilities. If such a Windows 8 tablet PC was to be produced, it would also pack inside all the hardware that Microsoft requires it to include.
In the images attached to this article, you will also see the Windows 8-powered Nokia Lumia “Coffee Tab” next to a set of Nokia Purity in-earphones.
For the time being, Nokia has only Windows Phone devices available on shelves, and might not launch a tablet PC for a while. However, they did suggest that such a device was not out of the question, and we might see a tablet PC that resembles the “Coffee Tab” launched in the not too distant future. Keep an eye on this space for more on the matter.
