The 10.1-inch Nokia Windows RT tablet, codenamed Sirius, is very close to its official unveiling. According to the latest rumors, the Sirius will be in the same price range as Apple's iPad, but it will also offer a few superior specs.

This is not the official features list, but it may be very close to the truth:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM/32 GB ROM, with microSD expansion slot also available
  • Display: 10.1-inch Full HD, 1,920X1,080 pixels resolution
  • Camera: 6 MP back, 2 MP front
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, micro HDMI and micro USB ports
  • Operating system: Windows RT

Various sources pointed out that the Sirius tablet is expected to be thinner and lighter than Apple's current iPad generation. With a design inspired by Nokia's Lumia Windows Phone handsets, this upcoming Nokia Windows RT tablet may also get a keyboard accessory that also acts as a battery pack.

The Nokia Sirius Windows RT tablet is rumored to be announced next month in New York, at an event scheduled for September 26.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
