Nokia is preparing to back Windows RT by launching a 10.1-inch tablet soon. Sources familiar with Nokia's plans have revealed to The Verge that the tablet, codenamed Sirius, will be launched shortly. While prototype pictures of the device leaked earlier this month, we understand that the final design more closely resembles Nokia's Lumia Windows Phone products.

Nice specifications, but Windows RT. Nobody wants Windows RT, and for good reason. I say this from experience: Windows RT is horrible. It offers nothing over iOS (let alone Android), Metro applications are side projects riddled with bugs, performance issues, and bad design, and the platform barely plays third fiddle compared to iOS and Android, so developers have little interest in it. On top of that, virtually everyone has abandoned Windows RT.

But, I'm pretty sure some people will tell us this tablet will turn Nokia around.

Wouldn't you retire after 30 years in senior leadership?

Why not hang around for eternity when win, lose or draw he still gets paid an obscene amount of money?

And leadership? Like Jobs and Gates, just no, these guys don't lead, they bark out vague, often impossible orders, no doubt full of crap from marketing, to the staff that then has to try and make something.

As CEO your job is that and meet the boys at the country club for an important meeting.
