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.

Yet again, how well are they doing with this Windows only strategy? That they have added a tablet wont save them since other Windows mobile aren't selling no matter the specs or price.

you are backing a horse that hasn't just lost the race but is already in the parking lot of the glue factory.

Didn't we go over this? They're doing at least as well as the other non-Samsung Android OEMs. You're arguing in circles.
