Nokia Z500 tablet gets Ovi Store confirmation?

Reports of a Nokia tablet back in June have reignited, with a listing for the Nokia Z500 being spotted in the company's Ovi Store.  Z500 was the tablet product name tipped earlier in the year by notorious insider Eldar Murtazin, with the device expected to run the MeeGo OS.

The Z500 can't be selected from Nokia's pictorial list of handsets, only by entering the direct URL.  However, this definitely appears to be a product in the company's catalog; entering a different address throws up an error message.  A similar trick leaked the Nokia X7 more recently.

Exact hardware details for the Nokia Z500 are unclear, but a 7 or 9 inch touchscreen has been suggested and Foxconn tipped as the OEM.  Previous rumors indicated Nokia was working on a "large screen" device with OpenGL ES 2.0 support for gaming.
