Nokia tablet clears FCC with Verizon and AT&T LTE

Nokia's much-rumored tablet has appeared at the FCC undergoing LTE testing, with the Finnish company almost completely squeezing out references to the form factor of what's expected to be a Windows RT based machine.

Nokia six product gush tipped for Oct 22: Sirius tablet, Lumia, dumbphones

Nokia will reveal six new products, including smartphones, entry-level devices, and its first Windows tablet at an October 22 event, insiders claim, a broad refresh of its line as it tries to claw back attention to devices rather than the Microsoft acquisition. The Abu Dhabi launch will consist of "several" Lumia Windows Phones, sources tell the WSJ, in addition to a number of S40-based handsets aimed at budget users; however, it's likely that the much-rumored "Sirius" tablet will be star of the show.

Dell drops Windows RT as XPS 10 tablet quietly discontinued

Dell drops Windows RT as XPS 10 tablet quietly discontinued

Dell has quietly axed its XPS 10 tablet, the Windows RT-based 10-inch slate that offered a keyboard dock and ARM processor architecture for longer battery life, though it's not certain whether it's a final shift for the company away from the ailing Windows 8 variant. Announced in August last year - in fact we first went hands-on all the way back at IFA 2012 - the XPS 10 promised up to 20 hours of runtime on a single charge thanks to its frugal Qualcomm chipset, but sales proved disappointing and Dell was left unimpressed by the spot Windows RT was carving in the market.

Surface 2 hands-on

Is there a place for Windows RT tablets in a competitive slate market dominated by iPads? Microsoft still believes there is, and the Surface 2 is the company's second attempt to convince everybody else that's the case. Still using the same, slick VaporMg metal construction and crisp-edged style, the Surface 2 is as handsome as ever, but now it has NVIDIA's Tegra 4 under the hood and the Full HD touchscreen from the Surface Pro 2 on top. Is that enough to clinch the deal? Read on for our first impressions.

Phablet focus to save Windows RT hints Microsoft

Microsoft's little-loved Windows RT OS could get a second wind by merging more closely with Windows Phone and targeting so-called "phablet" devices, according to hints from the company. The OS, which puts Windows 8 on ARM chips but which has been criticized for its confusing software support in comparison to the "full" x86 version of the platform, failed to challenge iOS and Android on tablets as Microsoft initially hoped, but according to comments at the company's Financial Analyst Meeting this week, the answer might be in the similarities Windows RT has with Windows Phone, rather than Windows 8.

Nokia tablet codename Sirius appears amongst next-wave leaks

A collection of Windows 8 and Windows RT tablets have appeared this week courtesy of well-known Windows insider Paul Thurrott, this including the long-awaited Nokia slate. The Nokia device code-named Sirius is said here to be coming with a body much like what we've seen in leaked photos, that being a reflection of what we've seen in Lumia devices - a perfect partner for the Nokia Lumia 920, it would seem.
