Despite most rumors saying it's going to be phone only for Nokia, the bit about Nokia tablet in the wild on the news page has me wishing. Any remote chance they might show one? Could it look anything like a large 920? One article I read speculated it's type cover could have a battery.

I'm really crossing my fingers for a 7" Windows tablet. I don't care who the manufacturer is, as long as it's solid. Waiting for one of these to drop is all that's stopping me from grabbing a Nexus 7 tablet (Surfaces are out for me because I need a 7")

I think most manufacturers have written off WRT as DOA, while cramming a fully capable PC into a tablet form factor is just a tad beyond what we are currently capable of doing well. We're at a point were neither approach to Windows tablets makes sense, particularly because ULP Haswell is right around the corner. I wouldn't expect any Nokia W8 tablet until then.

Yeah i don't believe there will be Nokia RT tablet either. Windows 8 RT simply isn't ready and Surface RT, not to talk about other RT tablets are not selling.
It would be just stupid now to come out with essentially the same hardware used by all of the RT manufacturers. It seems like RT is still relying on the same set of screen resolution and SoC's.

Um, I love my surface Rt, to me its no worse than apple or Google but does offer some advantages over them for relatively the same price point. In essence it is what a tablet should be on one end, then there is the other end which is the full pc experience which I do agree has some things need to be worked on but is close which is why I can't personally knock a w8pro tablet. I think if anything the competition needs to step up more.

I'd probably buy one if Nokia released it, but it would have to be on AT&T's LTE.

It's in a category of it's own, and that requires a lot of consumer education which hardware manufacturers don't like paying for. Consumers who aren't sure what it is, or those that aren't comfortable treading off the trodden consumer IT path, likely won't buy it. That has been its problem.

and the battery life of the Surface RT is fantastic compared to the Pro. Just got back from a family vacation and after travelling all day, watching movies on the plane, surfing on wifi in the Airport when you finally get to the hotel and realize you still have 60+% of your battery life left at the end of the day its just fantastic. Until Pro can match that I'll stick with RT.
