We’ve been hearing rumors of a Nokia tablet for several months now, but this latest slip up may have accidentally unveiled the device prior to its expected reveal during MWC later this month.
The leak occurred during a Pakistan Nokia event where the onstage screen briefly showed a tablet device that looked to be in the 7-inch range, next to a Nokia 620 and a monitor, all of which running their respective versions of Windows. If the Nokia tablet turns out to be a 7-inch tablet, it could potentially spark the interest for cheaper Windows tablets, which we know there is probably a space for seeing how smaller sized Android tablets and the iPad Mini have gained in popularity.
It was just a few weeks ago Nokia CEO Stephen Elop hinted at a Nokia tablet being developed by saying the company was studying the market in order to learn what the right way to participate would be, but it looks like with this recent leak, Nokia may know exactly what it wants to do with its tablet. A 7-inch Windows tablet would be a great way to enter the tablet market.
