8 inch Nokia Illusionist Windows RT tablet coming soon?
After the 10 inch Lumia 2520, announced last month and scheduled to be released before the end of the year, Nokia might introduce an 8 inch tablet.
According to EVleaks, the upcoming 8 inch device is the Nokia Illusionist. Naturally, this will run Windows RT, just like the Lumia 2520. Since “Illusionist” is just a codename, the tablet will have a different name when it launches – possibly Lumia 2xxx or something like that.
There is no word on when Nokia is planning to announce the Illusionist, and neither on what features the new tablet will bring. In any case, it’s pretty clear that Nokia wants to have a product that can compete with the likes of Apple’s iPad Mini, LG’s G Pad 8.3, or Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.
Another new device that might be introduced by Nokia soon is the Lumia 525. This should be an affordable smartphone (with a display of around 4 inches) running Windows Phone 8 GDR3. We’ll bring more detail as we get them.
