In an interview with French newspaper, Les Echos, last year, Nokia's French Division general manager, Paul Amsellem, said that the world would be seeing a Windows 8 Nokia tablet as early as June 2012. More details have streamed in since then - namely, its release date has been allegedly pushed back to Q4 of this year.
The Windows 8 tablet is said to have a 10-inch form factor and would run on on Qualcomm's dual-core platform. Nokia's collaboration with Microsoft is said to give the company the extra muscle as they begin to venture into a tablet market dominated by Apple's iPads and saturated with Google Android devices. With a slow start, Microsoft and Nokia has plenty against them, given that the device is only set for a Q4 release and will be powered by a rather dated Qualcomm dual-core processor.
