Nokia gets Sirius with rumoured Windows tablet

More details are emerging of the rumoured Nokia Windows tablet, codenamed Sirius.

Why so Sirius? More details are emerging of the rumoured Nokia Windows 8 tablet, codenamed Sirius.

The Nokia Sirius is tipped to be a 10.1-inch slate running Microsoft's latest Windows 8 software. It's expected to pack a quad-core Qualcomm 8974 processor with 2GB of RAM under a high definition 1080p screen.

WinSuperSite reports that the 4G Sirius slate, pictured above right, will be 0.35 inches thick and will weigh 1.3 pounds.

It's also reported to boast a 6.7-megapixel camera. The price is expected to be around $500 in the US, which works out at about three hundred quid -- that's not including VAT though.

Microsoft and Nokia have been in bed together for a while, but are taking the relationship to the next level with Microsoft buying Nokia's smart phone business for £4.6bn .

Next up for Nokia is the 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020 , which goes on sale on 25 September .

New versions of Microsoft's own Surface tablet are also reported to be in the works, including a new  Microsoft Surface Pro  and a purported smaller Surface Mini. Lenovo, Dell, Acer, Asus and Toshiba also have Windows 8 tablets in the pipeline.
