High-end 8-incher reportedly in the works
It's Nokia Lumia rumour time again, with reports this weekend claiming the company is building an 8-inch tablet to be released in the first three months of 2014.
That would mean a high-end build, Windows 8.1 RT. a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB RAM.
The report says the device is known as "Illusionist" internally, with Digitimes 'sources' claiming Nokia will target the mid-to-high-end sector of the market, meaning no Nexus 7-style price point.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 marked the Finnish company's long-overdue entry into the tablet market, so it would be no surprise to see Nokia bust out another display size in the coming months.
In our recent hands-on review, the 2520 earned plaudits for its polycarbonate design, impressive 1080p display and an 11-hour battery life. We'll have a full review up shortly.
