    Finnish phone maker and Microsoft BFF Nokia is said to be planning the release of a tablet by the end of the year. Nokia's tablet would run Windows 8 and is supposed to have a 10-inch touchscreen and a Qualcomm dual-core processor (Snapdragon S4 most likely).

    Rumored to arrive in Q4, the mobile device is claimed to be made Compal Electronics who'd deliver 200,000 units in the first production wave. Pricing info is not available at this point.

    Most likely it'll end up like Booklet 3G, too expensive and people will rather opt for iPad if they're looking for a premium tablet. My guess the Nokia tablet will be a WOA Lumia tablet aimed to compete against iPad directly rather than some sort of x86 tablet with keyboard docks and whatnot.
