Nokia executives may be playing coy when answering questions about whether or not the company will ever make a Windows tablet, but newly leaked photos reveal the Finnish smartphone maker has already abandoned one such device.
The Verge reported Tuesday that Nokia has not only built a Windows RT tablet originally planned to launch earlier this year, but the company has already scrapped it in favor of a full Windows 8 model.
According to sources close to the project, the 10-inch, Nokia-branded tablet that popped up on Windows Phone Central via Korean forum Naver this week is powered by a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, complete with MagSafe-style magnetic power connector, HDMI and USB ports as well as a SIM slot capable of 4G LTE data.
Apparently, the forum poster claims to have received the tablet as a gift "from someone who works at Nokia," but the company has reportedly since abandoned plans to support the ARM-powered Windows RT tablet in favor of a full Intel-based Windows 8 slate instead.
