Nokia N9 inspired Windows 8 Tablet: The Specs

Of course in the mobile space it isn’t just smartphones that receive concept designs although there are quite a few about, but now that the tablet has entered the mobile arena these too have become part of the concept design game, and we have one for your consideration today, a Nokia N9 inspired Windows 8 tablet.

According to the guys over at Concept-phones, the Nokia N9 and Sony Tablet S inspired Nokia Tab Windows 8 tablet has been designed by Cameron McKinnon, and takes things larger that the Apple iPad 2 with a massive 14.3-inch display.

The Nokia Tab slate runs Windows 8 of course and as such will feature Microsoft Kinect motion capture via its front facing camera along with a 12 megapixel rear facing camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash.

Other specs of the Nokia Tab concept tablet are 1GB of memory, WiFi or WiFi + 4G models, 64GB or 128GB HHD, SD card slot, SIM card slot, microUSB 2.0 ports, USB 3.0, running Windows 8 ARM edition and a 3.5mm jack.

Design wise the Nokia Tab has ergonomic curves that enable holding the device comfortably whether in portrait or landscape orientation and all crammed into a device that is just 12mm thick, and has a curved screen to make Windows 8 gestures seem more natural.

Of course the Nokia Tab Windows 8 tablet is simply a concept so will like most concept devices never make it to the real world, but no doubt Nokia will enter the tablet space sooner or later and probably with a Windows 8 slate as their chosen smartphone platform is now Windows Phone.

So if the Nokia Tab Windows 8 tablet did eventually make it onto the streets would it be a tablet you’d give serious consideration to?

    1 GB RAM seems small for a Windows computer, unless they *really* trim down the bloat. Camera looks good (Nokia certainly knows photography), and Kinect might prove interesting if people can work out how to gesture without dropping the tablet. Still not a Metro fan, though – too blocky for my taste.  *shrugs*
