An image of a Nokia Lumia tablet has cropped up on the screen at a Nokia event for the Nokia Lumia 620 in Pakistan.
The on-stage screen showed a Nokia Lumia tablet, if only briefly, alongside a Nokia Lumia 620 and a large desktop screen running Windows 8 OS.
Although the picture, snapped by Sense Applied, is a little blurred, the potential tablet can be seen sporting rounded corners, a thin bezel and the bright yellow finish seen on the recent Nokia Lumia 620, Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920 changeable covers.
Comparing the device to the size of 3.8-inch Nokia Lumia 620, the Nokia Lumia tablet could lie somewhere between the 7.9-inches of the iPad Mini and the 10-inch Google Nexus 10.
With Windows tablets priced to rival those from Apple, a smaller Windows 8 or Windows RT tablet from Nokia could enter the market at a lower price point. Currently, the Microsoft Surface RT is a similar price to the iPad 4, and the Microsoft Surface Pro is lining up against Apple MacBook Air prices.
Rumours of a Nokia Lumia tablet have been circulating for nearly a year, since Nokia’s design chief Marko Ahtisaari mentioned he was spending a third of his time developing tablets in an interview.
Nokia has not commented on the image or its speculated tablet development to date, but with the success of its Lumia smartphone range making it the top Windows smart phone maker worldwide, a Nokia Lumia tablet would seem a good move for the Finnish manufacturers.
With Barcelona-based Mobile World Congress 2013 just around the corner, the potential Nokia Lumia tablet could be set to make an official appearance at the end of this month.
