A new image of a prototype with Nokia branding has been leaked recently suggesting Nokia working on a slate with Windows 8. Rumors are hovering around claiming that the company plans on using the full desktop version of Windows 8 to power its tablets and using Windows RT in an effort to keep the price of the tablet down as well.

Some images online clearly depict about Nokia branding and the device is just a prototype with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 2GB or RAM, an HDMI out port, a USB port, SIM slot, a 16-point multitouch screen and Windows RT. It also uses a similar magnetic power connector, like the one found on Microsoft’s Surface tablets.

With the release of two tablets in coming months, the company would likely substitute the processor with an ARM, Tegra 4 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset for faster performance and better battery life. Both 10.5-inch and 8.5-inch tablets would sport an aluminum case while there is no information about the actual screen size.

We can surely figure out what Nokia actually is planning for its tablet segment but have to be little surer to see it ourselves.
