Nokia Vega Tablet Prototype Shown on the Video
The Nokia brand is known primarily for smartphones, but tablets also came off the company’s pipelines. It became known that four vehicles with the working names Pine, Vega, illusionist and Mercury were being prepared for production at once.
All of them were eventually canceled and did not get to the store shelves. However, journalists from Proto Beta Test managed to get one of these devices, codenamed Nokia Vega (RX-107), and publish a series of videos telling about the characteristics of an unannounced gadget.
According to available information, the launch of Nokia Vega was scheduled for 2012. The novelty was supposed to be the ideological successor of the Lumia 2520 – the similarity with its predecessor in terms of design can be clearly seen with the naked eye.
The prototype shown on the video is equipped with a touchscreen display with a diagonal of 10.1 inches and a resolution of 1366×768 pixels.
The device weighs 800 grams with dimensions of 254 x 167.64 x 10.16 mm. The operating system uses Windows RT.
Unlike many similar solutions, the Nokia tablet received an NFC module, among other wireless interfaces. The LTE modem is responsible for wireless communication, compatible with all operator frequencies as of 2012.
For locking the screen in portrait or landscape orientation, there is a special physical switch at the end of the case.
Connection of external devices is carried out using the micro-USB jack; a headphone jack with a diameter of 3.5 mm is provided.
Whether HMD Global, the current owner of the Nokia brand, plans to revive the production of tablets is still unknown.
