Nokia to Launch 10.1’’ Windows RT Tablet with Surface-Like Cover

Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia is reportedly gearing up for the launch of a 10.1-inch tablet PC that will rival Microsoft’s own Surface slate.

In fact, the company is said to plan packing the device with a cover similar to the one Microsoft used for Surface, and to include HDMI and USB ports on it. The cover will include not only a keyboard, two USB ports and a kickstand for the tablet, but also a battery that will further extend the usage time of the device.

Also featuring cellular connectivity inside, the device is expected to make an official debut at AT&T in the United States, The Verge reports. Nokia’s Windows RT tablet PC is expected to boast a 10-hour capacity. Apparently, the handset vendor is planning to manufacture only a small number of this device, but is also looking at the launch of a Windows 8-based slate at a later date.

RIM BlackBerry L-, Z- and N-Series Devices Get Photographed Together

What would reportedly become the first BlackBerry 10 smartphones from Canadian mobile maker Research In Motion have emerged in a group photo, offering us a glimpse at what the company has in store for its users for the next year.

The handsets can be seen in the photo above (via crackberry), and appear to be accompanied by a device than might prove to be none other than BlackBerry Dev Alpha C phone that RIM has announced a few months ago. The L-Series smartphone, which can be seen in the middle, is said to land on shelves as BlackBerry Z10, and will sport a full-touch display.

As for the N-Series phone, it has emerged in another photo as well today (via CNBeta), one that shows its front entirely, and which can be seen embedded below. Rumor has it that it will be released as BlackBerry X10.

BlackBerry X10 First Live Picture Leaks

While we know quite a lot about the upcoming BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, little is known about the X10. Part of the N-Series of BlackBerry 10 devices, the X10 will be officially unveiled in a bit more than a month, on January 30, 2013.

The folks at NerdBerry have just leaked what appears to be the first live picture of the BlackBerry N10 smartphone. Sadly, just one image of the device is available for the moment and it only shows the back of the device. For the time being, details on the BlackBerry X10 specs sheet has been rather scarce, though the Z10 has had its share of leaks.

The only thing we know for sure is the fact that the X10 will ship with a full QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen display. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
