Nokia building Windows RT tablet with keyboard cover similar to Transformer According to multiple sources, Nokia is building a Windows RT tablet for release early next year that could rival the Microsoft Surface.
The new Nokia tablet will have a 10.1-inch screen, HDMI and USB ports, 4G LTE, and a cover/keyboard similar to the TouchCover accessory for the Surface.

Supposedly, the cover is Nokia's main focus with the tablet, with everything else being pretty standard. The new cover will "envelop" the tab "like a book," clicking into place and also working as a kickstand and an external battery. Additionally, the cover will have two USB ports, making it similar to Asus' Transformer keyboards.

The tablet will have 10 hours battery life even without the cover, and it is unclear how much bonus life the cover gives.

Sources expect the tablet to launch at the upcoming MWC in February.
