Nokia to announce Windows 8 tablet, Lumia phablet this year

As has been rumored for months now, a leaked roadmap claims Nokia will be launching a Windows tablet in September and then a Lumia phablet in November.
Says the tipster:

Nokia Tablet for AT&T will be announced in last week of September. He is unsure as it is Win8.1 or WinRT 8.1 tablet but says chances of Win8.1 is more as Nokia is not confident of WinRT success (Old news). Also, somehow contrary to what our sources indicated tipster says, the Phablet may see an announcement in November 1st week only. According to him dual-sim Lumias are scheduled to arrive in October and that From now till Decemeber 2013 every month Nokia will launch something new.

The tablet will be a welcome relief in the Windows 8 tablet market, which has seen flops across the board including Microsoft's own Surface tablet. Our recently reviewed Acer W3, was one of the worst tablets I've had the displeasure of using.

i want full microsoft office in this phablet (not the mobile version); you give me this nokia, and i am sold! oh yes, this can be the one solid and the greatest reason to buy a nokia AGAIN, and jump on to the phablet bandwagon.

NO? okie, will look for note III or ultra z or even iphone 6".
