    Wmpoweruser has pics of the red Nok RT Tab.....

    Let me reiterate I HATE THIS IDEA. I have no clue what Nok thinks they are going to do with this. If there plan is to ship 100k of these worldwide for the year, then yeah, they can probably do that.

    Cons:
    Its a 10.1 Tab (sweet spot is 8"-9" see Fire, Nexus, iPad Mini)
    Pricing, as it will surely be above $350,
    Its running RT (a dud thus far)
    Nok cash position: Nok is not in a position to blow money on this endeavor....

    As a shareholer that has been long since the mid 2's, I hate this idea. We are knocking on $5, and are going to blow it into the holiday season.

    The ONLY way I can approve this endeavor, is if MSFT is giving Nok "platform payments" for Windows RT devices. Under that scenario, I could, MAYBE be ok with this. But if that is the case, MSFT should just buy Nok for $6-$8 ps and let me be on my way.

    Thoughts?

      10'' NOKIA TABLET IS FOR THE ELEETE

      HAR, HAR

    • Cyan and the colors of the phone. Do they have red lumias. Maybe I forget I have so much going. I have only seen the same colors as the unmistakeable Lumia colors. Owe I forgot, the lumia colors until they made Asha quote unquote feature phones with the same color. I think Nokia only can get the same material. Do they have red phones now? The cyan probably would be liked by fan boys, it did not turn me on. I hope MSFT does not shut that site down because that make people who devoted their life to it screwed in the head. I will warn people that softy has hired markmonitor or something like that. I cannot think of the name. They are the biggest pricks in the world. They will threaten them with all this legal mumbo jumbo. I disagree 100% with Microsoft hiring Mark Monitor or whoever for copyright violation across the Entire web.

    • So now Nokia becomes a pc company with a tablet? Doesn't make sense. They are a telecommunication company, why over diversify? Just go with phablets for gawd sakes. Microsoft has destroyed the image of the RT Tablet by overpricing it from the get go, yet at 199 the tablet becomes a best seller and MS sells out?

      The last time i was so "sure" about something, i ran around insisting NOK wouldn't cut the div. Well, we know how that worked out.
      RT is a complete and utter waste. If the mole from microsoft pursues this one, then you can be sure about "the road ahead".
