The rumors indicate that the Sirius will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.15GHz. This internal horsepower is said to be coupled with a 1920 x 1080 IPS display and a battery, which should offer nothing less than 10 hours of usage. Sirius is also reported to weigh in at about 1.3 pounds and allegedly be 0.35 inches thick.

Moving on the Nokia tablet is expected to include a 6.7-megapixel camera, with Carl Zeiss optics and unique companion experiences from Nokia apps.

Earlier this year (in August), The Verge reported that the tablet would include a keyboard addition, which includes a battery for additional charge. It’s also thought that other accessories will be made available at the release. As for the pricing, the verge reported that Sirius would probably measure up to the iPad.

  • Nokia has for long been my love. But if Nokia was not to ‘tabletize’ itself then i were to go for a secret lover iPad. But now am eagerly waiting for the release.

    But again, as a customer ain’t happy if Nokia sold part of itself to Microsoft – i heard!

    • Hi Ben.

      why so Sirius?

      Nokia’s move does not necessarily mean that the brand will lose its oomph. If you look at it closely it was strategic, and let’s not forget Microsoft has the financial muscle to lift any, if not all of Nokia’s future designs/strategies.

      I totally agree, it’s kind of been a long time coming. Plus with Nokia’s new Godfather, Microsoft , I can’t help but wait.
