Rumors that Nokia is releasing a Windows RT tablet refuse to die, and despite comments from CEO Stephen Elop that seemed to suggest that such a tablet, were the company to even produce one, would still be quite a long way off, some fans hold out hope that the tablet could still be just around the corner. The latest contribution to the rumor mill is stoking those fires a little, but we’re not quite sure it’s anything to be getting excited about.
Nokia Pakistan just had a launch event where it featured a picture of what appears to be a Windows 8 tablet. While there’s the chance that this could refer to the long-rumored Nokia tablet, we’ve got to wonder if this just isn’t some generic imagery, meant to reflect the Windows 8 device lineup as a whole. After all, there’s also a shot of a computer monitor there, and no one’s speculating that Nokia is about to start selling PCs.
On the other hand, we have seen some recent evidence that could suggest that Nokia’s having some problems with its regional offices going public with info that they probably shouldn’t, so you never do know.
