Nokia tablet gets FCC certification as RX-114
We first heard about a certain RX-114 codenamed Nokia tablet back in July with the occasion of some benchmark results, and we advised everyone to treat the info with caution, knowing that these results can be faked. Towards the end of August, the same model number Nokia tablet popped up in reports, again, this time alongside some other model numbers from the Finns (and said report accurately predicted Microsoft’s Surface 2 plans).
Now said Nokia RX-114 tablet got approved by the FCC and judging by the frequencies supported in its radio it could very well work with AT&T, T-Mobile, and/or Verizon. We’re talking band 2, 4, 5, 13 and 17 for LTE, as well as HSPA+ (and GSM, alongside EDGE) support. There’s no doubt that Nokia is preparing (or has already prepared) a tablet, the only question is when will it be released? Also, which carriers will pick it up, if any (we’ve already seen a slate made by the Finns allegedly pop up with Verizon branding). The October 22 event could be a good candidate, knowing that Nokia is expected to unleash a lot of devices.
