Nokia Illusionist, a Windows 8 RT tablet in the making

It has been a fortnight since Nokia announced its first Windows RT tablet, the Lumia 2520, there are already rumors about other tablets in the pipeline from the Finnish smartphone brand. But, leakster @evleaks has claimed that Nokia has another Windows RT tablet in the offing. Codenamed Illusionist, the tablet will sport an 8-inch display and will run on Windows RT.

An 8-inch tablet makes a lot of sense as the Lumia 2520 sports a bigger 10.1-inch display. This will not only offer a more portable form factor but would also give Nokia something to compete against Apple’s iPad mini and Google’s Nexus tablets. It would also become a more affordable tablet in Nokia’s product portfolio, helping it target markets for which the Lumia 2520 is too expensive.

There’s no word on the launch date but considering most announcements for this year are over, we would expect it to be unveiled at CES in January.
