8-inch Nokia tablet revealed in documents, likely named Lumia 2020

Rumours around Nokia’s tablet efforts have always suggested that alongside the, 10-inch Lumia 2520 we may also see a smaller version. And now we are finally starting to get solid evidence for this.

The news comes via an Indian import entry that notes the device under its internal name the RX-115. The entry slip mentions an 8.3-inch 1080p device that supports Nano-SIMs, and some rumors even suggest this Nokia tablet may also support styluses. You may remember that we originally saw this codename in an AdDuplex report from a few months ago so it’s very nice to see other confirmations of its existence.

This upcoming tablet, if it does indeed get launched, may bear the market name of Lumia 2020 and in terms of specs and design it’s expected to just be a smaller version of the already launched 2520.

Smaller tablets, in the 7 to 8 inch range, have seen increasing popularity in recent times and with Windows 8.1 that adds support for these form-factors, it was just a matter of time before more Windows OEMs began to create such devices.

Glad I didn't jump on the Dell deal. I want higher than 1280x800 so if they do a 1080p or even 1200p (16:10) in an 8" size I will buy it immediately.

I am definitely ready to buy a 8" mini-Tablet but, for me, W8.1Pro and a stylus with full handwriting support are a must.

I agree, it makes me want to stop my 2520 preorder ATM. But I'm pretty sure it's a mistake as I haven't seen any Windows RT tablets with proper digitizer support thus far.

If they can add stylus support and I guess by then WP8.1 will be out with new features then I will be very tempted by this. Will want a 12" Surface to go with it for work though, the Pro while tempting isn't quite big enough for dev work. I guess Nokia have no plans for a full Windows machine and are just sticking with RT.

In a serious note, while it is tempting to get one of Nokia tablet devices (including phablets), one could wonder what Microsoft and Nokia's Device and Services department will create once the merger is complete.

For now, Nokia is doing a great job of making consumer forget that such a undertaking is happening in the background by pumping devices out to consumers on a regular basis.

They shall make...the Lumiface!

That's what she said! ...

But man, those are good looking designs by Nokia. Wish I could purchase 2520 in my country

I was thinking about buying the 7inch Galaxy Tab for a relative. They are an iPhone user and thought maybe the Android would be to much of a learning curve.

For a 10" device, I'd rather have a Surface because of the keyboard & kickstand... but in the "mini" category, I'm much more open to devices from OEMs. The Nokias certainly are eye-catching...

Yeah, after using ipad mini i realized that 8" is perfect...

i recently got nexus 7 and i love it but it is just too close to my nexus 5, so i might return is and get an 8" tablet. this one looks good, if the price is not exorbitant.

I've had a Surface RT for a while now. I'd like to have an 8" too. But the RT with a stand and a keyboard easily turns into a work machine for me. I think, if you buy an 8", it is a unitasker which is a no-no in my book.

I'm really waiting for the day that the Surface Pro is the same weight/dimensions as my RT. Having a full blown computer in this form factor plus an amazing consumption device would be fantastic.

P.S. I'll never own a tablet w/o a kickstand built in... screw holding the thing all the time.

It should be 1920x1200 (16:10)for better portrait usage. 1080p (16:9) seems like it could be suboptimal. The other 8" tablets are 1280x800 (16:10).

I love all these pixel density nuts. My god what a spoiled society we are where 1080p would be suboptimal.

That post had nothing to do with pixel density.
