Nokia tablet with 4G LTE approved by FCC

Nokia is widely expected to announce its first Windows tablet at an Oct. 22 event in Abu Dhabi, and now the FCC has released documents indicating that the device will come with 4G LTE support, making it one of the first Windows tablets to support the high-speed wireless connection.

In filings with the FCC, Nokia lists the device's model number as "RX-114," consistent with previously leaked information that said the tablet would include a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. While the filings don't reveal any processor information – or even confirm the operating system – the fact that it shares the same model number as previous leaks means it's likely the long-rumored Windows RT tablet recently revealed in a leaked press render.

The filings go to great lengths to not specifically refer to the device as a tablet, though the following diagrams showing the antenna confirm the form factor:

Nokia's filings don't reveal much about the tablet except for the fact that it will support LTE connections. As noted by Engadget, the wireless bands supported means the tablet could feasibly run on AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon's respective networks. 

The RX-114 is expected to take the name Lumia 2520 when it's officially announced.

I am really excited about all these new devices...but the problem is...the Surface keyboards are TOO amazing to pass up! I will only get a device that has one of those keyboards =/

Kinda "regret" MS coming out with their keyboard covers now =P

There is an issue which crops up of too much choice which creates confusion or a sense of losing out (pick x for some features or y for other features). This is where apple makes thing easy for people, and it works.

I personally like choice, i love being able to get what i want and i actually like the process of researching and comparing but the vast majority don't.

its kind of like having hundreds of movies on your self and not being able to decide what yo watch, then you bring up the channel guide on your tv and see a movie you've just skipped past on your shelf but decide to watch it, because its just there and half the decision is made for you.

Well, at least it has cellular capabilities... we have to wait till next year for a surface one -_-

I wonder if the reason we have to wait on the Surface LTE is because they are waiting for the buyout and Patent options from Nokia.

So there is the rumored Acer Iconia W4, this Nokia tabby, and the Surface 2... choices choices... good stuff though. I'll be going for the device that offers an LTE chip. That's what I'm looking for now.

The build quality will be (predictably) awful and in-line with all of Acer's products.

This is a reputation based that doesn't have its roots in the present, their build quality of late has been very good. They still make budget devices though which obviously aren't as well built as higher priced devices (cheaper materials etc.) but thats par for the course in the budget range. Their higher end are very well built.

Are you serious? Their W3 is complete junk all around so their build quality "as of late" is certainly not gotten better considering the W3 is fairly recent.

And the W3 is a budget device, did you only read a little bit of what I said or do have difficulty with comprehension? What I said wasn't cryptic, getting sick of the level of stupidity on this site, why cant people read and understand before replying?

Yes, I read your comment and I also read the article which talks about the next iteration of the W3. Furthermore, their other products have been complete garbage. Just because you're ok with cheap crap doesn't make it good. I understood what you wrote very well, thank you very much Mr. Douche. I just don't agree with it. Getting sick of the level of ignorance and stupidity on this site...

I wonder if it will come with MS Office and some kind of keyboard. I really like Nokia devices but MS has really held them back in Windows Phone. I somehow don't want to gamble with another Nokia device.

All Windows RT tablets come with Office. It's rumored there will be an optional keyboard with a built-in battery.

Would be cool if it was compatible with Surface accessories...

How did Microsoft hold them back? They held themselves back. They could have done anything, which they did... they made a tablet too lol. This thing will be awesome. Why don't you want to 'gamble' with another Nokia device? All of their devices (Lumia phones and accessories) have been wonderful so far.
