Would you buy this Nokia Windows tablet?

Last week, Nokias outgoing chairman spilled the beans on the companys plans for a range of tablets and "hybrid" devices. Although Nokia later attempted to distance itself from his comments, lets face it: the arrival of a Nokia tablet is a certainty - a question of when, not if.

Given Nokias increasingly close and interdependent relationship with Microsoft - not just through Windows Phone, but also with services and software development - it seems equally inevitable that the OS of choice for Nokias tablets will be Windows. But thats about all we really know about the companys plans for its new slates, and that got us thinking: what could the first Nokia tablet look like?

Something believable

While the web is littered with make-believe devices with wishlist specs that only a fanboy could dream of, we wanted to try to conceive of something a little more grounded in reality. Its just not terribly likely that Nokias first Windows tablet will have sixteen cores, a 3D 4K-resolution display, telepathic controls and a built-in holodeck - maybe next time around, but for a first-gen device, were pretty confident that those specs are a bit far-reaching.

In all likelihood, Nokias first Windows tablet isnt going to have the kind of OTT specs that would make a techie drool, but much like the Lumia range of Windows Phones, we imagine itll be stunning to look at, with very capable hardware that does everything you could need incredibly well.

So with those caveats established, where did our imagination take us? Well, weve dreamt up a 10.1" Windows RT tablet, called the Nokia Tiviti 9210. Take a look at the pics, scan through the spec sheet below them, and then answer the poll question: would you buy this Nokia tablet?
