Nokia reportedly working on an 8-inch Windows RT tablet codenamed ‘Illusionist’

Nokia Lumia 2520

With the recent announcement of the Nokia Lumia 2520 in the past, all eyes are now focused on what’s to come. According to the @evleaks Twitter account, Nokia is currently working on an 8-inch Windows RT tablet which will inevitably rival the Surface Mini, which is set to launch early next year.

The 8-inch Windows RT tablet from Nokia is codenamed Illusionist, which is rather cool if you ask us. We don’t know anything else about the tablet, but it’s obvious that the Nokia Illusionist will borrow some design elements from past Lumia products. It could just be a smaller replica of the 2520.

The Nokia Illusionist will be Nokia’s second Windows RT tablet, after the recently announced Nokia Lumia 2520. The 2520 is a 10.1 inch, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 tablet, so if the Illusionist is set to be the 2520’s smaller brother, it’s possible that it could include similar specs.

Until we have an official announcement from Nokia, we can only regard this report as a rumor.
