While smartphones from Nokia may not create much hype among users with Apple and Samsung leading the market, the company has managed to get attention in the recent months because of its rumored Windows RT-powered tablet.

The Windows RT-powered tablet from Nokia is becoming more real with several reports with details about the device weighing in on the matter. According to one of the reports, sources familiar with Nokia’s plans indicate towards the tablet sporting a cellular radio.

The unnamed sources revealed the new details to The Verge stating that while the new tablet will have a 10.1-inch display, similar to Microsoft's Surface RT screen, it will indeed arrive with HDMI and USB ports, alongside cellular connectivity. It is also believed that AT&T will be one of the first service providers to stock it in the U.S.

It was also mentioned to The Verge that “the large majority of Nokia's focus with its tablet is on a battery-equipped cover.” Nokia is believed to release a special cover for the tablet “that envelops it like a book. Clicking into place, the cover provides a keyboard and a kickstand for the tablet.”

Nokia, per the report, has also designed a battery into the cover that can be used to power the tablet once it runs low on energy. There will be two USB ports on the case that will also provide additional connectivity.
It was also added that the main tablet will offer a 10-hour capacity with fast charging that will boost the battery capacity to 50 percent in no time.

“Our sources have revealed that the Finnish company is planning to build a small number of the tablets initially, with a view to potentially building a Windows 8 device later. Nokia's first tablet will run on an ARM chip with Microsoft's new Windows RT operating system,” The Verge report further added.

Nokia is currently refusing to say anything on the matter, and per a company spokesperson, the company will not "comment on market rumor or speculation."

This is a new development in the rumored Windows RT-powered Nokia tablet after it was reported last week that the device is heading for a MWC 2013 revelation in Barcelona between Feb. 25 and Feb. 28.
