Nokia could be lining up to launch a new 18-inch tablet at the upcoming Mobile World Congress event.
The rumored device is set to feature a 4K resolution on an 18-inch display, all powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM.
Clearly aimed at a static office tablet, or perhaps drawing device, the 18-inch tablet doesn’t exactly scream portable. The size seems strangely large for an Android tablet that currently isn’t known for having a wide variety of tablet optimized apps. In fact, most apps are just blown up phone apps.
The mystery Nokia tablet is said to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat and is said to launch at Mobile World Congress [...]

The bottom line
Top notch build quality
Familiar, uninspired design
Poor camera quality
Speaker setup is dual mono, not stereo
With its fantastic build quality, and hardware that allows for a consistent, smooth performance, the Nokia N1 tablet is certainly a great addition to the tablet space, with the only real hole being the lack of Google apps and services in its current iteration that is intended for the Chinese market.

But in the wake of Microsoft’s purchase of Nokia and perhaps other considerations, Delta has reportedly decided to go with Microsoft Surface 2 tablets (due out next month) instead.
The rumored Sirius tablet has never been officially acknowledged by Nokia and its expected release is not assured.
"In less than two years, Delta cockpits will be paperless as we roll-out the Microsoft Surface 2 tablet running Windows 8.1 RT as our company-issued device," the airline told its employees recently, according to a report yesterday by WindowsITPro.
"The 757/767 fleet will be the first to make the transition with the 777, 747 and MD88 as fast followers. [...]
“Nokia Sirius = Lumia 2520,” wrote Twitter tipster evleaks on Saturday, referring to the firm’s much-rumored tablet project.
According to The Verge and WinSuperSite, the tablet features a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display, a 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm 8974 ARM processor and will run Windows 8.1 RT. The model will apparently sell for around $499.
Nokia is expected to announce the tablet, alongside the widely-publicized Lumia 1520 phablet, at an event in New York on October 22.
After months of rumors, leaked benchmarks and purported images, the 10-inch ‘Sirius’ tablet looks likely to launch later this year and could even debut at a mysterious October 22 event which Nokia has been talking about on Twitter.
The company posted an image of two men skiing alongside the words “save the date: 22 October” on Tuesday, and reporters have since speculated that the event could see the debut of the 10-inch ‘Sirius’ tablet and Nokia’s other secret product – a 6-inch Lumia 1520 phablet.
Nokia’s first tablet was supposedly meant to debut in September but it appears that Microsoft’s incoming Surface 2 [...]
Elop left Nokia to re-join Microsoft as Executive VP of Devices and Services following Microsoft’s deal to buy the handset business for $7.2 billion.
The former Nokia chief executive remains the bookies’ favorite to replace Steve Ballmer, who retires in 12 months, with Ballmer himself doing little to pour scorn on the idea in an interview with The Seattle Times.
“Stephen will go from an external [candidate] to internal. The board will continue to [look at] all appropriate candidates through that process,” said Ballmer, who made similar comments to The Verge.
Elop is now in his second stint at Redmond having been in charge [...]
