As PhoneArena spotted recently, the tablet has quietly been filed under the name of the Samsung SM-P905 at the FCC.
Precious few details are available in the way of specs although the tablet’s diagram points to a stylus port for Samsung’s acclaimed S-Pen. A purported benchmark test from AnTuTu would seem to indicate that the tablet has an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution display, the quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of storage and dual-facing cameras (8MP snapper on the rear, 2MP camera on the front).

Sources close to the Finnish handset maker told The Verge that the tablet is to be launched shortly and said that the design will be thinner and lighter (just under a pound) than Apple’s iPad.
The tablet is believed to have a colored body – as also suggested by recent purported images, dual cameras (6MP camera on the rear, 2MP shooter on the front), and a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution display that is geared up for outdoor reading.
Furthermore, the ‘Sirius’ tablet is said to have Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, optional LTE connectivity, connections for microSD, micro HDMI and micro USB, and a ten-hour [...]
Specifications from GFXBench seemingly reveal an Amazon tablet with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, Android 4.2.2 and the Qualcomm Adreno 330 graphics processor, which would likely mean that the device would run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 chipset.
These specs appear to correlate with a recent report from Boy Genius Report. Citing “multiple trusted sources”, the tech blog last month claimed that Amazon is to launch three new Kindle Fire tablets this fall, including an 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display and a Snapdragon 800 processor.
Sources familiar with the company’s plans told The Verge that the launch event is pencilled in for September 26 and say that the tablet, which is apparently codenamed ‘Vanquish’, will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor and Windows RT.
The slate will also apparently offer LTE support and be made available in the US through AT&T.
The specs and launch data look consistent when judged against recent reports from the Microsoft News blog and Nokiapoweruser.
This news comes as Chinese website Digiwo claims to have published the first pictures of the Nokia tablet. The purported images show a red 10.1-inch tablet with the Verizon, [...]
Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z was named Tablet of the Year by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), Europe’s largest editorial multimedia organization.
The $499, 10-inch Android tablet has a number of unique features: it’s water-resistant up to one meter (for 30 minutes), relatively lightweight at 494g, and almost up-to-date with the next-to-latest version of Android (4.2.2 Jelly Bean). That’s a set of features few Android tablets can beat, though it’s also worth nothing that while the Xperia Tablet Z offers capable performance, it’s powered by an aging Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.
Citing unnamed sources, the Microsoft News blog reports that the tablet will have a 10.1-inch Full HD resolution display, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (clocked at 2.1GHz) and will run Windows RT 8.1 – which will presumably launch alongside Windows 8.1 on October 18.
The tablet is also said to have 32GB of storage and a detachable battery-fitted keyboard dock which boasts connections for USB and micro HDMI. The report says that the dock would have some similarity to Microsoft’s Touch and Type covers, which is what we’ve heard previously from our sources.
The report concludes that the tablet will launch in September and claims that it [...]
The Z30 smartphone is rumored to have a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with (1,280 x 720 resolution) which is big enough to be considered one of the new generation of over-sized smartphone/kind-of-a-tablet devices that are often referred to as a phablet.
The Z30 will run the latest version of the BlackBerry OS (vers. 10.2), powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a large (2800 mAh) rechargeable battery inside.
TheStreet.com spotted some leaked photos and video on Vietnamese websites that claim to show the new Z30. A BlackBerry spokesperson said the company doesn't "comment on [...]

WPCentral received an anonymous tip on Thursday with the source claiming that Nokia is to hold a press event in New York City on September 26 and 27.
With the Finnish handset maker having recently introduced the high-end Lumia 1020 smartphone and mid-range Lumia 625 phablet, the article suggests that the firm could take the wraps off its first tablet.
If that were the case, the tablet would more than likely run Windows 8 rather than Windows RT.
The ARM-powered version of Windows 8 was widely-publicized to be running on a prototype Nokia tablet for some time, with a recent benchmark seemingly confirming the existence of a Nokia tablet with Windows RT and [...]
