Smaller Windows 8.1 tablet said to be preparing for an early 2014 release

Nokia rumoured to be preparing eight-inch Lumia ‘Illusionist’ tablet

Nokia might be preparing to launch an eight-inch Lumia tablet in early 2014.

Sources speaking to Evleaks and The Verge say that the smaller-size tablet, which will run on Windows RT 8.1 and a Qualcomm processor, has been codenamed ‘Illusionist’.

If true, the Illusionist’s size would put it in line with Apple’s iPad Mini, which has a 7.9-inch screen.

An early 2014 release would mean the eight-inch device would follow Nokia’s 10.1-inch Lumia 2520, expected for release before the end of 2013, and come out at around the same time as a rumoured 7.5-inch ‘Surface Mini’ from Nokia’s major partner Microsoft.
