There have been plenty of vague rumors and leaks about a purported Windows tablet from Nokia.

According to a new report, the tablet from the Finnish company is going to be called Nokia Sirius, for starters.

The Nokia Sirius is expected to run the much maligned RT variant of Windows 8. As we’ve noted before, Windows RT is a watered down version of the full Windows 8 desktop experience, given that it runs on devices based on an ARM architecture, while legacy desktop apps need the x86 architecture to work.

The Verge claims that the Nokia Sirius will be thinner and lighter than the Apple iPad. A 6 MP back camera and a 2 MP front camera are expected as well. The 10.1 inch will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The Nokia Sirius is expected to be powered by the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and will have 2GB of RAM. The report goes on to claim that the Sirius could have up to 10 hours of battery life even with LTE switched on.

The Nokia Sirius tablet is expected to be launched on the 26th of September in an event in New York.
