According to a reliable source close to Nokia, we can confirm that Nokia were working on an 8.3″ version of the 10.1″ Lumia 2520. However for reasons unknown this product has been cancelled. The 8.3″ RT tablet code-named illusionist was originally slated for a Q1 release/announcement said the source; before being cancelled by the executives. The specs for the device were said to be very similar to the Lumia 2520, with a Snapdragon 800 quad core processor, and similar camera module and possibly even screen resolution (but with an obviously higher pixel density due to the smaller screen).
At the current time we haven’t been able to find out why the “illusionist” was cancelled, but we are confident that the source is reliable. So it seems at the current time the Lumia 2520 might be Nokia’s only offering to the modern tablet industry…
