Nokia news hasn't exactly been coming out of the woodwork lately, but the folks over at Endgadget have managed to score some photos of one of Nokia's newest tablets, named the RX-51. While information on this device is sketchy at best, an article from Gadgetsblog says,
"And this RX-51 Nokia cell phone gadgets product is an Internet tablet and last month issued a new SDK Maema and devices used in this Linux distribution to these and RX-51 Nokia cell phone gadgets is indicate some features of the future team just like example :

Bear in mind that this is all being translated from Indonesian, so I realize the English isn't the best. As mentioned on Endgadget, the photos does sport a 5 MP camera and a SIM card slot (care to speculate on the US carrier). This looks like a seriously nice device for Nokia fans out there.

Nokia makes some nice stuff!!
My first credit-card sized phone was a Nokia!
The Linux Operating System may justify the low RAM? (128MB)
It's DDR though. 128mb for that size device should be fine.
Yes as far as speed but I was more worried about capacity as opened apps, cache, system OS processes etc start to fill it up. Hands on should say a lot.
Nokia seems to have a different approach that achieves good speed even with slower processors using faster but lower capacity RAM. The N97 is also 128MB, hinting that Symbian and Maema 5 are very CPU and memory efficient OS's:
Last few weeks I've been looking into the Symbian OS (http://developer.symbian.org/) and I've found that an essential characteristic of the Symbian OS is that from that start it was designed for devices where the amount of memory and resources available was limited. So 128MB may be like 256MB as far as the % used... yet to confirm that, but I do hope.
