Is This Nokia's First MID?

Over the weekend, a report citing an FCC filing referring to a new device from Nokia called the Nokia RX-51 showed up on Engadget.

Not really much to note from the images, other than the fact that it will have a five megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens.

Folks have been looking forward to a tablet or MID from Nokia for a while now and things really started to heat up when the company announced a partnership with Intel.  At the time, the two companies said the deal would see them collaborate on developing chips for mobile devices, however little detail was offered on any solid plans to release an MID, netbook or tablet.
