Want your tablet to run longer? Just strap in an extra battery.

According to the Times of India (TOI), Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) plans to do just that. One battery will have standard placement inside that case while the other will be located in the keyboard cover.

Designed similarly to Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT) Surface Windows RT, the keyboard will function as both a cover and kickstand. The battery located inside the piece will turn on when juice in the main battery is low.

The main battery in Nokia's tablet will run for about 10 hours and be able to recharge 50 percent within a short time frame.

Noka's tablet will have a 10.1-inch display, HDMI and USB ports, utilize an ARM Holdings (Nasdaq ARMH)-based chip set, and run Windows RT. AT&T (NYSE: T) is suggested to be the first carrier of the device, notes the TOI.

Nokia is likely to debut its tablet at Mobile World Congress in February. Shares are indicated lower Wednesday.
