Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet - Price, Specification and Release Date
Nokia's Lumia 2520 is a high-end 10.1 Windows RT tablet with 4G support.
It's been a very busy morning for Nokia who've unveiled 3 new devices at a press event taking place in Dubai. Firstly, they unveiled two new phablets - the Nokia Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320 - and then moved on to unveil the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 is the first tablet to be produced by Nokia and it comes pre-loaded with Windows RT - which is a version of the Windows 8 platform that was built specifically for mobile devices.
Nokia's tablet has a high-end specification and a 10.1 inch touch-screen display, which puts it in direct competition with Apple's iPad and the plethora of Android tablets already on the market, including Sony's Xperia Tablet Z and Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1.
Read on to find out everything you need to know about Nokia's Lumia 2520.
Nokia Lumia 2520 Specification
The Nokia Lumia 2520 has a 10.1 inch touch-screen display that runs at a resolution of 1920*1080 pixels. The display is made from Gorilla-Glass 2 for toughness, and features technology that reduces reflections, improves viewing angles and boosts brightness.
Nokia's tablet is also a pretty powerful device thanks to the inclusion of a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM. It also offers a pretty generous 32GB of on-board memory which can expanded by another 32GB using microSD cards.
Battery performance on Nokia's 4G Ready tablet is excellent thanks to the inclusion of an 8000 mAH battery - delivering up 10 hours video playback from a single charge. Recharging the battery is also "ultra-fast" with the Lumia 2520 going from zero battery to 80 per cent in under an hour.
A rear-facing 6.7 mega-pixel camera and a front-facing HD camera for video calling are present and correct. When it comes to connectivity the smartphone supports 3G, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth and even NFC. You also get a good choice when it comes to the colour of the tablet: with Black, White, Red and Cyan models available.
Nokia's Lumia 1520 is a great tablet for business users because it comes pre-loaded with Windows RT and Microsoft Office. You can improve its credentials further by purchasing Nokia's Power Keyboard (pictured above), which adds a full QWERTY keyboard, 2 USB ports and another five hours to the tablets battery life.
