Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet Landing Next Month: Price and Specs Also Revealed
Nokia's Lumia 2520 tablet will be unveiled next month and we know how much it'll cost.
At the end of last month we reported on rumours that Nokia were working on a new Windows RT tablet called the Nokia Sirius. We had expected it to be unveiled by now , but Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's mobile division has put everything on hold.
However, well-known and trusted mobile insider EVLeaks has now reported that Nokia's first tablet will be unveiled next month , alongside Nokia's first phablet - the Nokia Lumia 1520. Gone is the Nokia Sirius code-name , replaced by the far more sensible and manageable Nokia Lumia 2520 title.
Windows RT Tablet
It should come as no surprise, given Nokia's alliance with Microsoft, that the Nokia Lumia 2520 runs on the Windows RT platform. Windows RT is a version of Microsoft's Windows 8 platform that has been designed specifically for tablets, essentially a step closer to a fully-fledged Windows experience than Windows Phone 8.
The operating system will allow Lumia 2520 tablet owners to enjoy Microsoft's full range of software, including Microsoft Office and it'll even be compatible with a detectable keyboard/stand. Enough about the operating system, what about the tablets itself?
Nokia Lumia 2520 Specs
Nokia's Lumia 2520 is a 10.1 inch tablet running at a full HD resolution (1920*1080 pixels) that's powered by a quad-core 2.15 Ghz Snapdragon processor. It's rumoured to have 32GB of on-board memory and you'll also get a 6.7 mega-pixel front-facing camera , as well as a a 2 mega-pixel front-facing camera.
The design will be a very similar design to Nokia's Lumia smartphone range , and it'll be slimmer than Apple's iPad. The leaked pictures , posted above and below , are purporting to show the final design of Nokia's tablet. Presumably, it'll be available in a wide colour range to suit all needs, although we also expect some more muted colours for business users.
Nokia 2520 Price
Twitter user EVLeaks revealed that the 4G-LTE connected tablet will cost $499 in the US , which equates to around £310 in the UK - although we highly doubt we'll get it that cheap. Nokia's Lumia 2520 is looking like a decent alternative to Apple's iPad and should prove particularly popular with business users.
As soon as 3G get more news about the Nokia Lumia 2520 you'll be the first to know.
