Nokia reveal its new tablet Lumia 2520

Placed on 22 October 2013

Nokia has revealed its much-anticipated Windows RT tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520, a 10.1-inch slate pairing the distinctive and colorful design of the company’s Windows Phone range with LTE as standard and a suite of homegrown apps. Revealed today at Nokia’s Dubai event, the Lumia 2520 has a special Full HD display that runs at up to 650 Nits brightness for outdoor usability, and will come in at a competitive $499 pre-subsidies. Meanwhile, there’s a full bundle of apps and even a Power Keyboard accessory with QWERTY, an integrated battery, and USB ports..

Inside the polycarbonate plastic casing there’s Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor with LTE and WiFi. Nokia has opted not to make a WiFi-only version, arguing that the market for a connected tablet is more the niche it is aiming for. The 615g slate has tapered edges to make it feel more slimline in the hands, but still manages to accommodate an 8,000 mAh battery which Nokia claims should deliver 8-10 hours of runtime with LTE switched on.

There’s no wireless charging but Qualcomm’s fast-charging is supported; Nokia say says the Lumia 2520 should go from flat to 50-percent in around forty minutes, or to around 80-percent in an hour, ideal for last-minute recharges while you’re waiting at the gate for a flight. Connectivity includes microUSB 3.0 and an HDMI port on the tablet itself, while there’s NFC and GPS inside.
