It’s big time for the Nokia guys. We have been hearing rumors for a long time, but now it’s for real. Nokia has finally revealed the first look of Lumia 2520 – its first ever tablet which will only be sold via wireless carriers with an underlying idea to connect with 4G LTE networks. The USP of this device, as says the Nokia officials, is its “mobility”.
There is a reason why Nokia Lumia 2520 is generating an outstanding vibe; and the reason is simple enough. It is not exactly like the other tablets in market right now. It’s a well-known fact that Nokia has a close relationship with Microsoft, and this new tablet is one of the few to run Windows RT 8.1. The use if RT means that the tablet is super-slim and do not even need a different processor.
Moreover, it comes with a “unibody” which means the edges and the backside of the tablet are constructed with a single piece of polycarbonate. The unibody construction gives the tablet an extremely solid feel. Along with it is the quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and mind you, it is no slouch. It has a full HD In-plane Switching LCD screen which is bright and poppy, without too much amount of glare.
Next in line is the Power Keyboard. This keyboard is an optional accessory, but its sleek build and light weight make it a too tempting item to avoid. And once the keyboard folds over the tablet, anyone would recognize it as a chic notebook.
The design (as I pointed out earlier) is very sleek – weighing just 1.26 pounds. The battery run-time, which has been the biggest USP of Nokia devices from the very first day, doesn’t disappoint too. The 8000 mAh battery along with LTE connectivity will make it easier to get work done on it when the user is on the go!
The price, though not fixed yet, will be somewhat around $499. There has been no announcements on its release date; so expect us to let you know as soon as we get the word.
