Nokia is entering the already crowded tablet space with its new Windows tablet the Nokia Lumia 2520.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 is already both a 4G LTE and WiFi tablet. It features a 10.1-inch screen made of Gorilla Glass 2 and just 8.9 mm thick.
It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and features a battery efficient design. It cuts down on power consumption when not needed, prolonging the battery life.
On full run of the OS, the Lumia 2520 can play video for 10 hours non-stop without charge. The battery also offers a quick start with its ultra-fast charging time. It can go from zero to 80 percent charged in an hour.
Accessory for the Nokia Lumia 2520 includes the Nokia Power Keyboard (with 2 USB ports), which also offers an extra battery of up to five hours extra use.
The tablet’s camera is a 6.7 megapixel snapper with ZEISS optics and an f1.9 aperture. It is supported by two new apps from Nokia–Storyteller and Video Director, which help in media capture and creation. It has also a secondary 2 megapixel camera for video call functionality.
The downside is it features a Windows RT 8.1 operating system, which limits the tablet to installs coming only from the online Windows apps store. It is however already installed with complete Microsoft Outlook and Office, as well as Maps.
Available in red, cyan, white and black colors, the Nokia Lumia 2520 will feature a suggested retail price of USD499, which if we convert into Philippine pesos will go for about P22,000. It will be initially available for sale in the US UK and Finland
