This is the first and perhaps the last Nokia tablet we’re ever going to see – or at least one with the Nokia name stamped on it.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a 10.1 inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet, putting it in direct competition with Microsoft’s Surface 2 device and making it the only other Windows RT tablet on the market.
It’s set to cost $499 and be available in Q4 coming in matte cyan or black and glossy red or white.

The ClearBlack, LCD display is full 1080p with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and uses Gorilla Glass 2 to protect it from damage.


It’s 4G capable, meaning you won’t have to scrounge for WiFi, has a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU inside and will have One USB 3.0 port, NFC and Bluetooth.

Nokia are touting the camera capabilities of the 2520 almost as if it was a Lumia phone, packing in a 6.7 megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a 2 megapixel wide-angled front facing camera.


Nokia Storyteller photo/HERE app will also come bundled with the tablet, as it will with the Lumia 1520. You’ll be ale to hold a lot of photos on the 2520 with 32GB internal storage and up to 32GB MicroSD card support.

There’s some interesting accessories too, notably the Nokia Power Keyboard that has a battery inside to compliment the 8,000 mAh battery inside the tablet itself. The Power Keyboard can charge the tablet from completely drained to 50 percent in just 40 minutes.
It also adds an additional two USB ports and will cost $150 on its own.


We’re waiting for Irish pricing and release dates and will update this post accordingly.

  • I know this is slightly off topic since this post relates specifically to Nokia’s windows RT tablet, but I really dont understand the point of Windows RT. If you’re trying to compete in a market already saturated with superior alternatives, why hit it with an inferior version of your product!? Who is going to buy what is effectively a watered down version of Windows that cant run anything pre windows 8 over a nexus/galaxy tab/ipad?? Full Windows 8 tablets running Intel core i* chips are already on the market at ipad comparable prices. Where is the logic in diverting resources away from what is the only thing they have that differentiates them in the market; full unrestricted computing on a tablet form factor with near universal periferal compatability!? Nokia especially should be maximising their oportunities to break this side of the market, so their decision to hold back here is doubly baffling!?!
