Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet is now official: Snapdragon 800 CPU and Windows RT at $499

Nokia Lumia 2520 TabletAfter numerous rumors surrounding a tablet, Nokia finally made it all clear. Today, at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi they announced their first Windows RT tablet, Lumia 2520.

As you can see in the picture, Lumia 2520 tablet looks awesome and it might be the first ever tablet that can take on the old iPad at least on design. Even if it looks like a bigger Lumia phone, it’s very stylish and thin.

The 10.1 inch display is Full HD IPS and Nokia claims it comes with high brightness and low reflectance, which will improve the outdoor and indoor readability.

Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet comes with a powerful processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (2.2GHz Quad Core), which is paired with 2 GB of RAM. On the back of the tablet there’s a 6.7 megapixel camera that has ZEISS optics with f1.9 aperture. This should produce good pictures even in low-light conditions. On the front there’s a 2 megapixels HD wide-angle camera.

Besides this, the Lumia 2520 tablet will come with 32 GB of storage, but will also support microSD card extension(up to 32 GB). As for connectivity features, Lumia 2520 will have them all: NFC, Glonass and A-GPS, WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n, microUSB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0 and the standard 3.5 mm audio jack connector.

The big surprise is that Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet will also feature a 4G LTE modem. Now, I know you’d probably think that all these nice features will drain the battery. Well, Nokia claims that Lumia 2520 tablet “is designed to selectively cut down power consumption when it’s not needed”. Normally, the 8000 mAh should last around 10-11 hours and the good news is that in just one hour you can charge it for 80 percent.

Besides Lumia 2520 tablet, Nokia also announced a Power Keyboard accessory which serves also as a case and as an extra battery. The Power Keyboard should give another 5 hours of extra battery life which means that Lumia 2520 tablet might last around 15 hours paired with this nice accessory. It will cost you an extra $150, but it’s well worth-ed.

Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet will be available soon in red, cyan, white and black and will cost just $499. It will be released first in the US, UK and Finland, with more countries to come soon.
