Nokia's First Ever Tablet

 Nokia Lumia 2520 - Nokia's First Ever Tablet

Over at its Abu Dhabi Keynote , Nokia released its first slate dubbed Lumia 2520. The tablet runs on the Windows RT, has a 10.1″ Full HD display , a Snapdragon 800 chipset and comes with a variety of color options – black, blue, white and red. The price before subsidies will be $499.

You can get the Lumia 2520 slate with an add-on keyboard, dubbed Power Keyboard, with additional USB ports, battery and integrated kick-stand.

Nokia is very proud of the Gorilla Glass 2-covered display on the Lumia 2520 tablet, which has reflects just 6% of the external light and has a peak brightness of around 650 nits. There’s also a polarizer on board for better outdoor usability.

Thanks to the Snapdragon 800 chipset, the Lumia 2520 also features global LTE connectivity. The body has thinned edges in favor of better handling and weighs 615 g. The cameras are 2 MP on the front for video calling and a 6.7 MP with F/1.9 ZEISS optics on the back. Inside Nokia managed to squeeze in an 8,000 mAh battery and 32 GB of storage, which is sadly non-expandable.

There are microUSB 3.0 and HDMI ports on the tablet body with NFC and GPS coming on board too. There won’t be a Wi-Fi only variant of the slate, which seems logical as the Snapdragon 800 SoC has integrated LTE on all of its variants.
The Power Keyboard, which will cost and additional $150, folds over the display of the Lumia 2520 tablet and attaches to it via magnetic flap. It weighs 150 g, has two USB ports and a 15 Whr battery inside, which promises to add 5 hours of battery life.
