Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet made official

Well, we did know it was coming, but we didn't expect it to launch today. The Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, that is.

Whether this has enough to differentiate it from the competition (operating system aside) is something we'll find out in the coming months. But it's a good looking device, without doubt.

'It's a complete package,' claims product manager Paul Bischof boldly. 'It takes everything you’ve got in your desktop or laptop and crams all that into a device that’s only 8.9mm thick and weighs a little over a pound.'

Specifically, it's a tablet with a high definition 1080p, 10.1-inch screen, made using Gorilla Glass 2 for toughness and with 'less reflection' than other tablets in the marketplace, along with a wide-viewing angle.

Also here is a 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi connectivity, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor plus a battery capable playing video for ten hours non-stop without a charge. The battery also offers a quick start with its ultra-fast charging time - it can go from zero to 80 per-cent charged in an hour. on the back, there is a 6.7-megapixel camera with Zeiss optics and an f1.9 aperture, along with a secondary 2-megapixel camera on the front for video calls.

Windows RT 8.1 is the operating system and if you want to get productive, you can also pick up the Nokia Power Keyboard, which offers a keyboard with a touchpad and protection for your tablet at the same time. The Power Keyboard also contains an extra battery for up to five hours extra use, plus two USB ports. Microsoft Outlook and Office experience are preinstalled too, talking of work.

The tablet will be available in red, cyan, white and black, initially be available for sale in the US, UK and Finland at an estimated price of $499. We should get a UK price fairly soon.
