Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet is a John Lewis exclusive

It launched back in October and just under two months on, the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet has been confirmed the for the UK.

In fact, it has been confirmed for just one retailer, John Lewis. The department store has the Lumia tablet as an exclusive both instore and online, so if you want one, you need to go there to get it. Not quite yet though, the 2520 isn't landing until 4 December. When it does, it will cost you £399 and be offered in various colours (not just the red pictured here).

When it does land on John Lewis' shelves, the Windows 8.1 tablet will come with a high definition 1080p, 10.1-inch screen with Gorilla Glass 2 for toughness, claimed to have 'less reflection' than other tablets in the marketplace, along with a wide-viewing angle.

You'll also find 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, 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.

Nokia is obviously talking it up: 'In a market of me-too products, the Nokia Lumia 2520 stands out from the crowd with its unique Lumia design, great hardware and exclusive software experiences,' said Conor Pierce, Nokia's general manager for the UK & Ireland. 'The Nokia Lumia 2520 is the first truly connected tablet and we look forward to working with John Lewis to bring this amazing connected experience to their customers.'

Can Nokia make a dent in a market getting more competitive by the week? Time will tell. It's a strong piece of kit on paper, but you wonder whether the UK public will buy into it with so many cheaper Android-based options and a couple of new tablets from Apple on the shelves this Christmas.
