Nokia Shows Off its First Windows Tablet
Nokia has shown off its first Windows based tablet -- the Lumia 2520 -- that comes with a 10.1 inch touchscreen and supports LTE connectivity.
The built in camera is a 6.7 megapixel model, with Zeiss optics. The processor is a Qualcomm 800 model.
The Lumia 2520 runs on Windows RT 8.1 and also features fast-charging capability - providing up to an 80% charge in one hour.
The tablet also comes with Microsoft Office and Outlook preinstalled.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 is expected to start shipping in Q4 2013 with an estimated price of USD499 before taxes or subsidies. Initial roll out is to begin broadly in the USA as well as the UK and Finland, with additional countries to follow shortly after.
The Lumia 2520 pairs with the Nokia Power Keyboard. Offering up to five extra hours of battery life and two built-in USB ports, the Nokia Power Keyboard makes battery life worries a thing of the past. A protective and wraparound cover, the Nokia Power Keyboard includes a fully functional keypad with gesture trackpad, so typing is said to feel as natural as on a laptop.
The Nokia Power Keyboard will be available alongside the Lumia 2520 at the recommended price of USD149.
