Nokia Lumia 2520 Overview
This entry was posted on Sunday, November 24, 2013.
Nokia's first ever tablet is out and it competes directly with Microsoft's own Surface 2. One unique thing about Lumia 2520 is that it doesn't come in WiFi only models and it joins the very small club of LTE enabled tablets. Lumia 2520 is available with both AT&T and Verizon at a price os $399, with a data plan.
Lumia 2520 scores pretty well in the looks department. It has the same familiar look and feel that we have come to like in Nokia Lumia series of Windows phones. Unlike Surface 2, Nokia has decided to make this tablet entirely out of plastic, which in turn has made the tablet more comfortable to hold. The glossy plastic finish has also made the tablet prone to collecting scratches and fingerprints pretty easily, which could be a big problem for some. The tablet weighs about 1.36 pounds, compared to iPad Air's 1 pound, which means it becomes fatiguing to hold it for a long time.
Luma 2520 has a rounded profile, which means it has no kickstand and full size USB ports. It has a 3.0 micro USB port, micro HDMI port and a micro SD card slot. The tablet has a 10 inch screen at an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The display is quite bright and crisp, although it has a lower pixel density (218 ppi) than other tablets in this category.
The tablet has a 2 MP front facing wide angle camera and a 6.7 MP rear camera. Nokia offers a $149 power keyboard cover which can be snapped onto the tablet and used without any further setup.
