It's old news. What they have up there is fine in my book. Note 10.1 is Android's flagship, iPad 4 is currently Apple's (8 more hours!) and now and 2520 is RT's.

Mid-range? I don't think the Snapdragon 800 is midrange. And if you're talking about the screen, I think that 2560 x 1600 on a 10" screen is a bit excessive and battery draining.

Once you use a high resolution screen, you'll never say that again.

I class the Snapdragon 800 as par and wont accept anything less. As for screen specs, ive been spoilt by my Nexus 10, hence why 218 PPI seems low to me

Hmmm, I have no idea which tablet I prefer:

Nokia: Great design, but (for the moment) crippled OS.
Apple: Pretty good design (albeit boring), again crippled OS.
Samsung: Poor design, great specs, great OS ruined by Samsung's laggy skin.

Sony: Great Design, Ok Specs, Great Build Quality, Poor Battery

HTC: Terrible, because they have yet to put out a tablet in the last 3 years.

Have you used the Note 10.1 in person? Touchwiz makes the experience 10x better than any other tablet. Give credit where credit is due.

if you read reviews (e.g. on androidpolice.com), they state that the Note 10.1 is indeed laggy.

"It runs on Windows 8.1 RT and comes at a price of $500" Is it really worth that much? :P

If only Nokia had loaded this with Windows 8.1 instead of RT, they would have struggled to keep up with the demand. RT will put off a lot of potential buyers.

i like this tablet .most of the stuff i do is Internet based any how i could use it as my fun and games Tablet and use it to make a serious doument if i want to because folks it comes preloaded with Microsoft Office home and student plus also comes with MS "outlook"
that's not a bad deal however the Surface 2 it's cousin is 50 dollars cheaper. folks if
Microsoft put an atom processor in the plastic case of the nokia 2520 so it could run windows 8.1 and sells it for 375 to 400 dollars Man OH Man Microsoft would make lots of cash selling them. but the Question is where is the Aluminum case Nokia windows 8.1 tablet that was mentioned being tested some months back. What's up Nokia!

I use to think windows RT didnt make sense either until I saw Rt as simple and easy to use Chromebook competitor with much more versatility.

I'm not invested in Windows at all but the price on the 2520 would really put it into consideration if I was in the market for a tablet.
