Nokia Lumia 2520 specs review: a savior, or the last of its kind?

0. phoneArena 22 Oct 2013, 10:43 posted on

As of late, Windows RT hasn't been getting much love – neither manufacturers, nor buyers seem to express any interest in Microsoft's operating system. Pretty much anyone but the Redmond tech giant has stopped producing Windows RT based hardware due to low demand figures, which does not bode well for the underdog mobile platform and its future. Yet Windows RT tablets aren't yet ready to go extinct, it seems. In fact, today we witnessed the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 2520 – a high-grade, 10.1-inch Windows RT slate that is to be marketed at the same price point where the iPad and those premium Android tablets stand...

by Nick T."Kudos to Nokia for equipping the Lumia 2520 with a beautiful, 10.1-inch IPS touchscreen. It has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, which can't beat the iPad's Retina display"
What!! No love for nexus 10...SMH (which has a better display than ipads)

As one who owns an iPad 4, a Nexus 10 and a (just purchased last weekend) Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), I can quite easily testify to the fact that the iPad 4 easily features the inferior display (in resolution, vibrancy, and aspect ratio for video/movie viewing) of the three... and It's Not Even Close.

Regardless... Given my outstanding experience with the Nokia 928, my expectations for the 2520 are pretty high - Looking forward to buying one as soon as it's released to find out.

Not to mention the great luminance value and low reflection, which in my humble opinion are far more important aspects for a device that aims mobility. Better visibility outside Mom's basement, you know. But who am I to argue with Apple's omniscient PR office and their tamed reviewers?

No WiFi only version makes me want to go Surface 2 but at almost the same price has me wondering. But it comes back to the expandability of the blades. Decisions, Decisions!

If anything Nokia should drop the lumina name and the non sense numbes that they give to these devices

why didn't nokia name it lumina instead of lumia? I think it sounds better.

Looks sweet! Hopefully it can get users to switch on board and adopt Windows RT.

I might have made this my very first tablet if it wasn't for the lack of apps. Because i have more than 50 (good) apps and games on my laptop and more than 130 apps and games on my phone so... Too bad. But good job from nokia nonetheless

nice specs but at this price I'd expect a full blown win 8 tab, not an RT.
