Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet launching on AT&T November 22nd for $399
We knew the tablet was coming, we just didn't know when. Now AT&T has announced the official release date for the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet running Windows RT 8.1. The official word is that the tablet from Nokia will be released on Friday November 22nd, the same day as the Nokia Lumia 1520 and the Xbox One, meaning it will be an all-around Microsoft day.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet will only be available in black through AT&T (the red is exclusive to Verizon), and it will be selling for $399 with a two-year contract. That matches the "sale" pricing that we saw listed for Verizon, though Verizon hasn't officially announced the release date for the tablet. Interestingly, AT&T is also offering a bundle discount if you happen to also be in the market for a Lumia smartphone. If you buy a Nokia Lumia 925, 1020, or 1520 with a new two-year agreement, you can get the Lumia 2520 tablet for just $199.
The Lumia 2520 is of course the first tablet from Nokia, and features a 10.1-inch 1080p ClearBlack display, Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (plus microSD card slot), a 6.7MP camera with Carl Zeiss glass, and an 8000mAh battery. The impressive part of the battery is not just the 11 hour rating, but that it can charge to 80% in just one hour (due to the Snapdragon 800, we're sure).
