One reason for this is the global LTE connectivity on the slate, which Didascalou says you won't find on the 80% of tablets manufactured since they come to the market as Wi-Fi only slabs. Also noted is the 11 hours of battery life on the tablet, the long standby time, and the slate's ability to work with Nokia Lumia handsets such as the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet.
Briefly discussed were some of the apps that work great on the tablet such as Nokia Cam, Nokia Music, HERE Maps and StoryTeller. The Nokia Lumia 2520 will be available from Verizon and AT&T sometime next month, priced at $499. It will carry a 10.1 inch LCD screen with resolution of 1920 x 1080, which results in a pixel density of 218ppi. A quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is under the hood with the Adreno 330 handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is inside with 32GB of native storage aboard. A 32GB capacity microSD slot can expand storage. The 6.7MP camera on back has an aperture of f/1.9 which should provide for great pictures in low-light conditions, and there is a 2MP front-facing camera. The huge 8000mAh battery keeps the lights on and Windows RT 8.1 is pre-installed.
