You'll find a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU under the hood, with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is on board with 32GB of native storage. The 6.7MP snapper on back has an aperture of f/1.9, which means you should be able to take great pictures, even under low-light conditions. That could be why there is no flash on the device. A massive 8000mAh battery keeps the wheels turning.
Of course, the Nokia Lumia 2520 has a Power Keyboard available in black for $149.99. According to Nokia, the accessory will increase your typing speed by 50%. It also doubles as a case that protects the tablet from drops. And it even has a 2027mAh battery embedded to increase the battery life of the tablet.by half. There is also a touchpad on the Keyboard that helps you navigate your way around the screen.
If you're looking for a new tablet and would love to save $100 (which you can use to help fund a purchase of the Power Keyboard), check out the online Microsoft Store by clicking on the sourcelink below.

If this LTE tablet could work as a phone for calls and text, it would be more interesting.

this is a Microsoft Product now since it bought some of Nokia's Mobiles assets.This tablet is still a great buy because it comes pre loaded with MS Office Home and Student You can buy MS "Outlook" for it to make it a good Business or Student tablet. it also has LTE like a cell phone so you can access the Internet if no WIFI is available. if you do not mind the fact it runs Windows RT OS and will not run any Standard desktop Computer programs. it will do anything an Ipad or any Android tablet can do plus you get MS office free as a bonus. use an XBOX usb hand controller with it and you can have a good time playing games on it too just like the Surface 2 can do. If this was a verizon Version which is available I would buy one without hesitation. I am a verizon smart phone user.

I have had the tablet since December 2013. I really like it. I walked into it knowing it couldn't run full Windows programs which isn't a problem as the only program old school programs I use are Quicken and Tax software (Those can stay on the old desktop). However, I have found apps in the windows store for anything I want to do. Plus, the browser handles about anything I ask it to do. This was also the first LTE available tablet running windows 8/8.1. It's faster than the Surface or Surface 2. Not a big fan of the OTG socket as I have to carry a dongle to plug USB devices into it. However, that is seldom a need. I have a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse for those times I want to use them (writing documents or taking notes) but, they are seldom used as well. I find the on screen keyboard as good as any available for IOS or Android (the split thumb keyboard option is great). I went on a vacation with the family and I took this tablet with us. Great for mapping out where we were going and making hotel and event registrations while we were on the road driving around Texas. Yes, I could have done all that on my Smartphone but, it's easier on the tablet.
