Verizon also getting the outdoor-friendly Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet

0. phoneArena posted on 22 Oct 2013, 04:56

We just spotted in the developer specs for the Lumia 2520 tablet that the slate is listed not only with an AT&T and global version, but Verizon will also have it in its portfolio. The listing reads: "RX-114, Verizon Wireless variant: LTE band 4 (1700/2100) & 13 (700), LTE Cat 4 (150 Mbps Downlink, 50 Mbps Uplink)". AT&T already announced it will carry the $499 tablet, but Verizon is staying mum on the matter for now...

yes win8 pro might be good but given the pricies of pro version almost double price then this one and some uncertanity at nokia side it might be first hit and trial strategy here just like windows phone were adored after nokia so its upto nokia AGAIN to hold the win RT tablet on high side after which >>PRO

People have to realize that ARMS CPU"S cannot run x86 desktop programs that are used in Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, windows 2000, and ECT. Microsoft's Windows 8 smart phones use ARMS CPU"S just like Apple ipads and Android tablets and smart phones do.
The mobile devices world uses ARMS CPU's. if Microsoft did not make any Windows Rt Tablets Apple Ipads and Android tablets would dominate the tablet world because at this time the Best experience you can get running X86 full Windows 8 or 8.1 or Windows 7, Vista
or Windows XP desktop programs require more expensive Intel i5 or i7 CPU's that make a true X86 Windows Tablet cost hundreds of dollars more to buy than an ARMS CPU tablet.
ATOM x86 CPU tablets can run full X*^ desktop programs but are slower and cannot run the high level Windows x86 Desktop programs very well especially if you are multitasking. That said the Windows RT 8.1 tablets are the best bang for the buck business ready tablets on the market because Microsoft Preloaded a special version of Microsoft Office Home/Student and MS "Outlook" onto Windows RT 8.1 tablets. new Apps are coming to this platform to fill in the lap of apps gap between The MS Windows rt tablets and the Apple ipads or Android tablets which have more touch screen apps.
