Nokia’s Lumia 2520 Tablet arrives at Verizon on November 21 for $399
Verizon Wireless has officially announced their plans to carry the all new Nokia Lumia 2520, a tablet that comes with some rather impressive hardware and is the first from the Finnish company to run Windows RT 8.1.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 hardware specs include goodies such as a 10.1 inch display with a full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset with an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB worth of RAM and a huge 8,000 mAh battery. There’s also a 6.7 megapixel rear camera that features Carl Zeiss optics and PureView technology. For storage, the tablet comes with 32GB of on-board memory and includes a MicroSD card slot that will support up to 32GB cards. Connectivity options of the Lumia 2520 include Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi and Verizon’s ultra-fast and reliable 4G LTE network.
As was already mentioned, the Nokia Lumia 2520 is a Windows RT 8.1 tablet, so you won’t be getting the full version of the Windows 8 operating system here. However, it does come with a bunch of software such as Microsoft Office 2013, Outlook RT and a few Windows 8 apps from Nokia including the company’s HERE maps, camera and Storyteller applications.
Verizon Wireless will start selling the Nokia Lumia 2520 tomorrow, November 21st and it will set you back $399 with a new two-year agreement or $499 if you’d like to go the contract-free route. Customers will be able to add the Lumia 2520 to their Share Everything account for $10 a month and the tablet is available in two different colors, Red or Black. Verizon retail stores will only be stocking the Black color, but if you order the Lumia 2520 from Verizon’s website, you’ll have the option of either color.
