Nokia Lumia 2520 hitting US operator November 21

Nokia’s first ever tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520, will be released in the US on November 21.

The news was revealed by US network operator Verizon, which claimed that the 10.1-inch Windows 8 RT tablet would available on Thursday of this week. That’s one day ahead of the Lumia 2520’s availability on rival network AT&T.

It’s been revealed that the Nokia Lumia 2520 will initially be available for just $399.99 (around £248) on a new two year contract. It’ll cost $499.99 (£310) outright.

Nokia’s first crack at the tablet market will be a highly capable device. That 10.1-inch display will be a Full HD 1080p example, and it’ll be powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU.

It’s a similar set-up to the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520, which was announced at the same time during Nokia World 2013.

Elsewhere you get an 8,000mAh battery, a 6.7-megapixel rear camera, 32GB of internal storage (with the option of doubling that through a microSD slot), and the option of 4G LTE connectivity.

Nokia is also making its own Power Keyboard available for the 2520, which will add a physical keyboard, two USB ports, and extended battery life – not to mention wrap-around protection for the tablet when in transport.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 will run on Windows 8.1 RT, Microsoft’s cut-down version of its Windows 8.1 desktop OS.

Verizon plans to offer the Lumia 2520 in black in-store and black or red online. When it launches elsewhere, you can expect to find it available in white and cyan also.
