Nokia Lumia 2520 release date and price confirmed

The Nokia Lumia 2520 release date has been confirmed, with the company’s first tablet to land next Wednesday December 4.

Set to be offered exclusively through retailer John Lewis at launch, the Nokia Lumia 2520 makes the manufacturer’s first foray into the tablet market, with the 10.1-inch Windows RT offering to go head-to-head with the likes of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface 2.

“We’re very excited to announce the launch of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet exclusive to John Lewis,” Harry Boughton, a Junior Buyer for tablets and telecoms at the retailer stated. He added: “We have seen a continuing demand for tablets, selling one every 15 seconds, and we think the addition of this tablet to our range will appeal to customers looking to do more than surf the web.”

Building on the company’s increasingly popular line of Lumia branded Windows Phone smartphones, the new Nokia Lumia 2520 will set wannabe owners back £399.99 and will be made available in four colours – black, white, red and blue.

Powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the Nokia Lumia 2520 specs sheet will see the 10.2-inch, 1080p Full HD display bolstered by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Coming with a 6.7-megapixel rear-mounted camera, the Nokia Lumia 2520 features list is rounded off by a secondary, 2-megapixel snapper up front, an 8000mAh battery and 4G connectivity options.

For those after a Nokia Lumia 2520 with more business-orientated uses in mind, the company has also revealed that the Nokia Power Keyboard Case will be made available for an additional £149.95. Bringing an additional 5 hour battery life, the accompanying case also introduces a pair of USB 2.0 ports.
