Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet to Arrive November 22 for AT&T

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 6 comments

The Windows RT 8.1 offering from Nokia will sell for $400 with a two-year contract at AT&T; $200 if you purchase it with a Lumia 925, 1020 or 1520. Verizon's deal is fairly similar, with a $400 price point and a two year contract -- but Verizon will be carrying the tablet in red in addition to the default black.

The tablet has specs similar to the Surface 2, with a few more bits of bundled software, and some decently beefy hardware -- 8000 mAh battery, a Snapdragon 800 and more. The Nokia version of the RT tablet has its own keyboard cover costing around $150, adding another 5 hours of battery life.

Outside of contract, the tablet will cost $450.

    not exactly overpriced for the specs, but it's WAY overpriced to sell well.

    Also, given that Microsoft more or less bought Nokia, we question why release this at all. this is like a big-brother Surface 2 tablet...

    Am I the only one around here who thinks that selling electronic devices via "mobile carriers" and fully depending on their whims is stupid and inferior to a normal "buy a device, buy any SIM you want" method the rest of the world uses?

    It might would have had a chance if it were price $399 with no contract. But $400 with a 2 year contract? ? ?

    That has to be a joke.

    I have used Windows RT for some time, and it actually works quite nicely. Real win8.1 tablet is better, but RT version are so much cheapers that there is room for them. The interface is snappy. The only problem is that java and flash support is still somewhat not guite ready, but it has gotten much better. The 2520 has really good specs for it price, so it is really interesting alternative. I have only used the old surface RT tablet, and this Nokia one is much much faster and allso has much better screen allso.

    Yeah that's one thing that sucks about being in the US is we don't have that option. But I've recently seen the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) pressuring cell phone providers to open up their networks: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/11/fcc-chairmans-phone-unlocking-fix-good-start-consumers-need-more
