Nokia Lumia 2520


Capitalism encourages competition. Without competition there would be no innovation. Android tablets and iPads may be the cream of the crop for most users, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for one more. If Microsoft’s Surface is the Windows RT-powered productivity horse, then the Nokia Lumia 2520 is its more colorful, playful mate.

Almost spec for spec, the Lumia 2520 tablet matches Microsoft’s Surface 2. The tablet is constructed in the same manner as Nokia’s Lumia smartphones using high-quality dyed polycarbonate. The Lumia 2520 features a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution display, 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and 6.7-megapixel rear camera made by ZEISS.

A pair of stereo speakers and an 8000mAh battery round out this tablet as multimedia beast that’ll last up to 10 hours.

Thin, light and unapologetically plastic (in the nicest kind of way), the Lumia 2520 stands out in a sea of drab black and silver slates. An additional Power Keyboard that extends the battery life will also be available for $150.

The Lumia 2520 comes out in the next few months in black, cyan, red and white. A 4G LTE model will also be available on AT&T in the U.S.

Price: $499
