The tablet will be available in four colours - glossy white, red or matte black, cyan. To provide 5 additional hours of battery and two full size USB 2 ports, the Nokia Power Keyboard Case will be on sale in the coming weeks for £149.95, also at John Lewis.

Nokia Video Director is a video editing software, enabling you to get creative with styles to produce some exciting results. Dragons Adventure, which is a unique experience in partnership with DreamWorks Animation, will provide hours of entertainment. Working with HERE Maps and LiveSight, the bundled title will offer augmented reality gameplay and will transform any journey into a "How to Train Your Dragon" themed experience.
Conor Pierce, Nokia’s General Manager for the UK & Ireland, had the following to comment on the announcement:
"In a market of me-too products, the Nokia Lumia 2520 stands out from the crowd with its unique Lumia design, great hardware and exclusive software experiences. The Nokia Lumia 2520 is the first truly connected tablet and we look forward to working with John Lewis to bring this amazing connected experience to their customers."
