The leaker Twitter account evleaks has posted this morning that the upcoming Sirius Tablet will be dubbed the Lumia 2520.

There has been a lot of debate about what Nokia would call their tablet line, with some thinking a new designation would be used instead of Lumia. It seems an odd choice to merge tablets and smartphones into one product line, but then again Microsoft has hinted and many analysts believe that Microsoft will combine RT and Windows Phone in the future. Perhaps this is the first shot of that planned mixing?

We should also remind everyone that Microsoft will own the Lumia brand, so perhaps this apparent last minute decision was made in conjunction with their future owners.

The numbering is also seemingly arbitrary, starting with ‘2520’ though it seems to parallel the Lumia 1520, which is due to be announced at the same time.

The Lumia 2520 is expected to be announced at the October 22nd event by Nokia with a launch on AT&T in early November.

According to the Verge and WinSuperSite, the tablet will feature a 2.15 GHz Quad-core Qualcomm 8974 (ARM) processor and have a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display. It will weigh in a 1.3 pounds, have LTE and a ZEISS 6.7 MP camera. Priced at $499 the tablet will run Windows 8.1 RT.

If accurate, what do you folks think? Will it confuse or keep people focused on the Lumia brand?
