If you reside in Russia, you may want to get your wallet ready. The 10.1-inch Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, running Windows RT, is now available for preorder. Costing 23990 rubles ($732), the Lumia 2520 is Nokia’s first foray into the world of Windows. While not full Windows 8.1, the tablet runs the more streamlined RT version on a Snapdragon 800 2.2 GHz CPU, 32 GB of storage and a gorgeous 1080P display.
Unfortunately, a date for the release is not given. So while you can give them your money for a red or black version (white is selectively available), you won’t exactly know when you’re getting it.
Speaking of money, that 23990 rubles price is extraordinarily high. It seems like many in the market will be waiting for the expected price to drop in the coming months before forking over such a huge chunk of money for what is a limited-usage device.
No word on a US release date, though unofficially we’re still expecting it on November 22nd.
Update: As it turns out, the 23990 price includes the accessory keyboard cover with an extra battery. That justifies the high price, at least slightly.
