Microsoft ends production of Windows RT-based Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet

It's not exactly a shock, but a new report says that Microsoft has ended production of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet. The device is the last product made that used the ARM-based Windows RT as its operating system.

Nokia launched the 10.1 inch Lumia 2520 in November 2013, several months before Microsoft officially acquired the company's devices and services division. The report on the device's production end was reported by the Dutch-based site, citing an unnamed Microsoft spokesperson.

While the Lumia 2520 may have ended production, Verizon Wireless apparently still has some in stock and is currently selling it for $499 with a two year contract or $599 without a contract on its site. In January, Microsoft confirmed that it had ended production of its last Windows RT-tablet, the Surface 2. Both the original Surface and Surface 2 are supposed to get a software update that will give the tablets some features that Microsoft plans to offer with Windows 10, but neither tablet will get the full version of the OS.
