Nokia Lumia 2520 user guide leaked; shows off parts, technology and more

Nokia World 2013 has come to end and we're all traversing home, but that doesn't mean there's no more news and everything has simply died down. Today we'll be looking at the Lumia 2520, Nokia's first Windows tablet powering Windows RT 8.1. We've managed to get our hands on a draft of the official user guide, which is a slab of gold should you be looking the tablet up when released.

Aside from our hands-on footage and the official annoucnement, what's new in this guide? Any juicy details? There are some interesting sections to look at, but overall we already know what's included in the tablet itself, be it specifications or features. There's the interesting slide illustrating each key and part of the tablet:

As we've previously covered, you're rocking NFC, HDMI, USB 3.0 and SIM support for up-to LTE. The rest of the guide essentially walks you through how to more effectively manage battery life, as well as using the new Windows 8 UI. there's also going to be the option to add your Nokia Account to the tablet, synchronising Nokia's services, including music, navigation and more.

It's a really neat guide, especially if you're new to the Windows 8 experience.

We published the specifications of this Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet alongside the new Surface 2 from Microsoft, as well as Apple's iPad Air. To see which tablet comes out on top when it comes to hardware power and functionality, be sure to check out the comparison chart. We'll keep you all in the loop should we learn of more operators and retailers stocking the Nokia tablet.
