Nokia. Windows 8. Tablet. Yeah, it’s happening. Nokia’s been rumored to have a tablet in the pipeline for years now, but has finally announced one here at Nokia World 2013 in Abu Dhabi. The Lumia 2520 is the first device from Nokia powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor. This might look like your typical tablet running Windows RT on paper, but it has the typical Nokia twist you find in their smartphones. Let’s take a look at some of the official specs before we get our hands-on with the device shortly.
The Lumia 2520 brings the best of Nokia’s experience building smartphones to tablets. The part you’ll be interacting with the most, the screen, is very impressive. It features a 10.1 full 1080p IPS display with high brightness and low reflectance. The brightness can be attributed to the fact that it goes up to 650 nits, while the low reflectance is because Nokia removed the layer of air between the glass and display. Do you know what’s crazy? The Lumia 2520 has a 180 degree viewing angle. Yeah, soak that in.
Here are the rest of the specs for Nokia’s first Windows 8 tablet.
- Windows RT 8.1
- 10.1” full 1080p HD AH-IPS, High Brightness with Low Reflectance, Gorilla Glass 2
- 6.7MP Auto Focus ZEISS optics, Secondary: 2MP HD wide-angle
- Video 1080p@60fps
- 4G LTE
- Nokia Music for unlimited streaming of ad-free music
- Free global HERE Maps
- Microsoft Office built-in
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (2.2GHz Quad Core)
- 8000 mAh (integrated)
- Red, White (glossy), Cyan, Black (matte)
As far as we can tell, this might be the first tablet to feature Zeiss optics on the camera.
