This morning we’ve received some confirmation from a trusted source about the Verizon Nokia Lumia 2520, the 10.1-inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet with the codename ‘Sirius’. The tablet will be Nokia’s first Windows RT 8.1 tablet, though certainly not the last as AT&T and others are expected to get the device too.
Pricing is set for $499, which matches Paul Thurrott’s earlier reporting, and it should go on sale to Verizon customers on November 17th (possibly the 18th). Colors options available to customers include “black and red” though it’s not clear if those are separate options or just one. It will feature 32 GB of internal storage with expandable memory.

It should be obvious that since Verizon will be selling this device, it will feature an LTE radio for their 4G network. While the Microsoft Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 will be an exciting Windows 8 addition, neither device will have LTE, not at least until 2014.
The Lumia 2520, according to Paul Thurrott and Tom Warren from the Verge, will feature a quad-core Qualcomm 8974 (ARM) chipset with a 10.1-screen 1920 x 1080 IPS display. It will also feature some unique and exclusive software from Nokia, including ‘StoryTeller’. The Lumia 2520 has also recently cleared the FCC, paving the way for next month’s release.

Finally, we can expect a 6.7 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. The device will come in at a very nimble 1.3 pounds. The display will be geared towards outdoor readability, which sounds like Nokia’s ClearBlack polarizer technology and the ability to increase brightness significantly when needed.
The Verizon version (and presumably the AT&T one as well) will be sold through the Microsoft Store. Our earlier reporting suggested an “early November” release for AT&T’s version, though we don’t have further details on an exact date at this time.
Nokia is expected to unveil the Lumia 2520 in less than two weeks at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi. We’ll be in full force on the floor of the event for all-day live coverage.
