Nokia Lumia 2520 officially official: Snapdragon 800-powered 10.1-inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet

Nokia Lumia 2520

The long-time rumored Nokia Lumia 2520 has been officially announced. Just as expected, it’s a 10.1-inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet, powered by Qualcomm’s fast Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip clocked at 2.2GHz. That screen supports full HD resolution, in case you wonder, while the rest of the specs include a 6.7-megapixel camera with ZEISS optics on the back, 2-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera, 8,000 mAh battery and 4G LTE connectivity support (in addition to Wi-Fi).

Available this fall 2013 in red, cyan, white and black – the Lumia 2520 owners will be able to pair it with the Nokia Power Keyboard, a wrap-around cover that includes a full keyboard and gesture trackpad, while also providing five hours of extra battery life.

Aside from the device itself, Nokia also prepared few app surprises. One of them is Dragons Adventure, which was built in partnership with DreamWorks Animation to “transform a family drive into an interactive gaming experience.” Inspired by “How to Train Your Dragon,” the game uses HERE Maps and LiveSight technology to transform actual landmarks along a drive into the fictional Isle of Berk.

Another app surprise is the Flipboard personal magazine, which will be available for the Nokia Lumia 2520 at sales start and for Lumia smartphones in the coming months.

Last but not the least, Nokia Video Director will allow users to easily edit their videos on Nokia’s tablet and turn them into short films in minutes…

Now, are you looking forward to get the Lumia 2520? If you do, get ready to pour out $499 for the tablet and another $149 for the Nokia Power Keyboard…
