Meet Nokia's first Windows tablet

Nokia's already gone all-in with the Windows Phone platform for its mobile handsets, but up until now, the company didn't have a Windows tablet in its portfolio. That changes today with the introduction of the Nokia Lumia 2520, a 10.1-inch slate running Windows RT 8.1 and powered by a 2.2GHZ quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

The well-rounded tablet also features a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, Gorilla Glass 2, microSD card slot, 2MP HD front-facing camera, 6.7MP rear-facing camera with auto focus and Zeiss optics, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, NFC support, micro USB 3.0 port, front facing speakers (hooray!), 4G LTE connectivity, and 8,000 mAh battery.

"It’s a complete package," product manager Paul Bischof said . "It takes everything you’ve got in your desktop or laptop and crams all that into a device that’s only 8.9mm thick and weighs a little over a pound."

The Nokia Lumia 2520 also comes with the "complete Microsoft Outlook and Office experience" pre-installed at no extra charge. Pricing for the tablet is $499 MSRP. It's available in red, cyan, white, and black color options.
