Tablets are a positively growing market, where it has also managed to send the netbook market into oblivion along the way. While Android and iOS mobile operating systems happen to be the two mainstream choices when it comes to tablets, Microsoft wants a slice of the action, too. Nokia, having been purchased by Microsoft not too long ago, has been a staunch supporter of the Windows platform for some time now, and they have just introduced the Nokia Lumia 2520 which will run on Windows RT 8.1.
Measuring 8.9mm thick and tipping the scales at slightly more than a pound, the Nokia Lumia 2520 will feature a Full HD 10.1” screen that was constructed out of Gorilla Glass 2 for additional toughness. Apart from that, it was manufactured in such a way to reduce the amount of reflection compared to its competitors, while accompanied by a superior brightness range that ought to let you view your content easily regardless of the lighting around. 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity would make sure that you will remain connected always , regardless of where you are. Running on Windows RT 8.1, the Nokia Lumia 2520 will feature 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory that can be expanded via a microSD memory card slot, SkyDrive cloud storage, a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 6.7-megapixel Auto Focus ZEISS optics with f1.9 aperture, and a massive 8,000 mAh to keep it going throughout the day.
Of course, what is the whole point of a tablet if it cannot last you throughout the day? The Lumia 2520 is no slouch when it comes to performance, as it sports a battery that can play a video for ten hours non-stop, without requiring a charge. This would get you far enough on long flights, especially if you are not on a plane with a power socket by the side. The battery itself also offers a quick start thanks to its ultra-fast charging time, allowing it to go from zero to 80 per cent charged in just an hour.
