AT&T Starts Offering Windows-Based Tablet Nokia Lumia 2520 to Customers
AT&T has announced that it would soon start offering Nokia Corp’s tablet PC to its subscribers. The wireless carrier revealed that Nokia Lumia 2520 would be available through its stores starting Friday (November 22). This should be good news to consumers who have been waiting for the new tablet since it was announced by Nokia a few months ago.
Nokia Lumia 2520 would be available through AT&T for $399.99 along with a two-year subscription contract. There is another option: it could be purchased for just $199.99 if the two-year contract would be bundled with any of Nokia smartphones like Lumia 925, Lumia 1520, or Lumia 1020.
Compared to Windows RT
The Windows tablet has a 10-inch HD screen. Of course, it is operated through Windows RT 8.1. This makes it comparable to the infamous Windows RT, which had incurred numerous bad reviews in the past. However, some analysts think that Nokia tablet is an improved and prettier version of that tablet PC.
This is also the reason why some reviewers describe Nokia Lumia 2520 as a ‘Surface tablet that is dressed as a modern Lamborghini.’ They could not discount the interesting features added like the LTE for better Internet connectivity, two USB ports, and a wraparound case unfolding to become a keyboard.
Other impressive features
Nokia Lumia 2520 has Snapdragon 800 processor. It also comes with a 6.7 megapixel rear camera, making it ideal for taking pictures. Physically, it is also light and convenient as it weighs only 22 ounces. It has 32GB of built-in memory and a micro-SD slot for memory expansion. Its mAh battery could last up to 11 hours of continuous usage.
Not surprisingly, the device has built-in Microsoft Office and Outlook. According to reviewers, the Microsoft Office coming with the tablet makes the device an ideal tool for professionals who are always on the go. It also makes working with the suite as easy and fast as using popular music, video, and apps.
Moreover, many reviews also rave about Nokia Lumia 2520’s ‘killer design,’ which accordingly makes the product a really remarkable tablet for just about anyone. Those who were given the opportunity to take a hands-on trial of the device attest that the new Nokia tablet is something that the market should look forward to. Now that it is on AT&T, there could be less excuse not to get and use one.
