Dynamite Debuts In The Desert: Nokia Reveals New Phablets, RT Tablet

Lumia 2520

Nokia's first tablet operates Windows RT 8.1, and despite the first RT disaster, Nokia said the device is advanced enough that it could be used to replace a laptop or desktop. The tablet sports a 10.1-inch, HD 1080p display and weighs in at just over a pound. On the inside, the 2520 runs on a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal memory. In addition, the device's storage can be expanded through a micro SD card or SkyDrive cloud storage. The tablet has 4G LTE connectivity and is Bluetooth-compatible. The rear-facing 6.7-megapixel camera and the front-facing 2-megapixel camera can both leverage the new preloaded Windows apps to enhance photos and videos. Nokia claims the device is capable of playing up to 10 hours of video on a single charge and can regain well over half its charge in under an hour. The Nokia Power Keyboard with USB ports and an extra five hours of battery life can be purchased separately.
