Nokia Lumia 2520 is a great tablet released in October 2013, packed with an enormous 10.1" capacitive touch-screen, a very fast Quad-Core CPU clocking at 2.2 gigahertz, and two cameras, a 6.7 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2 megapixels front camera. We will get a better understanding of this tablet's specs when we get into specific details.

The Lumia 2520 is for sale in lots of color options, black, blue, red and white. Being just 0.35 inches thick,this tablet is very thin and comfortable. Though this tablet is only 10.51" long and 6.61" wide, it's able to fit a a 10.1 inches display. Nokia appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 21.69 oz tablet.

Nokia decided to build this tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip, packing a very powerful 2200 megahertz Quad-Core CPU and a big 2 GB RAM memory. Graphic calculations usually consume a lot of processor time, so this tablet counts with an Adreno 330 graphic processing unit running at 450 MHz to unload the CPU. The Nokia Lumia 2520 has a 32 GB huge internal storage memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, allowing you to store tons of apps, games, photos and videos without having to worry about filling it.

This device has two cameras, a 6.7 MP back-facing camera and a 2 megapixels front facing camera. It is capable of filming videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 frames per second. In addition, the camera counts with auto-focus and geo tagging.

The Lumia 2520 is equipped with a good level 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) 10.1 inches display, making everything look vivid. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 665 candela/m2 and has multi-touch detection.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 counts with a big capacity 8000 mAh non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours without charging it. An issue to evaluate is that the Nokia Lumia 2520's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, whereas with its 8000 mAh you will probably discard this device before it becomes an issue.

The Lumia 2520 features WiFi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance connection type and also HSPA+ connection type, a slower 4G network or fast 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Lumia 2520 works with a Micro SIM card for GSM connection.

This device also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and some sensors likeAccelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Nokia is selling this tablet for 580 dollars, quite close to other same level tablets. No matter if you will use it as a work device, are looking for a device majorly for internet broswing and social networks, want it to take lots of photos or want a gamer device, you will probably be very happy with it. When buying the Nokia Lumia 2520 you also receive SIM Door Key, Quick guide and Nokia Wall Charger AC-300.
