Finnish firm hopes its Lumia colourful tablet will take on Apple’s iPad and Microsoft’s Surface. But is it any good?
Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet runs Windows RT 8.1 in a colourful frame.
The imminent release of Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia’s first tablet, the Windows RT 8.1-based Lumia 2520, aims to take on Apple’s iPad and the Microsoft Surface.
A 10.1in Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520 is a direct challenge to Microsoft’s own Surface line of tablet computers – despite Nokia becoming a Microsoft company – and attempts to make Windows tablets more colourful, vibrant and connected with built-in 4G broadband support.
The 2520 is Nokia’s first tablet but, given the clash with the Surface tablets, it could also be its last. So is it any good? The first early reviews are in, and the general consensus seems to be that it is no Surface or iPad killer.
