The Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet has also been officially announced and it marks Nokia's first device in 10.1-inch tablet territory. It is also packing in Windows RT 8.1 for the operating system along with a number of unique tech specs and features you won't find in the official Microsoft Windows RT tablet which is the Surface 2. This includes a super bright 665 nits 10.1-inch screen with full HD 1080p resolution, a PureView rear camera and new custom apps like the Nokia Camera app, Nokia Video Director, HERE Maps, Nokia Music and even a game in the form of the Dragons Adventure based on the How to train your Dragon movie from Dreamworks. The design doesn't stray far from the standard Lumia smartphone and includes a colourful polycarbonate backside and glass covered screen.

As standard of a Windows RT tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520 also packs in Microsoft Outlook and Office for free. With the other Nokia apps rounding it up, the limited app condition that most Windows RT tablets suffer from isn't so bad with the Nokia Lumia 2520, making it a reasonable buy if you're looking for a Windows RT work computer. Like Surface 2 it comes with a power cover which has a built-in battery and keyboard along with a gesture trackpad. No Malaysia release dates for the Nokia Lumia 2520 just yet but we'll update this as soon as we get more details.
