iPad & Tablets: Nokia Lumia 2520
News & Reviews: Nokia Lumia 2520
Last Updated: Nov 26, 2013
While the Nokia Lumia 2520 may have started Nokia's tablet range, other Nokia tablets are rumoured to be coming soon, namely an 8-inch tablet going by the name of the Nokia Lumia 2020 or codenamed Illusionist. This 8-inch tablet is expected to arrive in Q1 of 2014 with tech specs that include Windows 8.1 RT and the aforementioned 8-inch screen. No Malaysia pricing or release dates but the Lumia 2020 tablet is expected to target the mid to high-end market. This would mean that it would compete with other 8-inch Windows 8.1 RT based tablets from Acer and Asus placing it around $300 (RM963) or so. Some other sources say that it may go for as low as $200 (RM642) to compete with the 7-inch tablet crowd like the Nexus 7 but we're thinking it would probably match similar Windows based 8-inch tablets. Tech specs for the Nokia Lumia 2020 could include a Snapdragon 800 processor, but we'll confirm everything once we get more information, so stay tuned.

One of the Nokia products supposedly set to be revealed at the Nokia World event made an early leaked appearance when what appears to be pics of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet appeared. Coming from evleaks, the Windows RT based tablet looks a lot like an enlarged Lumia smartphone, complete with colourful polycarbonate backside and a glass covered screen. According to rumours, the tablet will be coming in black, cyan, red and white, with the two images confirming at least two of these colours (why no yellow?). The tablet appears in cyan and red and looks quite nice, complete with what appears to be a Windows capacitive button at the bottom. Other tech specs for the tablet include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and processor, a 10.1 display with full HD 1080p and support for LTE connectivity. No Malaysia release dates or pricing just yet but we'll likely find out these details after the Nokia World event said to be happening in Abu Dhabi on 22 October 2013.

Previously teased with an image of skiers on a sand dune, the Nokia event for 22 October 2013 has been confirmed as the Nokia World event, to be held in Abu Dhabi. This time, the accompanying image is a view of Abu Dhabi with a Nokia sailboat again showing off hashtags such as #closer, #wayforward and #innovationreinvented. That being said, rumours are indicating that we could see quite a lot of new Nokia products revealed there including the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet and the 10.1-inch Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet. Other rumours indicate that 4 other devices may also make an appearance and accessories such as covers or keyboards could also appear as well. No news on other tech specs, features or Malaysia release dates but we're guessing we could see quite a few local launches after October 2013.

The Nokia Windows RT tablet previously codenamed as Sirius may have already got a name. This time it may be called the Nokia Lumia 2520. The leak comes courtesy of @evleaks, who has been surprisingly accurate about these Nokia naming conventions so far. Tech specs and features for the Lumia 2520 include a Snapdragon 800 processor, 1080p display, 32GB storage 4G LTE support and detachable keyboard cover. The 10.1-inch Windows RT tablet is expected to be launched on 22 October 2013 and we should probably be able to expect Malaysia release dates on or around said date. Pricing for the tablet is so far estimated to be around $499 (RM1584) so if you're thinking about Windows RT (and who exactly is?) then you should start saving up for October 2013.
