This tablet has a lot going for it with its fast performance, wonderful design, great design and wonderful battery life.

Most of us are keen of Nokia for making phones however since everyone else is in the computer and tablet business the brand decided to give making tablets a go. The Nokia Lumia 2520 is the companies first attempt at trying to enter the tablet market.
Design and Display
When it comes to the design the 2520 from Nokia is no slouch. Looking like a freshly paint sports car the tablet is simply designed to kill. The red paint with square edges shakes things up a bit and goes away from the normal dull tablet look.
The color is great and the display by far knocks out most of its competition. If you are looking for the tablet that allows you use in the sun this is the one for you. There is no trouble using or viewing the web or using apps while in the sun with the Lumia 2520.
Performance, Audio, Camera
This is not your grandmother’s slow computer. The Nokia Lumia 2520 boots up in about 25 seconds and is incredibly fast. Speed remains consistent even when you have multiple things going on at the same time such as playing a movie while having a few apps open.
The camera and camcorder were ok and not up to what you would expect. Pictures on the display appeared grainy but not sure how they would be once printed. Some of the photos just seemed to be a little to bright.
For the audio, this Lumia 2520 comes with two speakers are clean and almost hidden in the design of the tablet. However the sound is great if listening on a lower volume. Once cranked up you get the loudness but not the quality you would want.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 comes with the 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM. For storage you will get 32GB and the screen for the 2520 is 10.1 with a display resolution of 1920 x 1080.
This tablet does come with Bluetooth and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. The operating system is Windows RT 8.1 with the Adreno 330 graphics chip. 6.7 mega pixel is the camera resolution and 2.0 MP for the front facing camera resolution.
Headphone, proprietary, microHDMi, and microUSB round out your ports and microSIM and microSD take care of the card readers.
This tablet comes in weighing 1.4 pounds measuring 10.5 x 6.6 x 0.35 inches. It does come with limited application selection and the camera is not the best.
