Another new custom Nokia app for the 2520, Video Director, to edit and make videos etc.  Looks pretty cool.

Lumia 2520 has a Power keyboard, with two USB ports.

 

Dunno price yet but rumor was $499 so a bit more than surface 2.

 

*Edit*  It's official, $499 price, $149 for the power keyboard.

It's a bit pricy yeah, but you do get some extras that aren't on the Surface 2 for the extra $50, like LTE and plus the Nokia exclusive apps.  Though if the deal goes through all those Nokia apps are just going to be part of Windows and Windows Phone in the future.

LTE is coming to the Surface 2 next year anyways, so it'll be the design and exclusive apps that set the Nokia apart.  Just like their phones.  :)  .

http://www.wpcentral...-windows-tablet

Windows RT 8.1
10.1” full 1080p HD AH-IPS, High Brightness with Low Reflectance, Gorilla Glass 2
6.7MP Auto Focus ZEISS optics, Secondary: 2MP HD wide-angle
Video 1080p@60fps
4G LTE
Nokia Music for unlimited streaming of ad-free music
Free global HERE Maps
Microsoft Office built-in
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (2.2GHz Quad Core)
8000 mAh (integrated)
Red, White (glossy), Cyan, Black (matte)

And yes, the Surface 2 will get a 4G/LTE version next year but you can bet it'll be for the same price, $450 wifi only and $499 for the wifi+4G/LTE option I bet.

I want a 1080 4.5 Inch screen. Not a fan of the really big screen

 

But why ? do you often view your screen with a microscope ?

No, but I'm guessing they're going to come out when the new devices do and then go up for other Lumia users, as far as the phone goes.  Some apps are exclusive to the tablet though so you'll need a 2520 to get those.

Yep agreed. 6 inch+ phones are a joke. Dont know what phone to get with my upgrade now as was hoping the 1320 was going to be the same specs but smaller.

Do people not realise how ridiculous stuff like this is:

Greater pixel density for text rending without looking ridiculous holding a phablet to his ear would be my guess.

I get that the size is big, even for me, I'd like a 5" at this point.  But you know, if looking silly is the issue you can just go handsfree and use a Bluetooth handset with it.  The advantage of the bigger screen is in other things, videos, reading, gaming etc.
