Alleged new leak of Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet shows a possible kickstand

As we get closer to the Nokia World press event to be held on October 22nd in Abu Dhabi, it stands to reason that more alleged photo leaks of the products the company plans to officially announce at that press gathering will continue to pop up on the Internet beforehand. The latest such alleged leak claims to show the back of the rumored Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.

The image, which was first posted on a Sina Weibo account and later uploaded on the Chinese language site Ctech, looks like the tablet has a built in kickstand. Unlike Microsoft's Surface family of tablets, where the kickstand takes up the whole bottom portion of the tablets' back, it looks like the kickstand, as depicted on the image, is in the center and has perhaps a bit more of a conventional design compared to the Surface. The image also appears to show a SIM door and a headphone port.

Previous rumors about the Lumia 2520 claim that it will have a 10.1 inch screen, run Windows RT on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and will support an optional keyboard that will also serve as a second extended battery for the device.

64 bits with that much RAM memory will probably make it a very powerful PC computer.
We don't even know the stats of the device yet and it would have to be greater than 4gb of ram for it to be useful to be 64bits. But yea, what you said I guess.

I think in the future we will see devices with at least 8 GB bytes of RAM memory, so the need for 64 bit digit addressable space will be necessary.

Whoosh.

Care to give us a time frame Nostradamus? In the future all things will have at least 8gb of ram.

Also 8 Gigabytes bytes of Random Access Memory Memory. I'm in love with this thread.

Apparently the Nokia tablet uses the Qualcomm S800 which means it will run rings around the Nvidia Tegra4 SoC in the Surface2. If they manage to bring it in at the same pricepoint as the Surface2 but with LTE it will be a killer..

Surface 2 will get LTE too.

Got some benchmarks to verify that the S800 will "run rings" around the Tegra 4?

I've only seen a handful of comparisons and none suggest the S800 completely obliterates the T4.

That seems unlikely. The T4 and the S800 are very much in the same ballpark. If anything, the T4 may win. The main downside is that it doesn't have LTE support (yet).
