Delayed Nokia Lumia 2520 Power Keyboard is available and priced at $149

The Nokia Lumia 2520 was Nokia's first attempt at a Windows RT tablet. The Lumia 2520 had the latest specifications and borrowed its sleek design elements and material from popular Lumia handsets. While reviews were generally favorable, with our own Brad Sams assigning it an 8.5 / 10, there was just one thing missing. The Nokia Lumia 2520 was touted as a productivity tablet but did not have a keyboard. It wasn't because Nokia didn't offer one, it's because they weren't available. The Power Keyboard was absent from U.S. and global markets. 

Nearly four months after the release of the Nokia Lumia 2520, Verizon and AT&T have finally received stock of the coveted keyboard. The Nokia Power Keyboard is a physical keyboard with chiclet style keys, a track pad, two full-size USB 2.0 ports, and an extra 2027 mAh battery. The battery should provide up to five hours of additionally battery life. The keyboard has a wraparound cover that protects the tablet and also acts as a stand, allowing users to prop the Lumia 2520 in an upright position. 

The Power Keyboard is currently available from AT&T and Verizon. The keyboard comes in black (it is also available in red but unlisted on both sites) and retails for $149.

It is still a tablet with a keyboard attachment (2-pieces). It has a niche in the PC marketplace. Certainly not a substitute for a laptop, or even a desktop if serious data entry or content creation) is needed.

optional keyboard cover, just like you can get for ipads.

its a tablet first and foremost, but if you want to use it with a keyboard you can get one, any keyboard, but this particular one is made to enhance this particular device in terms of aesthetics and battery life.

simple, no?

I think its the best tablet/cover combination ever. 18 hours of battery life + you are connected everywhere. and I worked with it on store I felt in love with it. keyboard is not as nice as surface but the device is much nicer than surface (lighter and thinner)

There are a few things still missing from Windows RT, but with VLC pending I'm mostly only holding out for a comic reader that supports webp images (and while I'm wishing, syncs with ComicRack). I'm almost definitely going to get one within the year. I just can't decide if I want the 2520 or the Surface 2.

VLC is a nice addition to the software selection, but not really a must have anymore. Cyberlink's Power Media Player pretty much plays those files smoothly which the native video player refuses to play (e.g. mkv).

I got my 2520 about a month ago and no regrets whatsoever (smooth sailing so far). Although the screen is somewhat a fingerprint magnet, but it's super bright so you don't need to be wiping it every second.

After looking at an RT tablet a month ago, I really do consider getting one in the future. It was really nice... Before I didnt know why you would get one as there are tablets that run windows 8 full now.

This article is weird. Its been available for at least a month now, maybe 2. My brother bought one from an ATT store back at the end of January.

Corporate stores are for consumers. They're just stores that are run directly by ATT. The one he purchased his keyboard from is located in the busiest shopping mall in Delaware.
