Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet launching in UK on Dec 4 for £399.99

Just a few days after Nokia announced UK launch details for its giant 6-inch Windows Phone, the Lumia 1520, the company has now revealed details of pricing and availability there for its first Windows tablet. 

The Lumia 2520 will launch in the UK on December 4, and will be exclusively available from John Lewis department stores. John Lewis, you may remember, was also the first UK retailer to offer the Surface RT in its stores. 

Nokia's new Windows RT tablet will go on sale for £399.99. The Power Keyboard Case, which connects to the device and extends its battery life by up to five hours, will also be sold at John Lewis, but will not be available immediately; Nokia says that it will arrive "in the coming weeks", and will cost £149.95. 

The Lumia 2520 will be available in four colours: glossy white or red, or a matte-finished black or cyan. While the device includes a SIM slot for 3G/4G connectivity, those who were hoping that they would be able to pick it up at a lower price with a carrier subsidy will be disappointed.

Those willing to pay the full price will be getting their hands on a device with a 10.1-inch Full HD (1920x1080px) display protected by Gorilla Glass 2, as well as a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. 32GB of onboard storage is available, as is a microSD slot, supporting cards up to 64GB.

A 6.7MP rear camera with ZEISS optics is included, along with a 2MP HD wide-angle front-facing cam. An 8120mAh battery offers up to 11 hours of video playback, and standby time of up to 25 days. A full list of specs is available on the Nokia site

last night I played with it for a while at Microsoft store, it's apparently a better tablet than Surface 2. If I bought a Windows RT tablet, I'd choose 2520 over Surface 2. When they are in your hands, you'd know it.

What no "Windows RT? - DOA!" comment?

It's been super-easy the last few days to spot the journos who still believe desktop-apps have any place on a 10" handheld....

In US, Nokia is offering the Power Keyboard for free with Tablets purchased until Dec 2. Why don't they offer same promotions in Europe...

So £550 with keyboard? Pah! Guess I'll get surface 2 then @£100 less :-( unless Nokia giving away free keyboards as they did in the US ??

I reckon they should have tried their hardest to come in at £349.99 just so it comes in at being cheaper than the iPad Air. Keyboard is £50 too much as well... looks a great machine but I don't see it doing all that well really.

My money would go on Surface 2 any day.
