There has been no shortage of rumors about Nokia’s upcoming tablet, presumably called the Lumia 2520. The latest rumor suggests that Verizon will launch the tablet in the third week of November and will offer it for $499. Since Big Red is going to offer it, the tablet is going to have a LTE radio that will make it compatible with Verizon’s 4G network. AT&T is rumored to carry a LTE compatible variant of the Lumia 2520 as well, it is expected to launch its model in early November. An exact date for both carriers is not available at this point in time.
As per the various rumors we’ve heard about the Nokia Lumia 2520 up till now, the tablet is likely to have a quadcore Qualcomm 8974 processor, a 6.7 megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Windows RT and a 1,920×1,080 10.1 inch IPS display. The tablet is expected to be available in a variety of colors, black, white, cyan and red will apparently be on offer. Nokia’s tablet will be a welcome addition to the Windows tablet lineup, given the fact that it is expected to come with LTE compatibility out of the box. Microsoft’s new tablets, Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, don’t have the capability right now. LTE SKUs of the new Surface tablets are expected to be released next year. Nokia is rumored to make the Lumia 2520 announcement at Nokia World 2013 in Abu Dhabi, on October 22nd.
