Nokia Lumia 2520
Overall, terrific tablet
So many great things about this Nokia 2520 tablet. The display is crystal clear. The live tiles are informative and cool. The 4G capability optimizes use particularly when commuting on trains or as a passenger in van pools or cars. The on screen keyboard works great. Preloaded Excel, Word, etc is a big benefit. However, having never used Windows 8.1 RT before, the best feature of this tablet for me is ease of use. It took no time at all to become familiar with and move in and out of tiles knowing which ones are open, multitask etc. Just a few things you need to know. Swipe from the left side (start from the black margin) of the screen to see what apps are open and swipe down from the top of the screen to close an app. Swiping from the right gives you setting, personalization and connection options while from the bottom is useful when using the internet because you can see what websites are open, set favorites etc.

incredible technology !
A side by side comparison of the I pad and the 2520 was amazing! The 2520 had a better screen... better speakers... far more functionality... the camera is better... Nokia put a lot of thought and craftsmanship into this powerful tablet! A perfect complement to my Nokia Lumia 928!

great for work,
I actually got the Nokia Lumina to replace my laptop- it comes with Microsoft Office and the optional Windows 7 desktop option which I like. The screen is very clear and bright, the speakers are loud, and the battery charges super fast and lasts much longer than most other devices. I also love the swipe layout to navigate from place to place. The only downside I've found is the limited amount of apps available (I miss my Google Chrome)- and I'm waiting on my keyboard!!!

Great Product Just waiting on Keyboard
I love my Nokia 2520. I wasn't sure about the Windows RT instead of full Windows, but found that I love it. Easy to use, Have apps for everything I could want, and they work extremely well and fluid. I also like that I can still get to windows explorer use desktop IE, and get to alot of other settings (Control Panel, etc# which I thought weren't available at all on Windows RT. NO, you cannot install desktop apps, and probably the weakest point of RT at this point is driver support, but I've found I can do directly, or indirectly, most everything I want with this. The Screen is absolutely beautiful, construction is excellent, battery life is very good, and the Keyboard will make it awesome. It is very responsive. I love how it can sync with my desktop login as well, and tap and share with my Lumia 1520. Long story short, the only thing I'm waiting on is my Free Keyboard for getting it. This was actually what made me switch to AT&T #Lumia 152, 2520 and deals).

I love my 2520. Screen is phenomenal. It is much easier to watch TV shows or movies on than an android, sound is great, and the camera is easy to use. My biggest complaint is lack of accessories. As a professional on the go.....I REALLY want that power keyboard. I decided to go with a windows tablet for a few reasons, not the least of which is the Microsoft office Suite. Having the USB port on the keyboard will allow me to easily edit or create docs and transfer to a flash drive. Come on Nokia... get that keyboard in the hands of us that love this tablet!

Exactly What I Needed!!!
I got mine in November and aside from some minor initial glitches that were easily taken care of on the blog or by Customer Support, my expectations have been more than met. I was unsure of what to expect from 8.1RT but have found it quite workable. I am sure Microsoft and Nokia will continue to make improvements. I have an iPad Mini as well and find the 2520 far more useful for my needs. This tablet blows all of the others away in connectivity and outside screen visibility. I will purchase a Windows 8.1 Pro unit when you offer one. Keep up the great Products! I was just notified that my Type Cover is on the way. I forgot to mention what a great team this makes with my Lumia 920!
