Nokia’s Lumia 2520 tablet may reach Verizon on November 17, priced at $499
On October 22, Nokia is holding an event in Abu Dhabi where it’s expected to announce no less than six new devices. One of these has long been rumored to be the Lumia 2520, the Finnish company’s first tablet. It was said to be a ten-incher, and it will run Windows 8.1 RT (perhaps helping this version of Windows finally get some traction – though not likely).
Now some details about the 2520’s availability have surfaced thanks to a purportedly trusted source who spoke to Windows Phone Central. The Nokia Lumia 2520 will be priced at $499, and Verizon will release it with 4G LTE support on board on November 17 or November 18 (the exact date is still in flux, it appears). The tablet will be sold through the Microsoft Store.

The Lumia 2520 will be out in black and red, it’s said, though whether those words refer to two separate models or just one which has both colors on it remains to be seen. The internal storage space will be 32 GB, and how much of that will actually be user accessible isn’t known at this point. Fortunately, the amount should be expandable.
Past rumors spoke about this tablet sporting a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 10-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, and a 6.7 MP camera with Zeiss branding. The whole tablet should weigh around 1.3 pounds (589 grams), and it will be optimized for outdoor visibility.
