New Nokia World

    Hello, Habr!

    Today we are pleased to introduce you to six innovative devices presented by us at a conference in Abu Dhabi, as well as talk about new applications for our devices.


    All in one: Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet

    We present you our first tablet - Nokia Lumia 2520, running on Windows 8.1 RT.

    “Everything on your PC or laptop is saved and downloaded to your tablet, which weighs just over a pound and has a thickness of only 8.9 mm,” says project manager Paul Bischof. - Most modern devices are used to consume information, rather than to create it. But we believe that there is a demand for the creation of information that we are able to satisfy.
    That’s why we created the Lumia 2520, a tablet that people can use all day and for everything they’d like to do. ”


    Nokia Lumia 2520 is ideally suited for life on the move, largely due to the large number of features that allow you to keep abreast of everything. A 10.1-inch 1080p high-definition screen made of durable Gorilla Glass 2 gives much less glare and reflection, unlike other tablets; The improved brightness range and wide viewing angle allow you to work under various lighting conditions, and the 4G-LTE modem and Wi-Fi provide a lightning fast Internet connection, regardless of where you are.

    All the hardware, including the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, was chosen for seamless interaction with the touch screen and OS and efficient operation without heating the battery.

    The Lumia 2520 tablet easily handles tests such as playing video for ten hours non-stop without recharging. Thanks to the new design of the battery, the charging time has been significantly reduced, for example, the charging process from 0 to 80% takes about an hour.

    Along with the Nokia Lumia 2520, we are pleased to introduce the Nokia Power Keyboard, which will be the best companion for your tablet. Each keyboard will be equipped with a touchpad and complemented by a case that provides maximum protection for your tablet. The Nokia Power Keyboard also has a second battery, which increases the use time by five additional hours, and two USB ports for connecting other devices.


    On the back of the tablet is a 6.7-megapixel camera with ZEISS optics and an aperture of F1.9, which ensures high quality images and videos even in low light. Two new applications from Nokia - Storyteller and Video Director - will help you process the created content and quickly share it with your friends. On the front panel is a second, 2-megapixel camera designed for video calls.

    Windows 8.1 allows you to easily install the full version of Microsoft Outlook, as well as other Microsoft Office programs. In addition, thanks to Nokia, you will be the first to see the new version of the HERE Maps application, with which you can now quickly navigate in any area, even without an Internet connection. In addition, the Nokia Music app, for free listening to music online and offline, has not been left behind and will be available on our tablet.

    Nokia Lumia 2520 will be available in four primary colors: red and blue, white and black. The start of sales is planned in several countries at once: the USA, Great Britain, Finland and Russia. The estimated price of a tablet in the world will be about $ 459, prices in Russia will be announced later.
