news Nokia this week revealed that its flagship Lumia 2520 tablet would be sold in Australia principally through the nation’s largest telco Telstra, but with a significant markup on the unit’s price which will see Australians slugged with around 56 percent more for the exact same product than United States buyers will pay.
The Lumia 2520 is Nokia’s attempt to match Microsoft’s Surface tablet series as well as Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab lines, and was conceived before the Finnish smartphone manufacturer was acquired by Redmind. The device ships with Windows RT 8.1 and featurs a 10.1″ 1080p full HD touchscreen, a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 6.7 megapixel rear camera and a 1.2 megapixel front-facing model. It measures 267 by 168 by 8.9mm, and weighs 615g. It also supports 4G speeds up to 150Mbps down and 50Mbps up, and comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and support for a microSD card up to 64GB.
In a statement released this week, Nokia said the unit would be available exclusively with Telstra online from today (6th May), and in stores nationally from 13th May. Continue…
