The tablet has a 2MP front camera for “selfies” and a 6.7MP rear camera featuring Zeiss optics. The Lumia 2520 includes 32 GB of integrated storage; that can be expanded using the integrated microSD slot.
The tablet has integrated LTE connectivity and uses a micro SIM. Other connectivity features include a 3.5 mm audio connector, USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 4.0, integrated Wi-F, and NFC.
Nokia also gave the Lumia 2520 the ability to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight connected devices. The tablet also has integrated A-GPS, A-GLONASS, and a magnetometer.

This is exactly right I already get tethering on my phone, and with Windows Phone + Surface it can make a WiFi hotspot via a Bluetooth connection so I don't even need to get the phone out of my pocket.
I'd rather get the Surface 2.
They need to make a WiFi only one, but on the other hand I doubt LTE costs $130 like Apple charges, so not sure how much they'd be able to get the cost down by removing LTE.

Good point, the difference in cost to them would probably (like you said) be MUCH less than $100.
They may sell only the LTE version with the expectation that people who don't need LTE on their tablet just won't activate or use it.
