Lumia 2520 will ship in Q4
Nokia has officially unveiled its first Windows RT tablet: the Lumia 2520. The new tablet features a 10.1-inch full HD resolution IPS display that uses Nokia ClearBlack technology.
The Lumia 2520 runs Windows RT 8.1 and features a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor running at 2.2 GHz. 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.

The tablet gets power from an internal 8000 mAh rechargeable battery. Nokia says that the tablet is good for 25 days of standby time. The Lumia 2520 measures 168 mm long x 267 mm wide x 8.9 mm thick and weighs 615 g.
The Lumia 2520 will be available in glossy red and white or matte cyan and black colors. Nokia expects to ship the tablet starting in Q4 for $499 before taxes and subsidies.

I think the price is pretty competitive considering it has LTE. That means it could be $99 (or even free) on a 2 year contract. That alone will sell at least a dozen of them. Maybe even two dozen given enough time.
I look forward to more Windows tablets. Once you get used to Windows 8, it's pretty intuitive. A good mix of webOS gestures and Windows familiarity (office, file sharing/networking, internet explorer, etc) The most exciting thing about this is the camera and NFC, though.

Now, if only they revised there developer license program to actually allow for open development on the platform. And no, I don't mean the insanely more-complicated-than-necessary enterprise side-loading solution. I mean actual free development on RT for all. If MS could just do this, that would really enable the platform to thrive.
