It may not be an iPad, but the Nokia logo still counts for something. Nokia today unveiled their first and quite possibly last tablet ever in the form of the new Nokia Lumia 2520.
The Lumia 2520 is quite the looker and follows Nokia’s long standing tradition of polycarbonate chassis designs. The Lumia 2520 features a 10.2-inch 1080p display, a 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 6.7MP ZEISS camera, dual stereo front facing speakers, ceramic side keys, Windows RT 8.1 with Microsoft Office and Outlook pre-installed, Nokia’s HERE maps, a 8,000mAh battery, LTE and a wide range of epic colours. The Lumia 2520 will go on sale later this quarter for just $499, but it remains to be seen if it can make an impact in a market dominated by Apple’s iPad line.
Apple is expected to launch some new iPads later today, taking away the last bit of spotlight Nokia had left for the day. Do you think the Lumia 2520 is competitive enough to take on the iPad?
Tomorrow is Nokia’s big day, Nokia World 2013 and more than likely Nokia’s last official large launch even ever, at least where smartphones are concerned. We are set to see quite a few devices launch including a phablet and the long awaited Nokia tablet. Now, Batman’s cape has been lifted.
The caped crusader is none other than the Nokia Lumia 1320, basically the Nokia Lumia 820′s successor if you think of it, maybe even the Lumia 720′s successor. EVLeaks has shown off some mighty fine hardware and it seems as though the Lumia 1320 will feature a 5-inch display with a 720p resolution, making it a cross between the Lumia 820, Lumia 720 with a hint of Lumia 625. The device is set to be joined by the 1080p touting 6-inch Lumia 1520, 10.1-inch Lumia 2520, and the three mid-range musketeers, the Asha 500, Asha 502 and Asha 503.
All and all Nokia is sure to pull out all the stops, sadly everyone will be watching the Apple event, tweeting about it, thinking about it and in essence missing the last hurrah for a global mobile icon that is about to cease its existence. Farewell Nokia, we’ll miss your name on some mighty fine gadgets!
Just when you thought the Nexus 5 leaks couldn’t get any better, they just did. New images have surfaced showing off what looks to be the Google Nexus 5′s retail packaging, revealing what looks to be a white variant of the Nexus 5.
The Google Nexus 5 is expected to launch on October 28 starting at $349, at least that is what most of the leaks thus far has revealed. The latest leak shows off the device’s retail packaging, looking pretty much identical to the design Nokia used on the device packaging for many years now. On the one image, a white Nexus 5 is shown, albeit only the rear of the Nexus 5 in the image is white. Last year’s Nexus 4 took several month before a white variant showed up, many hope that this will not be the case again this year.
The Google Nexus 5 is expected to be quite a hit when it launches later this month and all eyes are on LG to make sure there are no stock shortages this year, unlike last year’s Nexus 4 fiasco…
In what seems to have been an accident by a Google employee, the Google Nexus 5 was briefly shown off on the company’s Google Play store, adding some new bits of information that we’ve been waiting quite a while to hear.
With just 10 days to go until Google officially unveils the new Google Nexus 5 alongside Android 4.4 KitKat, they have accidentally given us a glimpse into what the company will show off on October 28th. The Nexus 5 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 16GB/32GB of non-expandable storage and a 2,300mAh battery. The Nexus 5 will go on sale for $349 for the 16GB model, and the 32GB model may go for as little as $399. The Nexus 4 is expected to get an LTE upgrade and sell for $299.
Google may very well have yet another winner on their hands this year, if LG can cope with the demand that is likely to overwhelm them, just like last year. All and all, it seems Google may end this year off with a bang…
Great news to all of those stuck on Windows, Windows 8.1 is officially out. The much improved desktop operating system has started rolling out today to existing Windows 8 users and is available for purchase to newcomers starting at $120. Windows 8 users can finally get a taste of Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store, just remember its huge, so make sure you don’t use the whole month’s data allowance up tonight. Users of older operating systems or newcomers to the Windowsphere will be able to snag the standard version for $120 and Windows 8.1 Pro for $200, both are quite hefty prices. Windows 8.1 brings back the Start button, albeit not the fun old one we have all known since birth. There are loads of new additions to Windows 8.1 such as the new Start button, better application integration as well as Internet Explorer 11, the fastest way to download Google Chrome. You can check for the update, or wait a few days for the initial load on the servers to subside. Or you could buy a new Mac or Chromebook!
