With Nokia’s formal entry into the tablet space with the Lumia 2520, it’s time for the tablet wars to spice up again – not that they never died anyway.
In a new advert, Nokia makes a few pokes at a tablet that looks suspiciously like an iPad. The video goes on to point out how the Lumia 2520 is far superior in that is has a physical keyboard (via an accessory), a fast-charging battery, and Microsoft Office built in. What the ad fails to mention is that the Lumia 2520 runs Windows RT, a stripped-down version of Windows that only runs apps from the Windows store, and not native Windows applications. There’s very little to really entice someone to buy a Lumia 2520 to be honest, with the exception being Nokia’s funky color schemes that will no doubt migrate over to the tablet segment.
We’ll have to wait and see just how the Lumia 2520 fares in the tablet wars, but for now it’s anyone’s game.
