Nokia Lumia 2520 is the latest addition to the ever growing number of tablets in the market. The growth of mobile technology over the past few years has seen many companies join the tablet race with Nokia being the latest of them.
Nokia Lumia 2520 is Nokia’s first Windows tablet that has been on rumors for over a year now. You can say the Nokia Lumia 2520 is just an over-sized Windows Lumia phone and you won’t be far from it.

In the next few months the Nokia Lumia 2520 will compete with Microsoft’s Surface tablets for their share of the Windows-based tablet market share.
