When it comes to tablets, Nokia is the new kid on the block. It’s a block dominated by Apple and Android, and Nokia is doing all it can to get some attention but how much is too much?
Enter what probably is the weirdest tablet commercial ever. While competitors are busy touting features and specs Nokia is taking a decidedly different approach. The message, ‘our tablet is as practical as a mullet. All set or business, all set for party’.
Have we gotten your curiousity? Head on over to after jump to see why Nokia’s latest Lumia 2520 commercial is its weirdest ever.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 is Nokia’s first ever tablet and it ain’t holding back when it comes to dissing the competition. With its new ad, it directly mocks its main competition that’s as “thin as a pencil” urging audience to think if they bought the right tablet.
Aimed at road warriors that wants to reduce the bulk of a laptop, the ad shows off the Lumia 2520 advantage of running Windows 8 RT with Microsoft Office and its physical keyboard that doubles up as an extra battery pack. No doubt the advantage of having Microsoft Office & keyword is a clear win for doing work on the go but the iPad still leads when it comes to entertainment/games with its wide variety of apps.
Watch the ad after the break.
Nokia has just announced the Lumia 2520, its first attempt in the tablet category that runs on Windows RT 8.1. In terms of design, the Lumia 2520 tablet follows the experience of its current colourful poly-carbonate Lumia smart phones and it comes with a choice of 4 striking colours – Red, Cyan, Black and White. While tablets are moving towards smaller sized 7″-8″ dimensions, Nokia went with a bigger 10.1″ IPS display that boasts a Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 with a claimed viewing angle of 180 degrees. The display also illuminates a rather bright 650 nits, making it rather usable in outdoor conditions.
In terms of processing power, you won’t be disappointed with its top of the line 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, similar to its current flagship Lumia 1520 smart phone. On-board it comes with 32GB of storage which can be expanded with additional 32GB via microSD.
For taking photos and videos, the Lumia 2520 comes with a 6.7MP camera mated with ZEISS optics, a first for tablets. It also comes with a microSIM slot that supports 4G LTE connectivity as well. At the sides, there’s a micro HDMI port and a wider micro USB 3.0 port that’s similar to the one found on the Galaxy Note 3.
Despite having a generous 8,000mAh battery, it still manages to maintain a respectably slim 8.9mm thickness and weighs 615 grams. As comparison, the current 4th gen iPad with Retina Display is 9.4mm thick and 652 grams heavy.
Will this be a game changer? As the first tablet for Nokia, the specs on paper looks promising but the Windows RT operating system has yet to prove itself as a compelling platform.
