What happens when you blend the goodness of Nokia Lumia devices and Microsoft Surface II?
Answer: You will get the largest of the Lumia series which is Nokia Lumia 2520!
Stephen Elop, at the outset, introduced Ifi Majid, Nokia’s head of North American product marketing, to unwrap the Nokia Lumia 2520.
Ifi Majid began by explaining how the device looks and how it feels when in hands. This device has a cutting edge design and comes with radiant colors which above all the other goodies, entice us! The product manager expressed that 2520 feels great in hands because of the tapered edges and he also said this device would be great for outdoors! This has a full HD 1920×1080 (218ppi) display. The key feature on the display unit is its high brightness with low reflectance (6% reflectiveness) for best outdoor readability. The Gorilla Glass 2 with Nokia’s Clear Black Display filter makes it thinner giving more output and making it firm from the display standpoint.
The volume controls and power/lock button are both on the top frame, while the USB 3.0 and HDMI ports are positioned on the right side. The left side holds the headphone jack and charging port. There’s a 6.7MP Pureview rear camera and 2MP HD front-facing camera for Skype calls.
