Lumia 2520 tablet shows up in The Source business guide by T-Mobile

We’ve not heard a whisper about the supposed upcoming T-Mobile friendly Lumia 2520 since the now-retired @evleaks showed it off last month. But, thanks to a tip from Tin (@atomic50) on Twitter, we’ve discovered that it’s included in T-Mobile’s “The Source for Business” guide online. The snapshot above shows up as one of the four options in the ‘Choosing the right tablets for your workspace’ section, alongside some of the usual Android, Samsung and Apple suspects.

Sadly there are no prices on show, and the device doesn’t yet show up on the consumer or business online stores, so there’s little else to share details-wise. If you’re a T-Mobile business customer, the best way to discover more is to call your rep (as suggested in the guide). The device features the following key specs:

  • 10.1-inch, 1920x1080p IPS LCD display  (218ppi)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 2.2GHz quad-core, Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 32GB storage (expandable via Micro SD up to extra 64GB)
  • 6.7MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics (1080p video recording)
  • 2MP front camera with 720p video
  • 8,120mAh battery
  • 802.11 Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n) and Cat 4 LTE (up to 150Mbps downloads)
  • Dolby sound enhancement through headphones
  • HDMI port
  • Runs Windows 8.1 RT

What makes this exciting is that it’s the first Windows tablet T-Mobile has stocked, and is regarded as one of the best on the market. At least, the best looking, thanks to Nokia’s superb hardware design. In the mean time, keep an eye out on T-Mo’s online store for updates, and let us know if you get them in your own store.

    Meh. Windows RT = fail

    • BlackJu

      Your name removed all credibility.

      • Paul

        I agree with you, but there was a LOT of criticism of RT.

        • BlackJu

          My only gripe is that it has a desktop. It should be 100% metro/modern. It felt unfinished. There is an issue of price as well. Why buy RT when I can get full Windows with good battery life for nearly the same price? Only pro for RT in that situation is you don’t need virus and malware protection. I think it might have a place, but they didn’t do enough to make it distinct.

        • mingkee

          The major problem of RT is you can’t install regular Windows app (e.g. FireFox) on it.

        • http://aikenareaprogressive.blogspot.com/ jovan1984

          Bingo! That is why I bought a full Windows 8.1 tablet instead. Too bad not one of the full tablets support 4G.

  • BlackJu

    I think this is might be too late, like most tablet offerings from T-Mobile. I wouldn’t be surprised if T-Mobile just waits for ATT overstock to become available. They should just wait to release with threshold. But it is a very nice tablet and RT is suitable for most mobile computing needs. I bought a full Windows 8.1 tablet and months later, I have 0 desktop apps except for office which is being converted to modern.

  • mingkee

    Windows RT?
    No thanks.

    • Paul

      That’s the one thing I noticed that made me cringe. RT?

  • besweeet

    The tablet seems somewhat dated already… I wish ASUS would make a cellular version of the T100.

  • IamDefiler

    Price?

  • Alex Zapata

    Feels like too little too late…

    • Paul

      How so?

      • Alex Zapata

        Maybe it’s just me, and that’s quite the possibility, but I feel like this is a device that should have been available much closer to its release date. I don’t know how well they’re selling but speaking anecdotally I’ve never seen one in the wild. I hope TMO pushses it though.

  • Jeohns

    This post is way too late, this device has been out available on T-Mobile for almost a month…..

    • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

      Um, no it hasn’t.

      • jeohns

        Lmao oh but you are so wrong. This site doesn’t pay attention to T mobile business offerings closely enough. Tmo business launches devices well before tmo consumer.

        • jeohns

          I would guess you also don’t know tmo has anAlcatel LTE USB data stick, a bit more research would help!

  • conservative_motorcyclist

    Windows RT is dead, no one wants this crap.
    Let’s get some of the 8″-10″ Atom Tablets with T-Mobile friendly LTE!

  • spartanjet

    I wanted this tablet a year ago. Windows RT is actually the best mobile OS out thee ADroid or that itoyOS can’t touch it.

  • Hiro

    I was a Surface Pro 3 LTE on T-Mobile…

    • ChitChatCat

      What are you now?

  • jawash22

    Once again..only low end crap. Don’t care about RT! Should be teasing the 1020,1520, 930, etc. Where are top WP’s at! Please don’t say “Get the 635.” like some idiots say…lol

  • vinnyjr

    Great tablet along with the keyboard makes it a real work horse. The tablet gives two additional ports, docking set up, did I say great work horse. I have the iPad mini with retina display but without a jailbreak the iPad is really handcuffed. Like the ability to be able to plug anything into the ports and use a mouse or anything. Great set up.
