Nokia Lumia 2520 - Product - Image

Verizon announced on Monday that it will begin selling Nokia's brand new Lumia 2520 Windows RT 8.1 tablet starting on Thursday, Nov. 21. The device will cost $499.99 off contract, but customers can pick it up for $399.99 for a limited time with a new two-year contract. AT&T's version of the tablet will launch a day later, on Nov. 22, but will also be available through a Windows Phone package. If you buy a Windows Phone from AT&T, you can pick up the Lumia 2520 on contract for just $199.

We brought you an early Lumia 2520 hands-on from Abu Dhabi, where it was announced, but as a refresher it has a 10.1-inch screen, 4G LTE support, a 6.7-megapixel camera, 32GB of storage that's expandable with a microSD card slot, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, NFC, 2GB of RAM, USB 3.0 and more. Verizon will also sell the super attractive glossy red model, which AT&T won't carry at launch.

We haven't been huge fans of Windows RT in the past, though Windows RT 8.1 adds some worthwhile new features. The platform still lacks a lot of applications, however, but thankfully Nokia has done its part to add HERE Maps, Nokia Storyteller and more. We'll be bringing you full coverage of the tablet as soon as we get one in our hands.
