Nokia Lumia 2520: ready for work

With a full HD screen measuring 10.1-inches and powered by Windows RT 8.1, the Nokia Lumia 2520 is the perfect tool for the job. Your job, that is.


Many of us need to use a laptop or a computer in our daily lives to speed up our work processes and simplify our tasks.

But what if you could do all that work on a smaller, lighter and, dare I say it, ‘sexier’ device? Imagine the possibilities. Actually, there’s no need to imagine, read on to understand the benefits of owning a Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.

Make a stand

The Nokia Lumia 2520 can be used flat on any surface, or held in one hand while you type away with the other.

However, accessorise your tablet with the Nokia Power Keyboard to not only enable your Lumia 2520 to stand upright on your lap or a table, but also add a whole host of other functions.

The Nokia Power Keyboard provides you with a keyboard, a trackpad, up to an additional five hours of battery life, two additional full-sized USB ports, and beautiful wraparound protection to keep your Lumia 2520 looking shiny and new for longer.

Travel light and stay connected

If you’re required to carry around a laptop everyday you’ll be familiar with the extra weight that burdens your shoulders or back. And because of this weighty laptop, you’ll probably also be using a fairly substantial rucksack or bag to carry it in = extra weight.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 only weighs 615g, which is barely noticeable and perfect for slipping into a small bag. If you opt for the Power Keyboard, you may not even need the bag, as the keyboard wraps the tablet safely in transit and can be carried like a folio.

The Lumia 2520 comes with built-in LTE ensuring lighting fast communications wherever you are – another weight off your shoulders.

Microsoft Office 2013 RT (and Microsoft Outlook RT)

You’re undoubtedly familiar with it already. Microsoft Office has been the lynchpin of many a workforce for years and the 2013 RT version comes preinstalled on the Nokia Lumia 2520.  If you’re using it for business though, you’ll need to get a licence. Most likely you’re already covered, if you have commercial licence for Microsoft Office on your work PC.

You already know how to create Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations for anything from a simple budget to something to be shared at important meetings.

Microsoft Outlook is also integrated for a full-on professional email experience.

The same, albeit new and improved, tools you’ve used for years are again at your fingertips for you to carry on your business as usual. There’s no steep learning curve needed here.

Present via HDMI

Once you’ve created your presentation using Microsoft Office 2013 RT, take your tablet along with you to your meeting and plug it into the TV using the micro HDMI port to share directly. You can also use DLNA for a wireless experience with a suitable screen or projector.

Again, it’s all about simplicity and travelling light.


Apps, working side by side

Being able to open one app and have it sit open next to another app is amazingly useful. For instance, you could be writing something using Microsoft Word but need to reference information found on a website.

You could also make a Skype call on one side of the screen and make notes using OneNote on the other.

How about using Adobe Photoshop Express on one side to enhance your photos while checking the weather forecast with WeatherFlow?

Have the two placed beside each other by dragging the app to the sides of the screen. All the resizing is done for you.

Plenty of memory

In terms of RAM, the ‘operational memory’ on a mobile device, the Lumia 2520 has 2GB of it. This makes every action super-slick. However, if it’s storage you’re after, you’ve got plenty available here.

There’s 32GB available internally with additional support up to 32GB if you pop in a micro SD card. That’s 64GB! If that’s not enough, don’t forget you can also plug into the cloud for more storage via SkyDrive. A handy 7GB of space comes for free just for registering an account.

Incidentally, anything you save to SkyDrive can be accessed from your phone or any Web browser with an Internet connection.
