Nokia has been making mobile devices for quite some time now. The company is credited for making camera phones a rage amongst the younger crowd. Now the Finnish giant is preparing to rewrite a new chapter in the history that will eventually change the way we consume content.
This is not a dream anymore, as Nokia will most likely announce its first ever tablet device at the Nokia World event. The company, in association with Microsoft, are ready to enthrall users with a tablet device. We've been hearing about Nokia branded tablet for the past few months.
Dubbed as Nokia Sirius, it will have a fast quad-core processor powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC. Yes, there are a large number of tablets available in the market. But what's unique about Nokia's new slate? Reportedly, Nokia will announce exclusive apps tailored made for Nokia Lumia 2520. Back in April 2013, a developer had mentioned that Nokia's upcoming tablet will have an access to exclusive apps like Adidas micoach.
This is just the beginning, as Nokia is building more exclusive apps for the Lumia 1520. The Story teller app is another app that's going to be announced on October 22. Apart from the apps, the Nokia Lumia 2520 is expected to run Windows RT OS. There are more chances to see the Nokia Lumia 2520 running Windows RT OS rather than Windows 8 OS.
The Lumia 2520, according to Paul Thurrott and Tom Warren from the Verge, will feature a 10.1-inch FHD display having resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The purported device will look similar to Nokia Lumia phones. The Lumia 2520 will be crafted from high-quality polycarbonate plastic. Just like any other Lumia smartphone, the tablet will be made available in Black, White, Red and Cyan.
Being manufactured by Nokia, it is natural to expect a sophisticated camera module to be placed on the rear back. According to new reports, a 6.7-megapixel rear facing PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a 2-megapixel camera on the front, is what you should expect from the Lumia 2520.
To be priced at $499 (Rs 30,456), Nokia will try to compete with the iPad 5, a forthcoming tablet from Apple. The exact pricing is unknown at the moment but multiple reports are in favor of $499 price tag, at least in the US market.

10.1-inch FHD tablet – A threat to iPad 5
For the first time Nokia will try to show its power by announcing a tablet device. There are already plenty of tablet makers in the crowd, it is be seen what new Nokia will bring with its first ever tablet. The Lumia 2520 would have a 10.1-inch IPS display having resolution of 1920 x 1080. There aren't many 10.1-inch FHD tablets in the market.

Nokia may add a keyboard accessory to make the device multi-functional. Described as "Innovative multi-function cover with a keyboard and additional battery life", it will have a similar keyboard, as seen in the Surface range of tablets but with an added battery. The device will weigh 590 grams, as per the leaked report.
Long Battery life
The 10.1-inch tablet will have a long battery life, enough to give you a backup of at least 10 hours. On an average, a tablet have a battery life of anywhere between 6-8 hours. If Nokia managed to deliver 10 hours of battery life, then this tablet could make ripples in the market.
We haven't seen a tablet having exclusive apps on the board. Nokia is rumored to be making exclusive apps for the much anticipated Lumia 2520. A report was surfaced in April, stating that a developer had designed a proposal for an exclusive Nokia Tablet app.
Excerpts from his blog "Helped design and concept the Adidas micoach app proposal for the Nokia Tablet.
