Nokia is planning to compete against the likes of Samsung and Apple in the Indian tablet market. This can be said as the Finnish giant might have squashed rumors to bring the Lumia 2520 in India any time soon, but now it seems that company could announce the device sooner than expected.
Yes, the 10.1-inch Windows RT running tablet is expected to be launched in India later this month, if one asked to believe at the listing on Homeshop18. GizBot spotted first that the fabled device on Homeshop18 has been listed under 'forthcoming' devices. Reportedly the high-end tablet is expected to be made available in India around fourth week of January 2014.
Nokia hasn't made any official announcements whether the company plans to introduce the device in India soon, hence take this piece of information as a pinch of salt.
Nokia Lumia 2520 - A Big Threat To Apple iPad Air?
The Lumia 2520 features a gorgeous 10.1-inch IPS LCD display having Full HD resolution. Under the hood, the tablet device comes with a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU along with 2GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The makers also added an 8,000mAh battery. There's a 6.7MP f/1.9 camera on the back, and a 2MP shooter on the front. Nokia could announce the device with 3G connectvity, according to the listing found on Homeshop18.
Till now India has not seen the debut of first and second generation Surface tablets in the Indian market. But looks like Nokia might finally bring the Windows RT tablet range in India very soon.
So logically speaking Nokia won't be facing tough competition at all. Besides all, Microsoft would also like Nokia to become more aggressive when it comes to promotion of Windows RT OS. Nokia, being a brand to reckon with, could do wonders if the Lumia 2520 would be promoted on a grand scale like any other high-end product.
For instance, the Lumia 1520: a 6-inch FHD quad-core phablet sells out in India within few days of launch. Keeping the popularity of Nokia's most expensive smartphone in India, we can expect same hype around the upcoming Lumia 2520.
