Tag - Lumia 2520
Nokia has stopped sales of the Lumia 2520 in Europe, over a faulty charger supplied with the tablet. The manufacturer has also issued a product advisory warning over the AC-300 charger, with owners in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom "strongly advised to suspend use of the charger until further notice."
Nokia will be expanding the availability of its HERE Maps to all Windows 8.1 devices, the company has confirmed. The free app, currently only available on the Nokia Lumia 2520, will soon be useable on all laptops, desktops, and tablets running Windows 8.1 or Windows RT, with the company also claiming the software will have a number of updates to improve performance.
Nokia is back to comparing its wares against Apple's, this time touting the outdoor visibility of the screen on its Lumia 2520 tablet against that of Apple's iPad. A new, animated commercial from the Finnish manufacturer also talks up the potential productivity of the Windows RT tablet versus Apple's offering and other tablets. It it the most recent commercial from Nokia, and the second of the last three to make a comparison to the iPad while touting the Lumia 2520.
It's apparently "business up front, party in the back" for Nokia's new Lumia 2520, as a new commercial from the Finnish hardware maker compares the tablet to a mullet. The spot for the company's Windows RT-powered device spends more time focusing on haircuts and filthy fingernails than it does Nokia's actual tablet. The goal of the app may be to highlight the 2520's capabilities as both a productivity and entertainment device, but its reception in the tech media so far has been marked by puzzlement.
More details for Nokia's rumored 8.3-inch tablet have surfaced, suggesting that the Lumia 2020 will ship with a 1080p-resolution IPS display. The device, a smaller form of the Lumia 2520 tablet, was spotted alongside its larger stablemate on import entries to India, which if true would see both tablets aiming to be released in the country in the future.
Nokia's newly released Lumia 2520 tablet appears to suffer from a screen malfunction that causes it to become inoperable until reset. The issue emerged this week in a Nokia device support forum, with several commenters saying the displays on their just-bought devices will not wake from sleep mode. The issue, when it occurs, does not resolve itself until the device is reset.
Even as its mobile division gets swallowed by Microsoft, Finnish manufacturer Nokia has released a new tablet, the Lumia 2520. The new device makes Nokia one of the few manufacturers still supporting Microsoft's struggling tablet platform, with the other being Microsoft itself. We've gotten our hands on Nokia's new tablet, and have formed a few initial impressions on the Lumia 2520.
Nokia is pulling no punches in its first ad for the recently released Lumia 2520, taking direct aim at Apple's new iPad Air. The Finnish firm, which recently sold its hardware arm to Microsoft, pokes fun at Apple's thin and light tablet in a new video ad before touting the Lumia 2520's capabilities as a productivity device. The new Windows RT tablet, Nokia says, also bests the iPad Air in a number of other features, including battery life.
Nokia could be planning to release a smaller Windows RT tablet in the coming months, one that would in theory compliment its current 10.1-inch Lumia 2520, according to a new rumor. The Lumia 2020, thought to be the eight-inch "Illusionist" tablet that surfaced earlier this month, could be heading to market in the first quarter of 2014.
Nokia's Lumia 2520 tablet will land on Verizon on November 21, according to a post from the United States' largest carrier. The Windows RT-powered tablet, Nokia's first entry in the segment, will be available to Verizon customers for $500, and the carrier will not require a wireless contract for that price. Verizon is also getting a special red edition of the device for customers buying it online. Customers buying it in stores will only have access to a black version.

Google Paris HQ raided by investigators
Google's Paris headquarters has been raided by dozens of French police. The Tuesday raid was part of an ongoing investigation into possible tax-avoidance practices, stoked by widespread dissatisfaction with the way multinationals like Google are structuring their business operations. Although trading in many countries around the globe, Google reports its international sales only in tax-friendly Ireland, similar to a practice adopted by Apple. According to French law, if it completes any of its sales contracts in France and not Ireland alone, it could be in breach of its laws. Google, for its part, denies any wrongdoing, and said that it is fully compliant with French law. http://reut.rs/1Udk2T9
