Nokia Gets Into The Tablet Business

If you, like me, have always associated Nokia with phones and that’s about it, you are in for a treat. HMD will be releasing their first tablet under Nokia.

The T20 is perfect for the current work from anywhere lifestyle. It turns out the last time tablets were this hot was back in 2014. Which, incidentally, is exactly when Nokia launched their N1 Android tablet. A 10.4-inch tablet 2K display, its pricing is set at $249.99 in the US where it will be available from 15 November. It is already available in the UK for 199 Euros. It comes in two versions; one with Wi-Fi only support, and the other with 4G. The latter costs 239 euros.

It will take you through about 7 hour-long conference calls, 15 hours of web surfing, 10 hours of fil watching and comes with 4GB RAM with 64GB storage which expands with a microSD card. Powered by an 8,200mAh battery, it is intended to last you a full day’s work – or study, and then some. Charging is done over USB-C with a 15W adapter. But the retail package comes with a 10W charger. Parents would be happy to know that the T20 comes with a Google Kids Space setting and Family Link, a system that introduces parental controls.

With that much battery power, it beats all the other students in class. It comes with the promise of two upgrades and three years of security updates.

This, it has been hinted, is the first of a series. HMD is looking at business clients and the average person who needs connectivity with longevity, which is everyone.

It is expected that the T20 will attract Android users.
