The Nokia Lumia 2520.   (Nokia)

(Newser) – With Apple preparing for its (possibly iPad-themed) event in San Francisco today, Nokia is making some noise of its own over in Abu Dhabi. The device maker has added several new gadgets to its lineup, including a Windows tablet and a big-screen phone, or phablet. The new Lumia 1520 phone boasts a 6-inch screen, making it slightly bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Note III, and it offers a 1080p display. Now you'll be able to fit three rows of tiles on the screen; the standard had been two, TechHive notes. The device will go for $749 without taxes or subsidies, USA Today reports.

Then there's the Lumia 2520 tablet with Windows RT 8.1. It's also got a 1080p display, this one 10.1 inches, and it also can be 80% charged in an hour. The 2520, according to Nokia, is the only tablet out there with true offline maps via the integrated HERE app. It's set to cost $499 on AT&T later this year.

This was much expected tab from Nokia, To stay in the Mobile/Tab industry this Lumia 2520 Tab plays a major role for Nokia and Microsoft. Apple's iOS and Google's Android is already in a better position, and to compete with them Nokia or Microsoft need a awesome products. In this tab configuration is looks great it has 6.7 MP camera and high speed processor... This is another good sign of merging Nokia into Microsoft. http:// www.boston-technology.com/ios-development.html

Dell has a new 8" tablet running real Windows 8.1, it is about the size of the iPad mini and pretty sexy. It comes with real Office, and will run regular Windows apps as well as those from the store. This new Lenovo is running Windows RT. That may be fine for some people, but for me... the lack of ability to run regular windows apps, and how totally locked down it is kind of kills it. Toshiba and Lenovo also both have some nice looking Windows 8" tablets just out. In 1 minute Apple will announce the new iPads, I'm hoping the new iPad mini is retina. The iPad mini is great for everything except browsing the web.
