The retailer, which will stock the Lumia 2520 from December 4, will have exclusivity on the product until the end of February
Nokia’s first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520, will go on sale exclusively at John Lewis from December 4, the manufacturer announced today (November 28).
The Lumia 2520, which has a 10.1-inch HD display, 11 hours of battery like and 4G connectivity, will cost £399.99 and come with a two-year guarantee from the retailer.
Features also include a 6.7 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front-facing camera, as well as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor.
When bought from John Lewis’s Oxford Street store in the first few days after launch customers will receive the option to have the device engraved for free.
John Lewis junior buyer for tablets and telecoms Harry Boughton said: “We have seen a continuing demand for tablets, selling one every 15 seconds, and we think the addition of this tablet to our range will appeal to customers looking to do more than surf the web.
“It comes with the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system and Microsoft Office is pre-installed, making it ideal for customers who use Excel, Word, PowerPoint or Outlook. It is also 4G enabled so customers can use super-fast mobile broadband to always stay connected.”
