News ByteNokia announced today that its first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520, will be available from AT&T starting Nov. 22. The 10-inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet will cost $400 with a two-year contract, or $200 if purchased with the Lumia 925, Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 smartphone. Introduced last month, the Lumia 2520 features Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity, a full-HD display that promises better outdoor readability and 32 gigabytes of internal memory, plus a microSD expansion slot. The tablet is also expected to be available from Verizon, but no word on pricing or release date yet.
News ByteBlackBerry Q10 will finally be able to get their hands on the physical-keyboard-equipped smartphone on Aug. 30. The cost is $200 with a two-year contract. The Q10 also offers a 3.1-inch touchscreen, international roaming and 4G LTE support. And while the Q10 has been available from AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile since June, Sprint is touting its unlimited smartphones plans as an advantage (natch). You can read more about the Q10 in Katie Boehret’s review here.
News Bytewireless news. AT&T just sent out a teaser email inviting us to “Get ready for what’s next in wireless” on July 16, and included a list of accolades for its 4G LTE network. While this won’t be an actual event, I expect the carrier will talk about its upcoming LTE-Advanced network. LTE-Advanced promises significantly faster data speeds (theoretical download speeds of three gigabits per second and 1.5Gbps up); AT&T is expected to roll out its service during the second half of 2013.
