Meh, still pretty pants in regards to official apps, but there are alternatives for everything you can think of. Even VLC is coming soon. If you're happy just browsing the net, skyping or writing documents in Microsoft word, this does the job fine.

thanks, christmas gift for wife sorted, she doesn't need full Windows tablet, this one will do the job

ridiculous RRP - a product touted as being perfect for work and home should at least come with the necessary keyboard.

an additional £150 is a joke.

The keyboard was shocking i found, the touchpad was curled up both edges and sat at least 1cm off the desk. Went back for a refund.
The tablet itself was great, which was a shame.

compared against the dell venue 8 3g?

It is worth noting that Nokia provide a 2 year warranty in the UK for this tablet so the John Lewis advantage is reduced somewhat

The 2 years is for the tablet. Any accessories purchased for it are covered for 12 months

The 2 years is provided by Microsoft now apparently...

Voted hot for the price. However this is not a good tablet if you need a decent amount of storage or want to play games from the windows store. It has 32Gb and there is unfortunately no 64Gb model

Of course it is... it's supposed to be. If the keyboard was any cheaper no-one would buy the Surface!

Voted hot and I would love to own one, but as I already have a Surface RT I'm going to give it a miss.

Pop in a 128Gb micro SD card (I got one last time Amazon were doing them for £50 or so). Although Win RT would make me think twice.

It looks nice but I'd rather get one of the new Atom Baytrail tablets; I would not take too much notice of what MS says about RT upgrade path, they have killed whole eco-systems overnight before...

I'd avoid RT. You're really restricted to the windows store only and you'll run into problems with any site that needs flash or Silverlight to stream videos.

Looks like a nice device otherwise. the build quality on my Lumia phone is top notch too.

Here is the which review if you're thinking about buying:

Once a giant of the mobile phone market, Nokia is now searching for success in the tablets market with its Nokia Lumia 2520. This tablet runs the mobile version of Windows, which means you can use Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps. But does it offer sufficient battery stamina to keep you going all day? We subjected it to our challenging tests to find out.

This tablet combines a useful and versatile operating system with a decent screen and well-designed exterior. Overall this is a good bet for those looking for a portable device for both work and play.

What is it?
This is one of a rare breed of tablets that runs on the Windows RT operating system. It has a large 10.1-inch screen and a Sim- card slot for connecting to mobile broadband.

What's it like to use?
It looks slim and solid and it doesn't flex, which helps give it a quality feel. It also comes in a choice of vibrant colours - good for anyone bored by the traditional monochrome design of most tablets.

It runs on Windows RT, which is a cut-down mobile version of Windows. It is compatible with a host of productivity apps, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint. One benefit of Windows is that you can create multiple log-ins so that all the family can have their own account on the device.

It has a 2.15GHz processor that is beefy enough for browsing the web, chatting on Skype and streaming videos.

It has a 1,920x1,080-resolution screen. And while this means it doesn't quite cram in as many pixels as Apple's Retina display, it is still bright and sharp, with good colours. We also found that the touchscreen is speedy and accurate when reacting to touch commands.

As you'd expect with a Windows machine, it has a USB port so that you can easily transfer files to and from other devices. It's well-furnished with other connection ports, too - you'll find both an HDMI output and a micro-SD card slot for expanding the memory. And it's enabled with NFC - the same technology used for contactless card payments. This means that you only need to touch it to other compatible NFC devices (such as wireless speakers) to connect the two together.

It has a Sim-card slot, which gives you the option to connect to 3G mobile broadband when on the move.

What's the battery life like?
When you're in a rush and only have time for a half-hour charge, you'll get two hours and 20 minutes of battery life in return.

And if you start with a full tank, you'll get 10 hours of video playback or just over seven and a half hours of wi-fi web-browsing. This means you can keep going at work all day without reaching for the charger.

Is there anything I should watch out for?
Windows RT isn't compatible with full versions of Windows programs - so it won't work with all the same software that you use on your laptop or desktop PC.

It can be tricky to make onscreen selections when the tablet is in desktop mode. This is because the small icons aren't best suited to touchscreen devices and can be fiddly to interact with.

Should I buy it?
If you're looking for a tablet for both work and play, this is certainly worth considering. The processor and screen are both decent, and the casing design is slim and vibrant. However, if you can live without the familiarity of the Windows operating system, it is also worth taking a look at the similarly priced iPad Air before making your final decision.

Pros: Great design, Microsoft productivity apps, crisp screen

Cons: Desktop mode can be fiddly to operate, Windows RT not compatible with full Windows software

One problem you get with this tablet is that you cannot use Amazon Prime Instant Video since there is no app for it and the web site needs Silverlight (not available for Windrows RT).
