  • Known as the Lumia 2520, Nokia's first tablet also broke cover at the Abu Dhabi event.

    It's a 10.1-inch slate, powered by Windows 8.1 RT, powered by a 2.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip. 

    There's battery life of around 10 hours, according to Nokia, and 32GB of storage.

  • As well as updating its Windows Phone powered Lumia range, Nokia also added some new Asha handsets to its lower-end lineup.

    Among there were the Asha 500, Nokia's cheapest touchscreen to date. The three-inch display handset is a 2G device, with a two-megapixel camera.

    There's a bump up in specs with the 502 (pictured above) a dual SIM handset with a five-megapixel snapper with a flash.

    Like the 500, the 502 has what Nokia calls the 'ice design' – a clear Perspex outer shell.

  • The 503 replaces the 501 as the Asha range's flagship device. The 3.5G handset has wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a Gorilla Glass screen.

  • Nokia at full steam

    Very well done.
    With the 1320 we can talk about the "budget" phablet - I just wonder about the weight of these new large smartphones - 209g for 1520 and 220g for the 1320!! It's insane to me.
    Nokia is using Samsung tactics - cover every single smarthpone target with devices that are designed as a "family".
    Their tablet looks a lot better than Microsoft's surfaces, while I doubt sales to hit any records, I wouldn't be surprised if they outsell all other RT surfaces.

    Unfortunately for Nokia (or is it for Microsoft) Windows is still running behind competition, I believe Q3 sales of Nokia smartphones will grow at the same rate of smartphone global market (sales between 8 and 8.5M Lumias), basically maintaining market share. Microsoft should heavily revise Windows OS (WP and all) or it will stay around 5% share for long time.
