Shadow lands

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is only the second Windows RT tablet released in 2013 -- the Surface 2 is the other -- so if you're looking for a new Windows tablet with free Office, there aren't many to choose from.

All red

Rear cam in action

The rear camera isn't all it could be. Sure, it has autofocus, but there's definitely room for a sharper image and more accurate color.

Not very thin

The 2520 isn't the thinnest tablet on the block. In fact it's just as thick as the Surface 2. The Surface 2, however, can get away with its extra mass by including a built-in kickstand. No kickstand on the Lumia.
