"Now more than ever, mobile devices are at the center of consumers' lives as they look to capture, curate and share experiences on the go," said Stephen Elop, Executive Vice President, Devices & Services at Nokia. "Today we're inviting people around the world to switch to Nokia.

I recently collaborated with Nokia to test and review their electronic products. My primary goal for this review is to test Nokia’s first ever Windows tablet – the Lumia 2520 by answering the following question: Is the Nokia 2520 user friendly through its adaptable applications and user experiences?

Did you know? Nokia's first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520, is designed to work anywhere, with a vivid 10.1-inch HD display that is designed to provide the best outdoor and indoor readability of any tablet. Talk about a win; win situation for electronic consumers everywhere.

Check out my list of the top 10 coolest user features offered for the Nokia Lumia 2520:

  1. Constructed off Nokia’s well-built mobility heritage, intended to work anywhere, Nokia's first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520 offers combined fast 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity. Talk about wonderful Wi-Fi the perfect alternative to accessing the Internet from your tablet device without the data connection provided by a cell phone carrier.
  2. You should know, the Lumia 2520 runs on Windows RT 8.1 for an easy to navigate personal experience, plus enjoy fast-charging capability - offering up to a 100% charge in approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. Talk about the perfect level of productivity with Microsoft Office and Outlook preinstalled, including my favorite software PowerPoint which is perfect for students and young professionals, making on the go more easier than ever. I kinda enjoy the new Windows 8 operating system.
  3. The Lumia 2520 offers a 6.7MP camera, and for the first time ever on a tablet, ZEISS optics, envision taking beautiful pictures - especially in low lighting. Talk about Instagram for Windows devices will wide open lens. Be sure to check out Pass It On, a social photography experience self-explanatory via Twitter hash feed #PassItOn.
  4. The Lumia 2520 also comes with a number of unique software experiences that are exclusive to the Lumia family, including the exclusive "Dragons Adventure" interactive game developed in partnership with DreamWorks Animation. Talk about family fun based on the feature film, ‘How to Train Your Dragon.’
  5. The Lumia 2520 includes Nokia Storyteller, a Nokia developed application that introduces a new way to curate and relive images and videos as a story on a map. Talk about creating your own timeline, a digital photographic diary that clusters all your cinema graphs, photos and videos into individual events called ‘stories.’
  6. Nokia Video Director, which offers the ability to edit and get even more creative with videos shot on the Lumia 2520 - as well as content from Lumia smartphones. Talk about cinematic editing on the go with video templates to help you select suitable footage to make a dynamic video.
  7. With integrated HERE Maps, the Lumia 2520 is the only tablet with true offline maps for a fast and reliable mapping experience. Talk about maps that show you the smartest way across town, look forward to offline maps in 95 countries.
  8. The tablet also includes an exclusive version of Nokia Music with Mix Radio pre-installed. Talk about streaming ad-free music. You can also listen to pre-selected playlists from your favorite music artists.
  9. The Nokia Lumia 2520 is available in multiple color choices to include red and white in a glossy finish as well as cyan and black in a matte finish, priced at $499 before taxes or subsidies here. Talk about slim and slippery to the touch therefore, I would recommend the Nokia Power Keyboard as a great accessory.
  10. You should know, the Lumia 2520 pairs perfectly with a unique and stylish accessory which offers a great set of benefits: the Nokia Power Keyboard. The Nokia Power Keyboard is available alongside the Lumia 2520 at the recommended price of $149 here. A protective and wraparound cover, the Nokia Power Keyboard includes a fully functional keypad with gesture trackpad, so typing feels as natural as on a laptop. Talk about offering up to five extra hours of battery life and two built-in USB ports, the Nokia Power Keyboard makes battery life worries a thing of the past.

One minor innovation feature, I noticed was no need to purchase an additional sheet of material for glare protector because Nokia has solved the problem. An anti-glare screen protector is a shield for the screen of an electronic device to cut glare and protect it so the device user can use it more easily & comfortably.

I can personally tell you that; I have had trouble playing, reading, watching or likewise using the iPhone and iPad while caught out in direct sunlight. I was so impressed by the fact that; I could see the display on the Lumia 2520 no matter what angle I, held the tablet in direct sunlight.

One main innovative feature; I noticed which is helpful to Nokia Lumia 2520 end users like myself is the volume control button, other tablets I have tested such as the Apple iPad have such low volume control buttons that earphones are requested to fully enjoy those tablets. In my opinion, the noise volume on the Nokia Lumia 2520 rate superior with or without earphones.

I can personally tell you that my experience with Nokia Lumia 2520 proves that the device is very user friendly, educational and rewarding. Upon registration of the product from start to finish, you too as a new Nokia customer will enjoy the adaptable applications and user friendly experiences as listed above in my top ten cool features list.
