After the less-than-stellar debut of Windows RT last year, the subsequent cancellation of Samsung's Windows RT tablet, and Microsoft's $900 million Surface RT write-down, I honestly didn't expect another RT tablet from anyone other than Microsoft to be released, ever. However, earlier this week, Nokia announced its first Windows RT tablet, the Lumia 2520.
Its announcement comes right on the heels of the Surface 2's release, so what better time to compare the merits of each. And while I haven't actually seen the 2520 in person, CNET has. Also, after reading our First Take, speaking to my colleague Sarah Mitroff -- who did see it in person -- and looking closely at the specs, I feel I have a pretty good idea of what to expect.
