The Nokia Lumia 2520, a tablet that's rich on features, including a 10.1”, bright, full HD display, 4G LTE connectivity, super-fast charging, five hours of extra battery life, a touch pad and two full-sized USB ports is set to land in stores on May 18th in Australia. It has already landed in other parts of the world, but Australians can also place their orders online starting tomorrow. It will be sold exclusively by Telstra.
Telstra has priced the Tablet which will be available on a 24 month contract or outright for $840. This is much more when compared to the price in USA, which is $499. Regarding pricing, Telstra sent out a press release with the details
Customers can purchase the Nokia Lumia 2520 on a $35 Telstra Tablet Plan, plus $25 per month device repayment when they stay connected for 24 months, which includes 4GB of data ($0.85c/MB) for use in Australia ($60/month - minimum cost over 24 months is $1,440).
Business customers can purchase the Nokia Lumia 2520 on a $35 Telstra Mobile Broadband Business Member Plan, plus $25 per month device repayment when they stay connected for 24 months, which includes 4GB of data ($0.85c/MB) for use in Australia (minimum is $1,440 ($60/month).
Telstra customers can also add the Nokia Power Keyboard for $10 per month with an Accessory Payment Option (min cost over 24 months $240).
Pricing can be a big issue for most people, but apparently, $60/AU a month with 4 Gb of included data on a 24 month contract seems fine.
A bit under half of Australian small businesses, have most of their customers located more than 20 kilometres away. There’s huge demand to be able to work more flexibly on the go and at customer premises. With the Lumia 2520 connected to 4G, owners can work with ease and stay on top of emails as well as edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.
That's according to Andrew Volard, the telco’s director of product devices.
