iPad Air vs Nokia Lumia 2520 in buying choice

#

It was a busy day in the mobile world yesterday with a whole host of new products getting launched from Nokia and Apple, which included some nice new tablet PC devices and today we are looking at the iPad Air vs. Nokia Lumia 2520 in a buying choice.

We first saw Finnish company Nokia launch its first tablet PC device while later in the day Apple as expected launched some new iPad’s that included the iPad Air, but how do they compare?

Display
The new Nokia has a 10.1-inch Full HD display with a 218ppi pixel density that is protected by Gorilla Glass 2, while the iPad Air has a 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 resolution display with 264ppi.

Processor
Apple has provided the iPad Air with the 64-bit A7 dual core processor clocked at 1.3GHz while the Nokia Lumia 2520 uses the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz.

Ram & Storage
Nokia has supplied 2GB of RAM along with 32GB of on board storage that is expandable further via microSD card, while the new iPad will come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options while the amount of RAM it features hasn’t been revealed so far by the company.

Cameras
On the Nokia we have 6.7-megapixel rear facing unit that is capable of Full HD video capture at 30fps, while around the front is a 2-megapixel shooter that offers 720p video recording at 30fps. The new iPad has a 5-megapixel rear camera on the back and around the front we have a HD FaceTime snapper.

Dimensions & Weight
The iPad Air measures in at 240mm x 169.5mm x 7.5mm weighing only 469 grams for the Wi-Fi only model, while the Nokia comes in at 267mm x 168mm x 8.9 mm weighing 615 grams.

Operating System
On the Nokia is the Windows RT 8.1 operating system while the iPad Air is listed to be coming with iOS 7.0.2 but Apple has just released iOS 7.0.3 so you would have thought it would come with this.

Both devices are down to be available during the fourth quarter and start at $499 but it will be mainly down to what operating system that is required that will determine which device many will purchase.

Will you be buying either one of these devices?

    You forgot one thing regarding the Lumia, it has LTE as a standard feature, while it is an expensive option with the Air.
