The Nokia Lumia 2520 is quite a unique specimen; the very first tablet to ever be made by the soon-to-be-acquired handset division of Nokia. The tablet runs Windows RT, making it quite similar to Microsoft’s own Surface 2 tablet. Both devices work quite well as tablets alone, but where they really excel (and where both companies have invested considerable design talent) is as extremely slim, detachable laptops.
That form factor and functionality is provided by these tablets’ keyboard covers; for Microsoft we have the Touch Cover and the Type Cover, and for Nokia we have the object of this very article, the Nokia Power Keyboard.
The Power Keyboard, as the name suggests, provides a full keyboard and trackpad to the Lumia 2520. It also serves as a stand, keeping the 2520 in a convenient angled position. This makes it much easier to be productive; you can write emails, code and even articles like the very one you’re reading now. Windows RT’s unique ability to display two items on-screen at once and the inclusion of Microsoft Office free with every tablet, grants a kind of productivity can’t be matched on iOS and Android. If you’ve chosen a Windows tablet for those reasons, then it makes sense to follow them to their logical conclusion with the Power Keyboard.
Of course, there’s another word in this product’s name besides “keyboard”, which is “power”. This refers to the battery integrated into the cover, which adds 50% more longevity to the Lumia 2520. There’s even a couple of USB ports integrated, allowing you to charge your phone or connect external devices easily. That lets you keep writing, playing and consuming longer, another strength of the Windows platform and one that you should exploit.
