    The lack of SDHC expansion is a deal-breaker for me.

    I think microsoft has reason to be worried about the nokia tablet. Its a beutiful iconic lumia design, has a portable formfactor and the specs are more featured packed than the surface 1 or 2. Hell, I don't even use the desktop much on my surface pro, so I can probably live with the "locked down" RT. Currently I would easily consider switching from my current surface pro to the nokia tablet for 95%. Two issues that are keeping me at bay is 1. a usb connection and 2. wacom stylus support (no, not ntrig or a capacative pen like on the ipad). If these issues could be adressed quickly within the current line up, this would make the tablet 100% for me. I wouldn't hesitate to switch down.

    I still'll buy a surface 2. It is a question of Plastic vs Magnesium. The materials matter much... at least for me.

    I'm not really sure, as I don't really know how it feels like using the RT OS, without desktop functionality. Kinda worries me, as this might be the aspect where Nokia might fail.

    I don't need a surface pro. You can get a laptop with much better specs and can be upgraded for the price. The RT can remote desktop if you need to use a desktop app. I would never consider a pro at that price

    It's more of a tablet...not a Laptop...so...RT makes alot of sense. You need to compare it to tablets, not desktops. It's like Apple with iOS on mobile and OSX on desk.

    Not really hard to understand.

    Plus Microsoft wants more windows 8 tablets on the market to increase development. So far it has been a flop.

    Complicated, the staff compares the RT with Windows 8 Pro, forget that the RT is geared precisely to Tablets and apps are increasing.

    I don't see anyone complaining that I can't install Windows applications on iOS, go figure.

    I'm sticking with the Surface 2 because I love that hardware design, but admittedly the value adds on the 2520 greatly surpass the S2.

    Ad-free Nokia Music
    HERE Maps
    Video Director Suite
    SmartCamera Interface
    Keyboard cover that adds 5 hours of battery life
    Better rear camera
    Multiple colors

    Surface 2:
    SkyDrive 200GB free for a year
    Skype Unlimited free for a year
    And um....?

    Not sure what else Microsoft is bringing to the table that could be considered "exclusive" to the Surface 2. Perhaps the new front facing camera, which is pretty amazing.

    I think the Surface 2 for me. I like the full size USB port, and the 64GB option. And the keyboard cover on the Nokia looks like it would add a lot of weight and size to the package (though I do like the 2 additional USB ports). Also, I really don't need LTE on a tablet because I would rather save the money and just use my phone when I need internet access when away from WiFi. The Nokia looks nice though.

    The RT and no Wifi is a bit of a bummer (at least till it gets the apps I need) but definitely a 2520. In Cyan.

    Has a preorder or release date been announced?

    I was trying to watch the live stream last night but my almost 5 year old Acer can no longer handle live streams in the CPU department.

    I didn't see any pre-order dates or release dates. I'm assuming before the end of this year.

    I thought it was cellular only? If the 2520 will be available with WiFi and not require that I get a data plan for it then I will very seriously consider this device.

    As someone who just got his Surface 2 in I am debating about returning this and waiting for either a LTE Surface 2 or the 2520. I just see tablets as something that require having at least the option of cellular connectivity. This surface is a extremely nice product though and I am really enjoying the experience with Windows 8 on a tablet.

    Looks like I'm getting 2520, mainly because it's thinner and has full spectrum of Nokia software. Doesn't mean that Surface 2 is inferior, just different.
