    Not just undecided, but frustratingly undecided ;) I'm thinking availability will be the deciding factor for me. I'm not very patient, and I haven't heard a peep about when the 2520 will be released. I'm probably headed to the MS store this weekend to splurge on a 64gb S2 and TC2.

    For me:

    S2 Pros: Memory, durability, kick stand, touch cover
    S2 Cons: More industrial than beautiful

    2520 Pros: Gorgeous hardware, Nokia apps
    2520 Con: 64gb max even with SD card; the cover looks nice, but seems a bit bulky and clunky

    The Nokia looks nice but for me at least the S2 looks better and the main reasons are: USB 3.0 port / touch-type covers / Kick Stand / Better Materials /.

    Yes.

    Picked up a Surface 2 yesterday for my wife. I am surprised and a little shocked as a former skeptic just how good RT is as a mobile OS although I wish the apps were in at least as good of shape as the WP8 OS. I expect that to change quickly with the explosion of 8 inch pro devices. My points of reference were ipad and Kindle Fire HD .

    I will buy a 2520 on its release date if I can get it unlocked and run on T Mo's LTE.

    Fact of the matter is, whatever you decide, it's still a win for RT. The more people buy either one of these devices, the more likely developers will take notice. Personally, I'm going for the 2520.

    Order myself a Surface 2 I prefer the design and magnesium body over the 2520 plastic body.

    And of course for storage and the USB 3.0 port.

    I prefer the design of the 2520 over the Surface 2. Nokia just makes awesome looking devices.

    I love the look of the Nokia, buy after using the S2 for a week, I'm probably sticking with it. What's keeping me is the flexibility of the form factor. It appears that using the Nokia as strictly a tablet requires removing the case. Watching a movie with it standing up requires the keyboard to be extended. All of those use cases (which are mine) can be achieved with minimal fuss on the S2.

    I'd really like to get a red Lumia 2520 in the states unlocked to be used on T-mobiles LTE/4G/3G bands. Does any one know how? It seems like AT&T and Verizon stole the show by having it as carrier exclusives. Sigh...

    I'm leaning towards the Surface 2. But I am VERY impressed with the 2520.

    Surface 2:
    Pros - Kick stand, better form factor when you take keyboard covers into account, better front facing camera, cheaper than 2520, bigger screen, 200 GB SkyDrive storage and some Skype promotion.
    Cons - only one color (yes I'm considering this a con lol), no Nokia apps (yet) keyboard cover isn't that protective.

    Nokia Lumia 2520:
    Pros - Great design, gorgeous screen quality, case provides protection and extended battery life, Nokia apps, better camera.
    Cons: case seems cumbersome, only one stand position, availability in US only offers black/red via carriers, and it's more expensive than the Surface 2.

    I have a feeling that Nokia's tablet will have better audio quality as well. But I'm going with the Surface 2 because it's more affordable and I really like the form factor compared to the 2520. Plus, I'm not on AT&T or Verizon and even if I was they're only offering black/glossy red.
