Nokia announced the saving grace of Windows RT back in late 2013, the Lumia 2520. It looked like a big Lumia smartphone with a candy red back and well built design, along with some impressive internals specs.

The main issues on the Nokia Lumia 2520 were Windows RT and the lack of accessories at launch. The Power Keyboard was delayed and we are finally seeing it come into stock at AT&T and Verizon Wireless in the United States.

The Nokia Power Keyboard is as expected, a full keyboard with chiclet keys and a trackpad. It also has USB 2.0 ports and a 2027mAh battery inside, giving an extra few hours of battery life onto the tablet. This could pump the battery life beyond 12 hours, although we wouldn’t bet on it.

Nokia has also added a wraparound cover onto the keyboard, which doubles up as a stand when typing out on a table.

This does make the Nokia Lumia 2520 a more inviting tablet for work heavy users, who want to be productive with the piece of tech. Windows RT will still be a burden compared to a Windows 8 tablet, but some people may find use with the mobile interface.

Both carriers will be stocking the Nokia Power Keyboard in black and will offer it out for $149. It is a rather expensive accessory, pumping the price of the whole unit to above $600, more than an iPad or mid-range Windows 8 hybrid computer.

Manufacturers have already labelled Windows RT as nothing more than a waste of time, ASUS said they would not be developing any tablets running the OS and Samsung, HP, Lenovo and others have shown no interest in developing tablets running RT.
