Nokia Sirius tablet to be called 'Lumia 2520' when it hits the market

Even with an impending acquisition by Microsoft, Nokia is rumoured to be launching its first Windows RT tablet in the near future. In leaks over the past few months, the 10.1-inch tablet's codename has been Nokia Sirius, but now we have reason to believe it will stick to a traditional Lumia name when it launches. 

According to EvLeaks, Nokia will dub its tablet the "Lumia 2520" - sticking with the numbered Lumia name that it uses for smartphones. We never know exactly why Nokia chooses the numbers it does, so we're just left to speculate. Maybe the numbers just sound catchy? 

EvLeaks doesn't provide any details beyond the name, but thanks to a bevy of leaks, we know just about everything we need to about the Lumia 2520. Several reports have noted it will be competitive in price to Apple's iPad-line. With an ARM-based CPU and Qualcomm Adreno 330 GPU included, we suspect a Snapdragon 800 processor is at its heart.

A 10.1-inch screen that packs a 1371 x 771 resolution that will deliver a meagre 156ppi has been tipped in specification leaks. Further rumoured specs include brightness that's ideal for the outdoors, 10 hours of battery life, LTE, 32GB of storage, a micro HDMI connector and a micro USB port. 

With the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone tipped to be announced in late October, we'd hope the Lumia 2520 makes an appearance at the event or follows shortly after. We'll make sure to keep an eye out over at our Nokia hub.
