We have a quick heads-up for you now showing what general performance is like and whether it can stand up to the likes of Apple’s iPad and the best Android tablets out there.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a gorgeous tablet to look at. It has everything you want, including a stylish keyboard add-on which we took a look at in a previous report here. Now we switch our attention to gaming and whether the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and Adreno 330 graphics system can deliver the goods.

In actual fact, it looks like it’s not the Lumia 2520 hardware at fault, but the fact that there simply isn’t enough apps and games to take advantage of.

It was considered to be the greatest risk for anyone picking up a Windows 8.1 RT tablet, especially since the Lumia 2520 doesn’t have the ability to run full PC apps like the full version of Windows 8.1 does.
