Cell Phone Maker Nokia Introduces First Tablet

European cell phone manufacturer Nokia (NYSE:NOK) has introduced its first ever tablet, called the T20, in a challenge to Apple’s iPad.

Nokia said the tablet, which runs on Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android operating system, comes with a 10.4-inch 2K display and promises up to 15 hours of usage on a fully charged battery. The tablet will also support 10 hours of video streaming on platforms such as YouTube and Netflix, according to Nokia.

The Nokia T20 starts at a price of $199 euros in Europe, ($249.99 U.S.). It comes in two versions: one with only Wi-Fi support and another with 4G connectivity. The latter costs a bit more, retailing at $239 euros.

In July, Nokia launched the XR20, a rugged smartphone designed to withstand intense environmental conditions. The company says the model has exceeded its expectations in terms of sales.

Now, Nokia is hoping to capitalize on growing demand for tablets after working from home and remote learning became the norm during the pandemic.

Beyond its long battery life and competitive price, the T20 tablet also comes with four years of monthly security updates and three years of Android upgrades.

Nokia is targeting business clients as well as consumers with the device and says the T20 is included in Android’s Enterprise Recommended scheme for businesses.

The company has not yet disclosed information on a release date and availability for the new tablet.
