Microsoft has announced that the Nokia Lumia 2520 – the first tablet from the formerly-independent Finnish phone maker – will be coming to Australia tomorrow, exclusively with Telstra.

Telstra will be selling the device from its online store, before rolling it out to its stores nationally from May 13. Customers can purchase the device on a 24-month contract under its $35 plan with a $25 monthly handset repayment fee. If you don’t want to go on a plan, you can purchase the tablet outright for $840.

The Power Keyboard accessory will cost $240. However, if you are getting a plan with Telstra and want the keyboard, then you have the option to add an additional $10 monthly fee to acquire it.

The Lumia 2520 runs on Windows RT 8.1, and will come preloaded with Office and Nokia’s own applications such as HERE Maps and Nokia Video Director. Hardware specs include a 10.1-inch HD display with Gorilla Glass 2, a 2.2GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage with microSD card support.

It also includes a 6.7-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, plus NFC and 4G connectivity.

No word when (or if) the tablet will be sold elsewhere.
