Of course, he’ll need a tablet for all of these cool apps. Why not get him a Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet? Head over to your local Microsoft Store and pick one up- knowing how helpful the folks are there, I’m sure they would be happy to help you load some of these apps onto the tablet before you leave so he can turn it on and play right away!

This tablet has it all- Create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on the go. Synch your email and calendars with Outlook. And with up to 64GB of expandable memory and OneDrive, you can save your documents and pick up where you left off whenever you want. As you can see from the picture above, the profile of the Lumia 2520 is teeny tiny.  Not a lot of extra weight for him to tote around when he’s travelling or commuting to work (or the playground).

 

The Nokia Lumia 2520 with high-res Full HD display is crisp and clear even in bright sunlight. So you can see whatever you’re working on, wherever you’re working, indoors or outside.

Snap on the Nokia Power Keyboard and let your fingers do the talking. With up to five hours of extra battery life, a touch pad and two full-sized USB ports, getting things done on the move has never been easier.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 can store an 80% charge in just one hour, leaving you 100% free to unplug and do your thing.

 

One reader will win a Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet!
