Audio/Video Formats Supported by Nokia Lumia 2520

Nokia Lumia 2520

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is the Finnish giant’s first – and possibly last – tablet. Announced back in October, collective eyebrows were raised when it was revealed that the device would run Windows RT, which has endured a miserable time since launching just over a year ago. Nokia Lumia 2520 is the new and first tablet running Windows RT 8.1 with 10.1 inch screen, 6.7 MP camera and super fast 4G. It is always compared to Microsoft Surface Pro 2. Outstandingly, it has external keyboard and built in free Microsoft Office to enable us to work on the go, truly an all-in-one Windows (8.1) pad.

The Microsoft Surface 2 has a front-facing camera rated at 3.5MP and is the sharpest, most colorful camera on the tablet thus far. The 5MP back camera only adds to the power of the Surface 2’s camera specs. The Lumia 2520 takes a different approach. It features a 2MP front camera and a 6.7MP back camera. This makes the Surface 2 having a better camera overall, possessing above average specs, while the 2520’s rear camera has an edge over the 5MP back camera of the Surface 2.

the Nokia Lumia 2520 has set the gold standard for tablets to aspire to when it comes to battery life, going the distance and powering up quickly when asked.
It also features a mighty impressive IPS display that, despite not being the highest resolution out there, is fantastic for reading outdoors and really brings Windows 8.1 RT’s vivid colors to life. Holding the tablet is a joy too, its curved dimensions smooth to touch without coming across as poorly constructed, even if it feels a little unevenly balanced at times.

It could be something of a killer games machine too – so long as you stick to the ones from the Windows RT 8.1 Store. Our benchmarks served up Surface 2-beating numbers, meaning there isn’t really any contest between the two if light gaming and battery life are at the top of your list. That decent performance extends to other areas of the tablet – anything you do from opening and switching between apps using the OS’s charm menus – is seamless and stutter free.

What are the audio and video formats playable and supported by this Windows tablet? Similar to WP8 supported video formats, Nokia Lumia 2520, the first Nokia tablet will support MP4 and H.264 video codecs. But you can also play videos like MKV, AVCHD (MTS, M2TS), DivX, Xvid, MPEG, FLV, MOV, RM, RMVB, VOB, ASF, 3GP, 3G2, QT, DAT and AVI on Lumia 2520 using Xinfire Video Converter Ultimate.
