The Lumia 2520 graced our lives months ago, brightening our unboxing desk and leaving a lasting first impression. Sadly, it didn’t stick around long enough for us to give it the full review treatment, disappearing in a shipping accident so mysterious we sometimes still bring it up on the Pocketnow Weekly podcast.

Fortunately, Nokia has sent us a replacement unit, and this time around it’s included a bonus: the recently-released Nokia Power Keyboard. The long-awaited accessory brings two USB ports, a 2,027 mAh battery, and one of the most comfortable keyboards ever to Nokia’s Windows RT tablet, and bundles it all together inside a case that’s at once stylish and rugged. Four days spent with the wraparound accessory has convinced us that if we carried a 2520 as a daily driver, we wouldn’t be able to exist without the Power Keyboard as a companion.

But unless you ordered your 2520 before December, the Power Keyboard is going to run you at least $149 direct from Nokia or Microsoft. That’s a not-insignificant sum, and the question of whether it’s worth the added functionality is a completely valid one. That’s a question we aim to answer in the below video. So tune in for our Lumia 2520 keyboard review, then leave a comment down below with your own thoughts on this robust accessory to an epic tablet.
