What can beat the Kindle Fire HDX for bang for the buck?

What can beat the Kindle Fire HDX for bang for the buck? Depends on what you’re using it for and whether you prefer a keyboard, which is why the Nokia Lumia 2520 is getting the buzz.

WHAT TECH gizmo will you buy this Christmas?

I’m certainly not an technical expert, except where it comes to two decades of being an avid tech user and purchaser. Looking at them all, I’m wondering if anything bests the Kindle Fire HDX for price and punch, even considering the Amazon-focused app issue. “¦and who uses their tablet for a GPS?

After all, what’s a smartphone for, especially if you have a Samsung Galaxy, which has terrific GPS (just keep a car charger ready)? It can unlock many of these issues, right? The iPad Air is impressive, but it’s just as pricey.

One review from From ZDnet saying the “Apple iPad is out, Nokia Lumia 2520 is in”:

A Nokia Lumia 2520 eval unit arrived the day before Thanksgiving and two days later I am venturing out to purchase my own Lumia 2520 while my 3rd generation LTE iPad goes up for sale.

A couple weeks ago I bought an Apple iPad Air after Kevin convinced me to go look at one on MobileTechRoundup show #309. It wasn’t enough of an upgrade over my existing 3rd generation to justify the $900 and I returned it two days later.

[..] A full review of the Nokia Lumia 2520 will be posted next week, but in the meantime I am loving the display, enjoying media playing from the loud front facing stereo speakers, finding all the apps I need in Windows 8.1, having fun customizing the Start screen and Live Tiles, enjoying the durable feel of the plastic and Gorilla Glass (I’ve tended to set it down without worrying so much about scratching it like I do with my iPad), and absolutely finding use for the split screen functionality that is looking to improve my functionality and efficiency.

The bottom line is what the user does on it.

If you’re buying for someone who doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles, you won’t have many of the problems already being reported.

That doesn’t mean I’m not intrigued by the Nokia Lumia 2520. So many toys, such a big decision to make for people.

Happy Black Friday!

“¦and don’t forget Cyber Monday is coming for those who, like me, prefer doing Christmas shopping on the web.
