The Nokia T20 tablet is Nokia’s second attempt in the Android tablet space. Taking a quick look at its offering shows it’s one of the tablets you may consider when in the market for tablets cheaper than the likes of the iPad and the Galaxy Tab. The highlights of this tab include a Unisoc T610 processor, IP52 rating, Google’s kid’s space, and more.
Where to Buy Nokia T20 Tablet
Design and Display
Tablet designs are very basic for the most part, which goes to say you probably won’t be able to tell the budget nature of the Nokia T20 by mere chassis examination.
What we have here, is a basic slab design with no bells and whistles. However, the slightly chunkier bezels on surround the display may be one thing you can use to differentiate the T20 from more premium tablet likes the likes of the iPad Pro 11 (2021)
Speaking on the display, we have a 10.4-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1200 x 2000 Pixels and a density of about 224 PPI. It isn’t anywhere near high-end, but it’s well enough to get stuff done.
Moving onto the rear. We find its rear camera module sitting in the top left corner and also the Nokia branding sitting in the middle position, making it know that it’s a Nokia Tablet.
Speaking on the build, the Nokia T20 tablet has a Sandblasted aluminum build, for the most part. However, we have hardened glass upfront, which is due to the presence of its display.
What’s more, Nokia took things up a notch, by having things in place to facilitate an IP52 rating for water and dust resistance. Please note that you shouldn’t expect the same measure of protection as you would get from something like the IP68.
The T20 is only able to withstand a fairly small amount of dust and water spray. So I urge you to try your best to keep it out of harm’s way.
On the side of color options, the T20 comes only in one colour which is the Deep-ocean build. A color option that is pretty much popular among Nokia handheld devices, especially its smartphones.
Compatibility With Accessories
Accessory compatibility is one of the things tablet OEMs focus on these days, this is due to the demand to make tablets fit more productively into our lives.
Today we have the major players offering connector pins for keyboards that have gone as far as having trackpads and USB ports built into them. The case isn’t the same with the Nokia T20. It’s just bare bones.
Enthusiasts who would want to use a keyboard accessory will have to rely on Bluetooth keyboards, which may not be convenient for some.
What’s more, there isn’t a stylus support here, so graphics designers whose primary tool is the Stylus may have to look elsewhere or search for a third-party offering that works well.
Onboard the Nokia T20 Tablet’s are a set of basic cameras on both the front and rear panel. There isn’t anything spectacular here, as far as the specs sheet goes.
On the rear, we have a single 8MP camera capable of videos up to 1080p @ 30fps. While on the selfie side, we have a single 5MP camera.
The cameras are very far from being high-end, but they are enough to take of snapping documents, taking photos of cheerful moments e.t.c. All other extras you would need from a camera should be taken elsewhere.
Hardware and Software
The Nokia T20 tablet is governed by the Unisoc T610 processor. We also have the 3GB / 4GB RAM, 32GB / 64GB built-in storage and a massive a non-removable 8200mAh Li-Po battery.
Again the performance hardware isn’t high-end like the top dogs, but there is denying the fact that it’s capable hardware, which would let you scale through a ton of tasks.
On the software side. the Nokia T20 tablet runs its software on top of the Android 11 operating system.
Google’s Kids Space
Morally wise, the internet isn’t safe. The tendency of your ward encountering a vice content on the internet is very high and you certainly do not want that to happen as a diligent parent. Nokia understands this and has made efforts to employing Google’s kid’s space in its software.
Google’s Kids space, is a program that lets you create a safe space for your kids. With the program in place, you can create an environment you can control. It requires you to create an email profile and then move on to select the kind of content you want to make available to your kids.
The Nokia T20 Tablet features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-c port, low-energy Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi / Hotspot.
Internet connectivity is capped at 4G, which means you won’t be able to utilize 5G connectivity on this tablet.
