Qualcomm has taken sides in the battle of Windows RT tablets. CNET reports that Qualcomm product management senior vice president Raj Talluri thinks that Nokia’s recently unveiled Lumia 2520 easily outclasses Microsoft’s own Surface 2 in terms of GPU performance, wireless connectivity and other metrics. In fact, Talluri thinks that the “brilliant” Lumia 2520 performs so well that “it’s not really even a contest” between the two tablets because “in every area, it’s much bigger, faster, and lower power.” Talluri’s remarks shouldn’t come as a surprise, of course, since Qualcomm supplies the chips for the Lumia 2520 while the Surface 2 relies on the Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset. Even so, the Lumia 2520′s specs are very impressive and it’s nice to see that people interested in Windows RT tablets will have at least one other choice besides the Surface.
