Nokia T21: HMD Global finally releases Android 12 tablet in US with launch bundle
HMD Global has finally brought the Nokia T21 to North America, over six months after its European debut. Debuting last September at IFA 2022, the Nokia T21 combines a UNISOC Tiger T612 chipset with 4 GB of RAM and an 8,200 mAh battery. For reference, the tablet supports 18 W charging through its USB Type-C port. In other words, it will need several hours connected to a power outlet before it returns to 100% charge.
Additionally, the Nokia T21 has a 10.4-inch IPS display with a 2,000 x 1,200-pixel native resolution. According to HMD Global, the display peaks at 360 nits, supports active pen input and is SGS Low Blue Light certified. Unfortunately, the device itself is only Widevine L1 certified, which limits it to 720p video quality on streaming services like Netflix. It is also worth noting that HMD Global will update the Nokia T21 to Android 14 at best, with two years of major software updates offered from the tablet's 'global launch date'.
The Nokia T21 is available from Nokia's website for US$239.99 with 64 GB of storage and in a Charcoal Grey finish before taxes and shipping. Moreover, the company offers a Flip Cover case for US$39.99, although the pair can be purchased together in a bundle for US$229.99.
