Ill also be traveling for the Christmas holiday soon, and I can see it coming in handy while waiting at the airport (so many cute cat videos to watch, so little time). But that privilege also comes with the added expense of monthly data plans. The Lumia 2520 costs $400 with a two-year contract on AT&T or Verizon, and data plans for the 32 gigabyte Verizon model I tested start at $30 per month for 4GB of data plus a $10 monthly line access fee. AT&Ts data plans start at $15 per month for 250 megabytes of data. Alternatively, you can pay $500 for the Lumia 2520 without a contract, and pay for a monthly data plan only when you need it. Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi Surface 2 costs $450 flat, and Nokia currently doesnt have plans to offer a Wi-Fi-only Lumia 2520. Still, for those who crave or need that always-on connectivity, the extra expense might be worth it, and the Lumia 2520 is a lot cheaper than some of the alternatives. The 32GB iPad Air with 4G, for example, costs $630 on contract with Verizon, and the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 costs $500 on contract.
