Nokia’s first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520, hits store shelves this week. The tablet¬†features a 10.1-inch HD display, 4G-LTE connectivity, and a 6.7 MP camera.

Starting Friday, the black version (which looks like the only color available for now) will be offered for $400 with a two-year AT&T contract. It will also be available for $499 with no contract, according to the Microsoft Store.

AT&T is also offering a bundle deal that brings the Lumia 2520’s price down to $200 with a two-year contract, if you also purchase a Lumia 925, Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520.

Separately, in some Windows apps news, Microsoft has released its first 3D printing app, called 3D Builder.

The app works on Windows 8.1 devices. Windows 8.1 “makes 3D printing possible because it is native to the operating system, meaning the OS offers plug-and-play support for printers, understands 3D file formats, and connects lots of apps with lots of hardware to deliver offering a seamless printing experience for customers,” according to Microsoft.

And finally, Flipboard is now available for download in the Windows Store.
