As of 2015, Verizon only sells one tablet with Windows 8 called the Nokia Lumia 2520. The Nokia Lumia 2520 is for sale online at Verizon.com or at a Verizon retail location.
Verizon offers 20 tablet devices equipped to have access to the Verizon wireless network service. The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a discontinued product ever since Microsoft announced its intention to eliminate the Nokia brand and continue to focus primarily on producing PC devices. Microsoft acquired Nokia in 2014. Consumers who purchase the Nokia tablet from Verizon now have a limited warranty since the product has halted in production.
As of 2015, manufacturers no longer make tablets with a SIM slot to have access to the Verizon network or that has Windows 8. Connecting to a Verizon hotspot from a Windows 8 tablet provides another alternative to using Windows 8 on the Verizon network. For example, the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet is capable of utilizing the Verizon network via a wireless hotspot connection.
Verizon sells limited tablet brands such as Apple's iPad devices that come in two sizes and multiple color options. The company also offers Samsung Galaxy tablets. However, these tablets are all equipped with Google's Android operating system. Verizon is also one of the few carriers that offer LG tablets that also have the Android operating system.
