The new Lumia 2520 tablet, designed to "work anywhere", was unveiled at a news conference in Abu Dhabi.

Two new 6in (15cm) screen smartphones, or phablets, were unveiled - the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320 - offering easier access to apps and other new features.

"At Nokia we have found that tablet usage peaks between six and eight in the morning and between six and nine in the evening. During the rest of the day tablet usage drops quite dramatically," Nokia chief executive Stephen Elop said.

"We are looking to shift this trend - your tablet should be as mobile and as connected as you are."

Technology giant Apple is expected to release a new iPad today but has kept tight-lipped about the details.

The iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 devices are thought to be due for an unveiling.

Experts say they expect the iPad mini 2 will contain a better camera and a retina display, and could trigger the customary pre-Christmas technology rush.

There are also suggestions it could feature a fingerprint scanner, similar to the one used on the iPhone 5S, launched last month.
