Apple has had a mixed relationship in the past with colorful products, but so far the iPad hasn't been one of them. Meanwhile, Nokia has just dropped its first Windows 8.1 tablet, the Lumia 2520, and it's plastic, colorful and relatively well priced. Apple recently brought out a colorful, plastic device of its own, the iPhone 5c, so how would you like a similar tactic with the iPad? How about a plastic, colorful iPad c?

The Lumia 2520 is available for $499 off contract with 4G LTE and 32GB of on-board storage, and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip. Ignoring the Windows 8.1 vs iOS argument, on specs alone the shiny red plastic tablet offers more for the money than the iPad Air. But Nokia has managed to cram an excellent display and all that additional hardware goodness into a colorful, plastic shell, and no-one could ever accuse it of not standing out in a crowd.

So, how about it? Would you go for a plastic clad iPad that came in your favorite color, or are you happy enough with what we're offered at present? As ever, stick a vote up top and your thoughts in the comments below! And for more on the Nokia Lumia 2520, be sure to check out the full review over at Windows Phone Central
