Back in 2014, it was safe to say that Nokia surprised everyone when they launched the Nokia N1 tablet. The tablet was surprising because it is an Android powered tablet and its design was very reminiscent of that of the iPad, but admittedly it looks pretty good. Now Nokia recently announced that the tablet had finally gone on sale in China where it was priced at $250.
With so many different tablets available, how did Nokia’s N1 tablet fare? Well according to reports, it seems that the tablet did rather well for itself. Apparently Nokia managed to blow through their entire supply of tablets, which was around the 20,000 mark, in record time which was at a reported 4 minutes 2 seconds.
If anything it seems that Nokia appears to be replicating the frenzy and success of Xiaomi who previously had announced similar breakthrough sales as well. Now we can’t be sure what exactly it is about the Nokia N1 that has made it into such a hot seller, but presumably its build and attractive price point have something to do with.
As a quick recap for those who missed the announcement, the Nokia N1 features a 7.9-inch 2048×1536 display. It will be powered by an Intel Atom Z3580 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz and will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, and will come with Nokia’s Z Launcher preinstalled.
