Nokia may have sold its devices and services business to Microsoft but that doesn’t mean it’s completely out of the hardware game just yet. A few months back the Nokia N1 tablet was announced and since then we have been waiting for it to launch. Today Nokia finally launched this tablet.
The Nokia N1, developed by this Finnish company and manufactured by Foxconn, costs ¥1599 in China. That’s roughly $250.
This tablet has a 7.9-inch 1,536×2,048 pixel resolution display. It has an Intel Atom Z3580 2.3GHz quadcore 64-bit processor under the hood with 2GB of RAM. It is powered by Android, a skinned version of 5.0 Lollipop to be precise, with the Nokia Z launcher slapped on top. Nokia has already made the Z launcher available for all other Android devices up on the Google Play Store.
Speaking of the Google Play Store, this tablet provides full access to the Play Store and all Google services so its more or less like any other Android tablet out there, and not like the Nokia X lineup of Android smartphones.
Initially the Nokia N1 will only be available to customers in China but the possibility exists that it may be sold in other markets as well. For now those who want one will have to import one from the People’s Republic.
