Just when we thought that Nokia was done as an independent manufacturer, the Finnish brand surprised us by announcing a new tablet which runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. The N1 Tablet looks like a decent comeback for Nokia and the device itself looks elegant with a similar design to the iPad mini.
According to sources, the tablet is design by Foxconn (the same company that makes Apple products), features a 7.9-mm display with a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 64-bit SoC. It comes with a unibody design and is quite slim at just 6.9 mm. The price for the tablet has been put at $249 (Rs. 15,300 approx.) which sounds impressive. The tablet surprisingly runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the Nokia Z Launcher over it. Nokia says that it will brought to the market in Q1 2015 through a brand-licensing agreement with an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner responsible for manufacturing, distribution and sales.
Here are some interesting features of the tablet:
