Nokia goes Android with Nokia N1

After Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Nokia’s devices division, Nokia plans to re-enter the mobile devices market once again. To put their plans in motion, they have today announced a new tablet, Nokia N1. Interestingly, Nokia N1 would be powered by none other than the Google’s latest and greatest Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Nokia N1 is a 7.9-inch Android tablet with 2048×1536 pixel resolution and a Gorilla Glass 3 display. It would be powered by a 2.3 Ghz Intel Atom Z3580 (64-bit) processor, backed up by a 2GB RAM. Other specs include a built-in 32GB storage, 8MP back camera with a 5MP front-cam and an aluminium body only 6.9 mm thick.

Here are a few images of the upcoming Nokia N1 powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Unfortunately, Nokia N1 won’t be available till Q1 2015 due to legal issues. It would cost approx. 250 USD and start selling in China first while other countries will shortly follow. Since Nokia is licensing the industrial design, Z Launcher software layer and IP on a running royalty basis to Foxconn, hence they’ll be responsible for everything Nokia N1.

      Looks awesome but more of an iPad Mini clone.

        iPad mini clone!… no objection…
        but with Android I guess it’s more suitable for most of the people who can enjoy with it as they want… no?

          Nokia is known for its colorful devices and awesome Finish craftsmanship… This device is going to be lacking both. I don’t know if their old users would like that.
