As promised earlier, the Nokia N1 tablet is now official in China. You won’t be able to take it home just yet, since it’s only on pre-order at the moment. It’ll be made available starting January 29th, which is just a little over three weeks from now.
With competition coming in from left, right and center, Nokia have done well to make a tablet that not only is decently powered, but also extremely well priced. According to Android Central‘s report, the tablet will be distributed by none other than Foxconn, a company which will also take care of the service support besides manufacturing the Nokia N1.
Gizchina News of the week
The tablet comes with a 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 pixel display, something which Apple calls ‘Retina’. Other than that, there’s an Intel Atom Z3580 CPU on-board along with 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM and an 8 mega-pixel / 5 mega-pixel camera combo for the rear and front respectively. Nokia haven’t cut costs on the battery segment as well, which means that the N1 gets a massive-sounding 5300mAh unit. The device gets a 1599 CNY / US$256 price tag in China.
And here we ask again, will you pick the Nokia N1 over a proven beast such as the Xiaomi Mi Pad? The N1 not only promises a better build, but also faster software updates; for that matter, it comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop on-board, albeit with its Z Launcher on top.[Source, Via]
too expensive in my opinion, I prefer xiaomi mipad for less money
I prefer the metal body and (almost vanilla Lollipop) instead of Kitkat MIUI.
I just feel it should have more Ram to really grab attention…
Me too. But then, no 3G … I’m out.
i don’t think it really matter for a tablet, I have iPad with 3G, but really, most of the time I use it, there’s always a wifi connection, hell even if there’s none, you can still tether it from your phone. So, on a tablet, the absence of 3G really is not a huge deal breaker, unlike your phone.
Sorry but the absence of 3G on a tablet is a serious deal breaker for me. Maybe you live in the USA, I don’t. In my country, we dont have free wifi APs around to use. So we have to depend on 3G to go online and if any of my gadgets dont have that, I dont bother with it. Besides, why buy a tablet and then start tethering internet to it via a phone? Why not just buy the 3G tablet and let it deal with the internet on its on. Doesnt make sense to me really.
Just stupid to pay for 3g/4g on both your phone and for your tablet in my opinion. I personally would just use my phone to get 3g/4g with my tablet which takes about 30s to do. But if you have the money why not! 🙂
iPad Mini only has 1GB of RAM.
But the iPad Mini runs on the heavily optimized iOS and not our resource hungry Android…
You’ve got to think future proofing too!!!
It would be really interesting if it is able to run windows 8.1/10
How ironic. The one time Nokia’s running pure Android and someone wants Windows on it.
why not both ?
Nokia vs. Jolla… Let the battle begin!
