Nokia N1 Android tablet to be launched in China next month?
Microsoft acquired Nokia’s Devices & Services division, which was the Finnish firm’s think tank when it came to designing new devices. Now that the software giant owns Nokia’s device making unit, what will happen to Nokia? Last month, Nokia revealed that it wasn’t done making devices, with the unveiling of the N1 Android tablet. According to a report, the Finnish firm may launch its first Android tablet in January of next year in China.
This is according to a report from Chinese-speaking Sina. It reports Nokia will launch the N1 in China first in time for the Chinese New Year. The Chinese New Year kicks off on the 19th of February. It adds that Nokia will be holding a press conference in the country on the 7th of January to officially unveil the tablet, with a possible release on that same day. The tablet will set interested parties in China back around £160.
Despite it’s entry-level price, it looks and feels like a premium offering. It is 6.9 mm slim and is encased in an aluminium casing. Specs include a 7.9-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, no microSD card slot, an Intel Atom Z3580 64-bit quad-core processor with each core clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and a 5,300 mAh battery.
It is yet to be determined if the N1 will land in the UK.
