Once in a time, Nokia was known for mobile brands and recently the brand about ‘Lumia’ series. But now Nokia has introduced a tablet ‘Nokia N1’, it is the great addition in tablet space with its fantastic build quality and hardware that allows for a consistent, smooth performance.
No need to pinch yourself, you’re reading that right, a Nokia Android tablet that’s actually rather good with the only real hole being the lack of Google apps and services in its current iteration that is intended for the Chinese market. Even though Nokia is out of the smartphone game, and have no plans to return to it for now, brand licensing of their name and software was possible, ultimately leading to the creation of the Nokia N1 tablet, an Android-based device running Nokia’s Z Launcher and manufactured by Foxconn.
The Nokia N1 is an Android-powered tablet which features Nokia’s Z Launcher software on top of stock implementation of Android 5.0 Lollipop. It is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom chip running at 2.4 GHz, backed up by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The Nokia N1 Tablet features a 7.9-inch IPS LCD display, with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 324 ppi, and a 4:3 aspect ratio. The panel is back lit and comes with a full laminated zero air-gap display, allowing for a great display experience, while keeping things scratch free with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The Nokia N1 is also only available as a Wi-Fi only tablet, so anyone looking for a tablet with data on the go will be out of luck here.
Pattern Of N1
When it comes to the design and build quality, the Nokia N1 tablet can comfortably compete with the finest of the lot. Featuring an aluminium uni-body design with a surface, the device offers a solid, premium feel in the hand. The back is smooth, and can best be described as providing the feel of a sheet of metal. The tapered edges allow for a nice rounded look, while also contributing to the grip and handling experience.
The Nokia N1 represents a change of approach from the Finnish company. Rather than manufacture, distribute, and support new hardware, following the sale of the Devices and Services division to Microsoft Nokia has licensed the design, relevant technology, and the Nokia brand name to a third-party.
