Who told you Nokia is dead? This is the new Nokia N1, an Android tablet that was unveiled today and has a striking resemblance with the iPad mini. The Nokia’s N1 has a 7.9-inch screen size with a 2048 x 1536 resolution all wrapped up in a single piece of anodized aluminum design.
Just look at the iPad mini this tablet is very identical starting from placement of the camera, also the bottom of the device has the same speaker grills and what looks like a Lightning port, but is actually one of the first implementations of the reversible type-C USB connector.
It comes in “Natural Aluminum” and “Lava Grey” color schemes, and a cover that looks suspiciously similar to Apple’s Smart Case. Inside you will find 2GB of RAM, a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, and 32GB of storage. Nokia’s N1 also has an 8-megapixel camera at the rear, and a 5-megapixel version at the front. Are you still a Nokia die hard? Here you go.
The tablet runs the latest Android 5.0 based on the home, back and menu keys. However expect the device to run Nokia’s own Android “Z Launcher.” The Z Launcher is available on Android phones, and launches in the Google Play Store today. Nokia is also partnering with Foxconn to build the N1, and the company is now planning to launch the Nokia N1 in China for $249 (before taxes) and also select European countries after the Chinese release.
