Nokia N1 Android Tablet Revealed for $249, Nokia isn’t leaving Android after all

Surprise! Nokia isn’t away from Android world. It is just the smartphone that probably won’t get updated, but Nokia has just announced the Nokia N1 Android tablet at the Slush event in Finland, earlier today. And, it again isn’t the standard Android OS, as Nokia is going to launch this with the Z Launcher.

The 7.9-inch tablet device comes with the Gorilla Glass 3 protection and it has a 2048×1536 resolution, and it is a IPS panel with LED backlight. Nokia has also mentioned that it is a fully laminated zero air-gap display. What powers the Nokia N1 tablet is a 64-bit Intel Atom Processor Z3580, clocking at 2.3 GHz and there is 2GB LPDDR3 RAM.

There is 32GB internal storage and PowerVR G6430 GPU powers the graphics output. The N1 tablet has a good camera combo, with a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing one, both having 1080p video recording capability.

This is a one-piece design made using Aluminum with surface anodization (sandblasted for a satin finish). Nokia has managed to keep the thickness at 6.9mm, and still pack in, a 5300 mAh battery. Another great part about the tablet is the Android Lollipop OS, which would be running in it, with the Z Launcher.

The Z launcher isn’t something new for Nokia fans, because the Launcher was already available on the Play Store, and that is now even more polished to give a good experience for tablet users, and Nokia could get no better time than this, to bring the tablet device and launcher together. In the Z launcher, you can scribble a letter or two with your finger to bring up things around that, and that changes based on the usage. The apps are categorized based on what you need, when you need it. The Z Launcher is although available on Play Store, what you would see in the Nokia N1 tablet is a polished and exclusive version for Android Lollipop OS.

The audio output is from the two 0.5 W stereo speakers. It is said to have an audio level of 90 dB, with the total harmonic distortion (THD) being lesser than 10%. The tablet has the MicroUSB 2.0 port with Type-C reversible connector.

No information about the availability yet, the tablet is going to sell at $249. The Nokia N1 will be out with two color options – Natural Aluminum or Lava Gray. For the 8-inch size, the weight of 318 gm makes it light enough, compared to other tablet devices with similar screen size. No sharp edges can help in holding the tablet for a long time.
