Nokia, yes, Nokia – not Microsoft or Lumia or anything in-between, have just announced an Android tablet.
It’s only a matter of months since the phone unit got sold off to Microsoft, but here’s there N1 Android tablet now that the company have regained control of the Nokia brand. Whilst Microsft are now running with “Lumia”, the boys at Nokia have today unveiled a 7.9″ tablet with Nokia apps and a 2048×1536 pixel screen.
To be honest it looks a lot like another iPad. Sorry, tablet, and is made from one piece of anodized aluminium. It’ll run on a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor and has 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and two cameras – an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a 5 megapixel one up front. Not too shabby.
The N1 is 6.9mm thick and weighs 318 grams. Inside it’ll run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and will run the Z Launcher that’s just popped up.
Made by Foxconn (you know them, they make a few other tablets too) it’ll first be available in China for $249 from February and then onto Russia and “selected European countries”.
More as we get it, but you can have a nose at the video below to see more..
