Nokia’s N1 Tablet Finally Heads Out Of China, Heads To UK, Ireland First


At least there’s hope of an international release

Nokia’s N1 tablet, the first ever Nokia product to be released after Microsoft bought their mobile devices division, has been an intriguing device for fans of the company. Designed by the Finnish firm but built and sold by Chinese company Foxconn, the tablet is a sneak peek at Nokia’s comeback plans next year. But if you wanted to get the tablet, you’d have to buy it through retailers primarily based in China and Taiwan, as it hasn’t gotten an official release outside of the Chinese-speaking countries.

Nokia N1 specs

  • 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 64-bit processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 9-inch 1536 x 2048 resolution IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3
  • 32GB of storage
  • 8-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop with Nokia Z Launcher
  • 5300mAh battery

That’s finally changing, as the intriguing Android tablet is will now be sold via official channels for the first time outside of China and Taiwan, and will be heading to the UK and Ireland soon. This gives us hope that the Android-powered (but iPad looking) N1 will soon head over to our shores, even unofficially.

To refresh your memory, the Nokia N1 sports a quad-core, Intel Atom Z3580 processor with 2GB of RAM, 7.9-inch display, plus Android 5.0 on-board and Nokia’s nifty Z launcher. It originally retailed for $250 or around 11K.
