Nokia has made a comeback in the consumer space. After it sold of the handset business to Microsoft it wasn’t clear what the company would do in the consumer space.
It might be confusing to some but now Nokia has come out and launched a 7.9″ Android tablet called the N1. It will run Android Lollipop 5.0.
Microsoft also has a tablet under the Nokia brand but as with the smartphones they will be re-branded to Microsoft sooner rather than later.
The Nokia N1 is powered by a 2.3 GHz Intel Atom processor, the display resolution is 2,048 x 1536 and it has 32 GB of internal storage. It is equipped with a 8 MP rear and 5 MP front-facing camera.
Unfortunately it does not have a microSD slot.
The N1 comes with the Nokia Z launcher which is a feature that lets you scribble a letter on the letter on the home screen and brings up relevant apps or information.
The Nokia N1 will go on sale in China in February for $249.
