The Nokia N1 tablet faced great success in China and the company is finally ready to bring its first tablet based on Android to other markets. Taiwan got lucky as the device is now official for the country and we’re likely to see it reach more locations in the coming months.
The Nokia N1 tablet was originally launched earlier this year and it managed to get sold out on multiple occasions not long after going on sale in China. The device is basically manufactured by Foxconn which also handles marketing and technical support.
The slate looks a lot like the iPad mini and it runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, but with the Nokia Z launcher preloaded. It flaunts a 6.9mm slim design where the outer shell is made from aluminum. Additionally, the tablet is the first to offer a USB Type-C port with USB 3.1 specification. It has a 7.9-inch 1536 x 2048 pixel LCD panel on the front with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
The exterior also plays host to dual cameras where a 5MP shooter can be found the front, while an 8MP snapper is fitted to the rear. The driving force within the Nokia tablet is a 64-bit quad core Intel Atom Z3580 processor clocked at 2.3GHz. Nokia has also thrown in 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage which sadly, isn’t expandable. A 5300mAh battery gets things up and running.
