Nokia N1 hands-on: an unexpected but pleasant surprise

It might be a long, long time ago, but there was a time in mobile history when Nokia was famous for its phones. It fell on hard times and it was eventually left with a shell of former shelf. While the Finnish company is set to make its own smartphone after the sale of its mobile business to Microsoft, it has worked around that limitation and "launched" its own tablet, the Nokia N1. Limited to the Chinese market, the tablet makes a surprise appearance at MWC 2015, where we get to see and feel it first hand.

OK, maybe it's not all too shocking considering the direction it has been going, but it makes the surprise no less pleasant nonetheless.

The OEM released the official camera samples from their newest smartphone, and it looks like they might have hit the jackpot, based on these few photos at least.
