Nokia has rolled out a new tablet that is powered by the Android operating system called the Nokia N1. The tablet comes with the Nokia Z Launcher home screen that promises to make the tablet simple to use and gives users the ability to scribble a letter on the screen to find apps that start with that letter. Nokia uses a 64-bit Intel quad core processor inside.
A one-piece aluminum case makes the tablet lightweight and strong enough to survive daily use. A 7.9-inch zero air gap display with a native resolution of 2047 x 1536 is used on the tablet. That screen is covered with Corning Gorilla glass 3 and is an IPS panel with LED backlight.
The processor I mentioned before is an Intel Atom Z3580 operating at 2.3GHz. Sound comes from a pair of 0.5W stereo speakers with 90dB with less than 10% total harmonic distortion. Memory is 2GB of 800MHz LPDDR3 RAM.
Dimensions for the tablet are 200.7mm H x 138.6mm W x 6.9mm D. An 8MP rear camera with autofocus is used along with a 5MP front camera with fixed focus. Internal storage is 32GB and power comes from a 5300 mAh lithium polymer battery. WiFi, Bluetooth, and BT 4.0 are integrated. The operating system is Android 5.0.
Available in Lava Grey and Natural Aluminum colors, the N1 will be first sold in China in Q1 2015, with a price tag of 249 USD.
