Nokia Announces N1 Android Tablet With Lollipop
Nokia have announced the N1, the first Nokia-branded Android tablet. The N1 will be brought to market early in 2015 through a brand-licensing agreement with an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner responsible for manufacturing, distribution and sales.“We are pleased to bring the Nokia brand back into consumers’ hands with the N1 Android tablet, and to help make sophisticated technologies simple,” said Sebastian Nyström, Head of Products at Nokia Technologies, who announced the N1 at the Slush technology conference in Helsinki. “The N1 has a delightfully intuitive interface and an industrial design to match it. This is a great product for Nokia fans and everyone who has not found the right Android tablet yet.”The NI design features one-piece aluminum design with a soft finish in both Lava Grey and Natural Aluminum colors. The 7.9″ laminated display sits in a 6.9mm thin and light design and features a 2.4Ghz Intel© Atom quad-core processor for the Android Lollipop operating system on the N1.
The N1 is planned to be available for purchase in China in early 2015 for an estimated USD 249 before taxes, with the anticipation of expanding sales to other markets later in the year.
