The Nokia N1 sells out the first of four consecutive flash sales


Borrowing a page from Xiaomi, in China Nokia has turned to flash sales to help the Nokia N1 tablet sell out on four separate occasions. Nokia will hold its next quick sale of the Android 5.0 powered tablet on February 26th. The slate is priced at the equivalent of $256 USD, and is made with anodized aluminum. The N1 features a 7.9-inch screen with resolution of 2048 x 1536. Those are the exact specs for the display on the Apple iPad mini 3 and the Xiaomi MiPad. Under the hood is a 64-bit quad-core Intel Z3580 CPU with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 5MP respectively.

The first flash sale sold out with 20,000 units purchased in four minutes. There were a total of 566,438 "buyers' interests" in the first sale. The second sale saw 666,594 buyers' interest over 32,000 units, which were all gone in 7 minutes and 47 seconds.

While we do know that both the third and fourth flash sales both sold out, we do not have the figures yet showing the number of "buyers' interests," and the number of tablets ultimately sold for each sale. What we do know is that Xiaomi obviously isn't the only manufacturer that can sell out its products using a flash sale.

Android was the clear winner, but nokia didn't want google to expand their reign over mobile world, so they got fcked in the process :D.

And you are saying Elop who came from MS had no influence on the board members decision? "Idiots" at Nokia wanted to go with Meego/N9 but some fat Canadian had other plans.

Exactly, this is just a Chinese manufacturer using nokia's brand and a design copied from aplle's ipad mini. Steal design then put a respectable logo on it = success.

Bullshit. This tablet is from Nokia, designed by Nokia, and manufactured by Foxconn. So, it's still a Nokia. Get your facts right.

Well, shame they haven't copied apple's design sooner and just kept making crappy-looking lumias in clown colours. People don't like rectangular phones with garbage ergonomics, terrible and childish colours, and a premium price tag.

This is whar happens when you don't listen to your customers - you go bust.

Well, the customer part is right for the most part...

Agreed. This is a Nokia-designed tablet. Foxconn just assembled it as per Nokia's design, much like the do with Apple's products or some of BlackBerry's smartphone portfolio.

Same like apple... apple isn't an apple, it is foxconn.

Yet, it's the other manufacturers who keep copying apple.

Face it, nothing is original these days. Copying (or "Inspired") will make a product improve and become even better, just like how Apple copy Android features on their iOS.

Just look how many phones try to mimic iphone 6's design - it's so pathetic. Sure, most of the copycats are Chinese, but still this is so lame.

So said the troll. iPhone 6 is late in the large screen scene and yet Apple troll claim that others have to copy Apple.

iPhone 6 is a cross between Samsung Note 2 and HTC M8. That's a fact and smartphone timeline proves it.

That is good for them. Perhaps they can have a clean start this time without MS messing around destroying things.

I still remember the early days of the iPhone back in 2007, how Nokia fans acted like the iPhone was a toy , put out so many videos showing the superiority of phones like a N95 and symbian , Look what happened now !!!

I actually was a big time symbian user back in the day,
but
as soon as I got my hands on a iPhone , I knew symbian was dead and that the iO.S was the future ,

back then it was years ahead of anything else out there.
took Nokia and it's fans far too long to realize it.
it shows that sometimes the fans let down a company by their blind support as much as the CEO.

This goes to show everyone the power of the Nokia brand with an OS that the masses want. ABSOLUTELY NO DISRESPECT to Windows. I am a Windows fan and user (I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro that I use regularly and a Lumia 925 that I occasionally use), and I am excited about Windows 10, but it became very clear early on when Nokia adopted Windows that it's fans really wanted a Nokia device running Android.

Great job Nokia, and I look forward to 2016 when you will hopefully release an Android powered handset.
