Nokia makes it official: Nokia N1 to launch in China on January 7th
Just the other day, we passed along a rumor that Nokia would introduce its Nokia N1 Android tablet on January 7th, with a chance that the slate would be launched in China on the same date. Now, Nokia's social media sites have confirmed that the N1 Android tablet will be available in China starting on January 7th. The slate will be one of the first devices to support the USB-C reversible connector.

The Nokia N1 is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $249 USD. It will be equipped with a 7.9-inch Gorilla Glass 3 screen, with resolution of 2048 x 1536. A 64-bit quad-core 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 CPU drives the device, which includes 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. There is no microSD slot on this slate, but there is an 8MP camera on back. A 5MP snapper adorns the front of the tablet, and an ample 5300 mAh battery keeps the power running. Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

Nokia is running a contest in China where winners can score 800 tickets and six VIP passes for the manufacturer's media event on January 7th. 24 will win the Nokia N1 slab.

I'm looking forward to the day Nokia launches N1 in other regions. Hopefully that won't take too long.

If Nokia can get the N1 to the US and offer Nexus-style frequent updates, then it will sell like crazy.

Fun Fact: Jesus wasn't born on Dec 25.

Don't take my word for it - look it up.

Mobile phone world without Nokia (the real innovative Nokia, not the Microsoft one) is soooo boooring. I would love to see some original phone design like the Nokia E90 because I'm sick of today phones who are all the same (exept the new released BlackBerry).

Has there been any confirmation on it having Google Services when it hits Western shores?

If this Intel Atom based Nokia N1 Tablet uses the same Intel chipsets Windows 8 atom based tablets already on the market place use then this tablet will be able to RUN Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 tech Preview because they have the drivers to run it's components. Folks it seems to me Nokia may have this in Mind as a future option. Windows 10 with it's universal apps and it's Desktop fans friendly Operating system will be a hit when it comes out next year because it blends the use of old desktop programs and touch screen apps in such a way that Metro/Modern Ui/Universal Apps can work on the desktop screen in a window just like Standard PC desktop apps do. whether a person wants to use a Universal app is up to the windows 10 Users.

Geekbuying has a dual boot android and Win8.1 tablet.

But Win10 isn't going to change anything. All universal apps does is bring WP apps to the x86 based computers. The desktop will be as unfriendly as it ever has been on tablets for the past decade.

Nice to have for those who like it, but we are a vocal minority.

Hasnt stopped me from using it on a 11.6in tablet running on a old tablet.

Win10 has run solidly on it, not a single crash.

And yes universal apps change everything. Not because they will call it universal apps, but because it will be a code once, run everywhere. they are do to some extent where 80-90% of code is shared, from what it sounds like it will be 100% of code, compile and the Code will change to the system it is used on, freeing the dev.

Leave Windows out of this.

This is about a Nokia ANDROID TABLET, not some junk for the 3%ers...
