Nokia's N1 Android tablet could be released in January
Nokia last month announced its N1 Android slate, saying that it would launch it in China first, in early 2015, just in time for the Chinese New Year (February 19).

According to Chinese website Sina, Nokia will host a press conference on January 7, and could release the tablet in China the very same day. As previously reported, the N1 will cost $249, thus being quite affordable for what it’s going to offer.

The N1 is a 6.9mm-thin aluminum-made tablet that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and comes with Nokia’s own Z Launcher (which is already available to download via Google Play). The slate sports a 7.9-inch, 1536 x 2048 pixel IPS display, and is powered by a quad-core, 64-bit Intel Atom Z3580 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz. Other features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of non-expandable memory. A 5300 mAh battery is also on board. 

We’ve yet to find out where else the N1 will be available. Nokia said that it expects to expand sales beyond China anyway, so the tablet will most likely reach more markets not long after being released there. We’ll let you know when more details about this arrive.

A tablet without SD card slots is as useless as tits on a bull. Yes, that includes iPads. Wi-Fi connectivity is not always available so cloud storage and streaming is rendered useless.

It's nice to know that hundreds of millions of people have bought tablets and never used them.

I'd much rather have a gun and not need it than need a gun and not have it. I own 4 so it's a moot point for me anyway.

Four tablets or four guns (and please answer with another euphemism if you can)?

ROFLMAO!

Do you use the tablet on your lap in so that it hides the loaded gun, barrel-out, between your legs?

If nokia fail to provide warranty support in Europe, they can go and suck a fat one. I don't trust Chinese build quality.

@Neros: whatever phone you have, it's made in China…

Mine's made in Korea, bro :P. Only the battery is from China. What I'm trying to say is that the tablet needs to be officially available for sale in Europe. If I'm forced to import it from China, they can bite me.

Nokia had the largest phone market share in China from 1999 till 2012.
Its brand still a legend in there

Samsung has largest market share until 2014, and your point is?

Finally, the real successor to the Nexus 7. Google should let Nokia handle the Nexus line. This new tablet brings great specs to the table for a much more reasonable price.

Soon as they are available in the US, I'm buying one. It should be a great Android Lollipop 64-bit device. Wish it had more RAM, but I'm sure late 2015/2016 will bring many tablets with a lot more RAM.

It's already released. Another thing is when it comes on sale.

I hope that Nokia makes a Windows 10 version of this Tablet and allows it to have input fore micro SDXC cards. I wish That microsoft did not kill the Surface "MINI" but instead toke out the ARMS CPU and put in an Intel atom CPU and run Windows 8.1 on it. in fact folks maybe what you are seeing from Nokia now was a prototype of the Surface Mini Nokia designed for Microsoft that was rejected by Microsoft'
