The tablet is more popular than I thought it would be.

Yea not to bad. But not a lot of units to be had. Just 20k though...
I just hope their reliance on 3rd party doesn't hurt them. Back in the 08 days, 3rd party simply killed and delayed many things.

I think Microsoft should buy the remaining of Nokia to make sure they (microsoft) won't be embarrassed more.

microsoft dont have money to buy nokia. nsn alone is twice bigger and profitable than nokia device and service. they have thousands of patents worth tens of bilions, they have here maps which was purchased as navteq for 8 billion usd. nokia is so big dont take it lightly

No, MS didn't want that. They have enough cash to buy them out. Nokia services posted losses prior to the Tmobile upswing of new towers where now Nokia, in which Tmobile buys a ton of, threw a profit last year, and it wasn't even a billion in profit. If MS wanted to, they could have forged a deal. But MS never wanted all of Nokia. They do not want to be responsible for making cell towers, nor would have regulators allowed it.

Now I think there should've been a invite system. LoL

LoL Nokia isn't THAT stupid. Haha, OnePlus is a literal joke.
On the bright side of things, this is an excellent direction for a manufacturer to take. That is quite the impressively spec'D tablet and at a KILLER price point. Kudos Nokia Kudos!

I really think Microsoft made a big mistake not bring out the Surface Mini all they had to do is what Nokia did and use an Intel atom CPU plus Intel chipsets and load it with Windows 8.1. As I have said before Microsoft needs their own branded "8 inch full Windows Surface Mini" to sell online and in their Physical stores so that low income and moderately income Folks can buy a true Microsoft Budget tablet. This is not a DUMB idea because Microsoft best selling smart phones are the LOW Cost models not their Flagship smart phones although they are great Phones. A Full Windows 8.1 Mini Surface 8 inch Tablet selling between 150 to 400 dollars would sell very well Online and in their Physical stores. I will buy a Windows tablet first and then buy this Nokia N! tablet and buy a used Ipad wifi unit to check what they have to offer.

They don't need to. There are tablets like the HP Stream 7, $100, runs Windows 8.1 not RT. That covers the low end of things with a decent brand to boot, not some no name chinese company.

Microsoft problem were their OS is not quite popular choice among phone and tablet user. Just as Huawei executive says.... no company making money out of WP device.

It's made by Foxconn? So....Nokia isn't actually coming back to the tech world? Bummer.

The brand is still hot and loved by masses. I would absolutely get one if I could, even though I love my Nokia Windows Phone
