Nokia N1 in lava gray pops up in actual photos
Nokia just revealed a thin aluminum Android slate with a zero air-gap 2K display, 64-bit chipset, 32 GB storage, Wolfson sound processor, quality speakers and mics, as well as a brand new Z Launcher software, meant to simplify your Android experience. The cited $249 price tag for the N1 is more than welcoming as well. The most interesting thing, however, is that Nokia actually licensed its name, know-how, and intellectual property, including the Z Launcher software, over to an OEM company, which will be making and selling the tablet.

This might explain the iPad mini-esque design paradigm, too, and, judging from the first leaked hands-on pictures of the N1 below, in its Lava Gray color reincarnation, the resemblance is even starker in flesh and blood. Availability is cited for the first quarter of next year, at first in China around the local New Year's shopping spree, and then supposedly a further rollout will be happening. Whether or not the N1 tablet will keep its $249 price tag when it crosses over the big ponds, remains to be seen.

I'll take one to try it out for sure, $250 is pretty decent price imo.

It really is. Nokia should have joined this side a long time ago.

I have to say, I would get this for my wife over the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. If this beast can be rooted, I may have to consider this...

What a surprising day this is. Microsoft will never forget this day. It'll be a heart attack for Microsoft forever when they see Nokia teasing anything with a BOX in it even if it is a Lumia tablet lol...

Not really since this thing is only releasing China for now and it has no plans in the near future for a worldwide release. Plus it will likely cost much higher when it retails outside China. and worldwide it won't stand a chance against a Nexus 9 (with its decent price point) or a Galaxy Tab S (with its bevy of features and Amoled panel) unless it is too competitively priced which most likely won't happen. Also, Nokia is nothing more then a name now and since the Devices and Services division is taken over. You can't expect the same level of customer service or parts availability should something go wrong.

Because WP tablet where a succes ? You make part of the same shills and fanboys who where saying that Nokia was making a good choice until they got sold to Microsoft. We all know what you say is pure sh!t and is just a Microhard fanboy hate talk. Please get kindly out of here, we don't need people like you anymore on this news.

First of all calm down ! Secondly, its not YOUR site, so please don't tell me what do to do what not to. If you don't like to read my comment simply melt some iron and gently pour it down your eyes. Thirdly, at least learn some decent english if you want to troll this hard. And lastly, rather then insulting people and making fool of yourself why don't reply with an actual argument ? That will get more accomplished then your useless whining.

tech2 you don't have to do nothing on this news if you want to bring so much negativity. Those times are representing very strong joy moments for all Nokia fans and respectful and smart people, if you are not happy and want to bring negativity don't click on any Nokia news again. You just get what you search for. This will bring to you two benefits, be happier in your life and not having to waste time saying negativity as now.

Well,I half expected this to come world wide at least on India. If it does I'll be buying one since most of the people now buying Moto and xiaomi devices . They lack customer support. And of course price does matters. I hope this to be at least make Nokia alive.

how can you be so sure about that? nokia is known for refined craftsmanship and with their CEO, I bet those thing you're saying are already been planned. even the acquisition maybe also staged by nokia, so they can sell their old garbage to microsoft and start new with their fresh billions of dollars, they can get their loyal employees back to them, and make a Renaissance Era of Nokia, the dark age are over. :D

I am sure their lawyers are fully aware of the contract so I doubt this would be a huge surprise. I mean, they killed off the Nokia name early for a reason and the Surface is their bread and butter on the tablet side for now anyways.

Exactly my thoughts. And it is kinda ironic how those who are complementing Nokia for the greag design are the same ones who criticize Apple for their designs.

Well, we agree on something. Good price point, though, for an Android tab with a good build ( The last remains to be seen, but I'll stipulate that.).

Though this isn't that overpriced crashing lag fest of maleware. It also probably isn't fitted with the cheapest components around like the latter, so yeah another may look like it but. So there is that. 8)

So just by looking an image you figured it has no lag or 'maleware' ? and can you englighten which device crashes and lags released in 2014 ? Clearly, you don't know anything about android. You should probably change your profile pic.

You obviously missed his point, he was pointing out at the iPad that it had all these problems. Tbh, as much as i dislike Apple, i can't get it how Android fans can mock the lag on Apple, not until recently we finally started experiencing a smooth UI on our $700+ flagship phones. Let's stop being biased towards one platform against the other.

Clearly an overly exaggerated post, merely salt to soothe wounds for some others. Ftr though, Nokia usually won't put out garbage with their name on it unless guided by outside forces or funds, so I'd expect this to be pretty damn brilliant out of the box for the price asked even.

LOL...... when you say 'lag or malware', iOS is not the first thing that comes to mind. Clarify better in future please ! Its not really my fault that your sentence forming skills are weak. Again its not 'overly exaggerated' just exaggerated is fine. The word exaggerate itself means 'over or bigger'

Then you don't justify the title of tech of anything really. Shall I bring malware article an crashing iOS articles up or are we just not accepting FACTS? One of them is still on front page of PA ffs.

nexus 9 has been reported to have some lag, which is disappointing considering the processor on the K1 might not be as powerful as 805 as far as CPU goes, the GPU is better but if it stutters, that is not a great thing.

The external box may be a copy, but the internals, display, audio, chipset could be Nokia designs
