Nokia N1 vs iPad mini 3 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact: specs comparison

Nokia N1 vs iPad mini 3 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact: specs comparison
Without a doubt, the announcement of the Nokia N1 Android tablet is the highlight in today's news stream – partly because it is exciting to know that Nokia has not given up on designing mobile devices yet, and, no less importantly, because the slate is shaping up as one of the best offerings in its segment. The latter becomes clear once you take a look at the N1's specs sheet – a 1536 by 2048-pixel display graces its front, a quad-core, 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor does all the number crunching, and 32GB of storage are on board for all your files. All of that is housed in a one-piece metal construction with ergonomic design. Seriously, what more could you ask for out of a $250 tablet?

Sadly, it will be a while until we get the chance to take the Nokia N1 for a spin as it won't be launched until next year. Nokia is planning on putting the N1 on shelves in China around mid-February, and there's no word on when the slate will reach western shores. Yet nothing stops us from comparing Nokia's first Android tablet against the competition. At least on paper, that is. Here is how the Nokia N1 stacks up against the iPad mini 3 and the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact in terms of specifications.
