Nokia N1's release date for China reportedly revealed, it's very, very soon

Nokia N1's release date for China reportedly revealed, it's very, very soon
Although it's technically not Nokia's first tablet, the upcoming Nokia N1 is one of its more important devices. First of all, it's the first Nokia device that will run Android out of the box (disregarding the discontinued Nokia X line which ran forked Android); it's also the first mobile device that the Finland-based ex-giant made after it sold its Devices and Services divisions to Microsoft; last, but not least, it will be one of the few Nokia devices that won't be, in fact, manufactures by Nokia itself.

Apart from being an important device for Nokia, the N1 will probably be a viable option to all those users that are on the market for a new slate, as it's boasting some potent hardware specs for a pretty competitive price tag - $249. For this amount of money you'll get a quad-core Intel Atom chipset, 2GB of RAM, a 7.9" display with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels, an 8MP rear camera, 32GB of on-board storage, and a 5,300mAh battery to keep the lights on. Software-wise, we have Android 5.0 Lollipop with Nokia's Z Launcher atop.

Sounds good, but the last variable that remained veiled in mystery was the release date of the slate. Nokia said the N1 will arrive sometime in Q1 2015, but certain reports claim that the Nokia N1 will hit the shelves in China on January 7, 2015, boasting the same aforementioned price tag. There's no word on its release for the rest of the world, but we hope that the potential adopters of the Nokia N1 tablet won't have to wait long.

Folks since this an Atom based device it will probably use the same chipsets that Atom based Windows 8 Tablets are using therefore there is a very good Chance you can run Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 Tech preview on this tablet because the Windows OS has the drivers to run it's chipsets already within it's OS. If I bought one I would convert it to Windows 10 tech preview. I bet you will see a UTUBE video where someone will do this.

Why is it so iPad look alike? It'd be better with lumia 2520 body design. I think Nexus 9 still a better choice.

The Nokia N1 looks like a great tablet for the money. High res screen, 64-bit chip, decent form factor, all for $250. I'm buying one so I can dabble with 64-bit Lollipop. The Nexus 9 is overpriced and has a flaky processor. The Nexus 6 is a whale, has a stale 32-bit processor, a second tier screen, and is so laden with Google spywear that the battery life is terrible. Of course, root is available, so some things are fixable. The N1 is kicking off Android L 64-bit like a real Nexus should. Good specs, good price.
