Nokia's N1 Android tablet is out of stock again (sold out in mere minutes)

Surprise, surprise: the second batch of Nokia N1 tablets that’s been made available in China went out of stock in just minutes - after the same thing happened last week with the first batch (including 20,000 units).
While there’s no word on how many N1 units were ordered this time, it’s obvious that the slate is somewhat of a hit. Reportedly, more than half a million Chinese customers showed their interest in buying the N1 - that’s why the tablet sells out so fast. We’re not shocked by this: since the day of its announcement (November 18, 2014), the N1 attracted massive media attention - not just because it’s the first mobile device introduced by Nokia after selling its phone business to Microsoft, but also because it offers great features at a very attractive price.
For around $259, customers buying the Nokia N1 are getting an aluminum-made tablet with a 7.9-inch, 1536 x 2048 pixels display, a quad-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal memory. The slate run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Nokia’s Z launcher on top, and will be in stock again in China on January 22.
For now, China is the only country where the Nokia N1 is available to buy. The tablet should be released in Europe soon, with other markets possibly following after that.
Assuming you'll be able to find one, do you plan to buy a Nokia N1?

The Microsoft Surface Mini RT tablet that was Killed had specs like this device except it used an ARMS CPU. Microsoft needs to put a sub 450 dollars Surface Tablet that runs Windows 8.1/ Windows 10 on the market. because their lowest price Surface pro's price starts at 799 USA $$. I hope that Nokia puts Windows 10 on this Tablet it would be a great seller

But, is it really a Nokia tablet or just a regular tablet with Nokia's name?

Everything is made in China, get over it. This was designed by Nokia and their execs said that they were heavily invested in QC. Foxconn seems to do a damn fine job building for Apple, so I'll take this any day.

Why didn't they do this in the first place? I always thought that if Nokia adopt Android they would be the largest smart phone manufacture. they were already there before Samsung swept pass them. So sad that the board blindly trusted, IMO, Elop. There was no way he could be unbiased coming from Microsoft. That would have been a red light for me as a board member. One of the stipulations of his contract would be that he would have to remove himself from any Negotiations and dealings that involved MS. Oh well no use crying over whats done. Best success to Nokia in it's, hopefully, fruitful comeback
