On Tuesday Finland's Nokia announced the Nokia N1, which is the "first Nokia-branded Android tablet." N1 will be launched in China in Januvary 2015. The new launch has a brand-licensing agreement extending to an OEM partner (Foxconn) that will manufacture, distribute, and sell it.
The Nokia N1 will cost almost $249, which means around Rs. 15,400 without taxes, and soon it will be available in other markets globally. However, with the launch of the tablet, Nokia N1, the company neatly bypasses the restrictions imposed by the Microsoft deal - for those unaware, after the acquisition of Nokia's devices and services division by Microsoft in April, the Finnish company can no longer use the Nokia brand on smartphones till Q4 2016, and on feature phones for 10 years.
"We are pleased to bring the Nokia brand back into consumers' hands with the N1 Android tablet, and to help make sophisticated technologies simple. The N1 has a delightfully intuitive interface and an industrial design to match it. This is a great product for Nokia fans and everyone who has not found the right Android tablet yet," said, Sebastian Nystrom, Head of Products at Nokia Technologies, who announced the Nokia N1 at the Slush technology conference in Helsinki.
Nokia says that the N1 tablet features a "unique one-piece aluminium design with a soft finish", and will be available in Lava Grey and Natural Aluminium colors, lets go through the features of it.Features Of Nokia N1
