Microsoft has acquired Nokia’s smartphone business but the part of the company that was not acquired is still in the hardware business. Nokia has today announced its new Android tablet, the Nokia N1 running on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
The Nokia N1 has a 7.9-inch IPS display with screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
There is an 8MP rear facing auto focus camera and a 5MP front facing camera. It comes with stereo speakers, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. It is the first device to include reversible Type-C connector, allowing users to plug connector without worrying about the orientation or direction of the plug.
The N1 tablet is powered by the latest Android version, i.e 5.0 Lollipop but on top, it runs its own launcher, the Z Launcher. The tablet is driven by a 5300mAh battery.
Nokia has licensed its brand, industrial design of N1, Z Launcher and IP on running royalty basis to its OEM partner Foxconn, which will handle full business, including sales to customer care.
