Nokia has announced the N1, an Android Lollipop-powered 8inch tablet that's set to come out next year
Nokia is back in the devices business, and it's just announced a shiny 8 inch tablet that looks an awful lot like an iPad Mini.
It's not an iPad Mini though, it's an Android Lollipop powered slate with the Nokia Z Launcher layered on top.
Z Launcher essentially lets you scribble out commands with your meaty fingers, and brings up context sensitive information quickly and easily.
The tablet features a fully laminated 7.9 inch display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.Camera tablet
There's an eight megapixel camera at the back and a five megapixel camera at the front.
It weighs in at 318 grams, and it's 6.9mm thick. Which is quite light and quite thin. There's a reversible type-C USB connector port at the bottom. Which might be good, if I knew what one of those was.
Apparently the N1 will be out in China before Chinese New Year, which is in February, and it'll cost $249 before tax. Expect a US and European launch to follow once the device has hit the Chinese market.
