Yesterday Nokia intrigued everyone with its Twitter post – the slogan "We’re up to something" and today's date – 18.11.14 – accompanied by a photo of a mysterious black box. Nokia didn't keep us in suspense for long, already showing what it had in mind today. It turns out that the mysterious hardware is the new N1 tablet, which with its characteristic screen proportions resembles the iPad or Nexus 9. In addition, Nokia unveiled an Android overlay that anyone can test – Z Launcher.
Nokia has just unveiled its new Nokia N1 tablet. Nokia, like the makers of the Nexus 9, was inspired by apple’s 4:3 screen aspect ratio – Nokia N1 by its appearance resembles the iPad. The screen size is 7.9 inches, and the resolution is 2048×1536. The screen is reinforced with Gorilla Glass 3.
The tablet looks very stylish with its aluminum casing in a shade of steel gray. The tablet is less than 7mm thick and weighs 318g. What's more, the tablet has a port for the so-called. reversible USB, which means no more forever matching the end of the cable to the input. As for the specifications of the device, inside you will find an Intel Atom 2 processor.3GHz, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory.
The battery has a capacity of 5300mAh. The tablet has WiFi and Bluetooth 4 connectivity as standard.0, however, you will not find GPS. The camera has a resolution of 8Mpx, and the videos recorded with it have 1080p quality.
The surprise may be the Android system installed on the device – after all, Nokia is still primarily associated with Windows Phone (although during MWC 2022 the manufacturer presented the first Android smartphones). The installed system is, of course, the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop, although it has been modified quite a bit. The tablet features the Nokia Z Launcher system overlay, which is supposed to be characterized by simplicity and ease of use. Thanks to it, in order to find an application, all you have to do is write (by hand) on the screen its name or just the first letter – the tablet itself will suggest applications starting with the given letter.
The overlay also takes care of the user's needs, based on the time of day – in the evening it suggests applications from the entertainment category, business applications – during working hours. What's more, interested users can test the Nokia Z Launcher on their devices – The beta application can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
The price of Nokia N1 positively surprises, as it is $249. However, we will still have to wait for the release – the tablet will be released in China in February 2022, and in Russia and other European countries a little later.
