While some of us thought that behind the lately Nokia teasers is hidden a tv-box or a mini-computer, today the Finnish company surprised everyone by launching the Nokia N1 tablet, device that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and that arrives on the market for a $249 price tag.

Even if the Nokia mobile division was bought by Microsoft, it seems that the contract didn’t said anything about tablets, so today Nokia did this by launching a first Android slate. Once with the launch event, a couple of lucky journalists had the chance to get their hands on the tablet for a couple of minutes.

Among them were also the guys from weand.com that took a couple of pictures with the tablet that can be seen during this post. As we can notice, in terms of design, the Nokia N1 tablet looks a lot like the iPad Mini slate, not only by its looks but on the display size too, both devices bringing a 7.8-inch panel.

Nokia N1 comes with a quad-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB space of internal storage, a 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a microUSB v2.0 reversible port. Would you buy this device once available in your country?

    If the tablet is made as well as its design and the mirroring display allows reasonable outdoor use, it looks well worth buying. However, I prefer Windows (64b pro); Android lets me hesitate.

    No.
    Why is Nokia and Microsoft by extension so horrible at determining what people want. PUT FRONT CAMERAS ON YOUR MID SPEC. PHONES. THAT WOULD BE 600 SERIES. INNOVATE!
