Among Nokia’s N1 tablet we have a 7.9 inch panel with a 2.048 x 1.536 pixels resolution and a 4:3 screen ratio that is covered by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer, a quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz (64-bit), 2 GB of RAM memory, and 32 GB space of internal storage. We get a 8-megapixel rear camera and also a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor.

This tablet also brings a 5.300 mAh battery and the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system with the Nokia Z Launcher applied on-top. In terms of design, Nokia N1 resembles a lot to the iPad mini in both screen size and footprint. Would you buy it if available in your location?

    As long as there is no reliable 4:3 tablet with Windows and assuming the N1 is reliable, it might serve as a temporary tablet. However, the probably decisive question is how much the display is mirroring and so whether the tablet can be used well outdoors. Leaked images indicate a too strong mirroring, but maybe the leaks were fakes? A good test of the outdoor behaviour is essential. The N1 with Windows would be much more attractive.
