The Nokia N1 tablet was one of the devices unveiled at MWC 2015. Running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the device is powered by an Intel 64-bit Atom processor which is mated to 2GB worth of RAM and 32GB worth of internal memory. The 7.9 inch tablet spots an IPS display with an aluminium unibody. Camera wise, the N1 tablet has an average 8 megapixel main camera on its back and a 5 megapixel shooter mounted on its front which is capable of 1080p video recording. Overall, the gadget is powered by a whopping 5300 mAh battery.
The Nokia N1 tablet unfortunately, is too reminiscent of the iPad Mini but in a simplified manner. Internally, there have been amendments made to the version of Android to support Nokia’s very own Z launcher on top of it. With the customized interface, users get to experience four by three grid app icons on the home screen that arranges itself based on the frequency of which you access the apps. This is for convenience and easy access for any user – it basically creates a favorite app section for you on the home screen so you don’t need to go to the main menu to access your most used apps.
There’ll be all your other installed apps on the next page of the screen when you swipe the home page. On top of that, with the Z launcher, users get to have the luxury of using the scribble search feature on the tablet. Users will need to draw letter on the home screen to search for any app. By drawing the first letter, a list of apps and contacts with that start with the said letter.
Physically, the device looks to be a solid product with round edges in a simplistic design. There is a micro USB port on the center bottom of the N1 tablet. This is a type C version USB port allowing users to plug the cables in any direction they choose.
The Nokia N1 tablet is only available in two colors – Lava Grey and Natural Aluminium. Sadly, the device will only be available for those in China for the price of USD$249 (MYR 905). No news on any international release has been made.
