Nokia’s latest entry into the portable device market comes in the form of the newly announced Nokia N1 tablet. At first glance, it seems to be yet another iPad clone, but the affordable 7.9-inch tablet may surprise you, especially considering the fact that it comes from Nokia.While Nokia was once the leader of mobile technology, its popularity has dwindled in recent years. But the N1 may just be the boost that brings the tech company back from theashes.T
The Nokia N1 differs vastly from the Nokia Lumia 2520, the pre-split company’s first modern tablet. For one thing, the Nokia N1 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, not Windows8.1. The Nokia N1’s resemblance to Apple’s compact tablet is uncanny – and, to anyone who recalls Nokia’s distinctive design work fondly, perhaps a little heart-breaking.
In addition to the design, it also comes with Nokia Z Launcher and running on the android 5.0 lollipop.
It comes with a resolution of about 200.7 x 138.6 x 6.9mm and weighs 318 g.
The Nokia N1 takes advantage of Lollipop’s 64-bit support, packing a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor paired with 2GB RAM. Access to the applications and multitasking is fast and seamless
The N1 comes with 2GB of RAM. About internal memory, this tablet is nice with memory capacity of about 32 GB. However, it does not come with an external storage. But, we think this is enough to store a lot of files, including songs, videos and photos.
The N1 comes with dual cameras. This seems optimized for selfie. It can be seen with the front camera with 5MP fixed focus resolution. While for the main camera, 8MP auto-focus camera supplied. The camera can also be used for 1080p video recording.
The processor is supported by PowerVR G6430 graphic features, 533 MHz, and it promises maximum gaming and gaming experience will feel real
In addition to the performance of the camera, This Nokia N1 tablet is equipped with High Quality Discrete Audio Codec, Wolfson WM8958E and audio codec independent. So we believe the sound quality will be louder and clearer.
Plus, there is support from Two 0.5 W stereo speakers 90 dB with less than 10% total harmonic distortion (THD).

The Nokia tablet weighs only 318 g whereas Samsung’s is heavy, weighing 547 g. The former comes with an Android 5.0 operating system and the latter comes with an Android 4.3 operating system. Nokia’s tab has flash supporter browser while the Samsung’s tab lacks it. The picture clarity of front camera of Nokia’s tab is better, as it is 5 MP as compared to Samsung tab’s 2 MP.
