Nokia N1

Nokia’s return to the hardware market looks set to become official later this month as the N1 tablet will begin shipping in China on January 28th. Pre-orders for the Nokia N1, which is manufactured by Foxconn and sold under the Nokia brand, will begin tomorrow and the N1 tablet will cost 1599 RMB (equivalent to around $258 or £170).

When it was announced back in November, the Nokia N1 was received as offering a key challenge to the Apple iPad Air and Nokia’s first Android tablet shares many characteristics of Apple’s mini tablet. It sports a 7.9 inch IPS display with 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It runs on the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system and comes with Nokia’s Z launcher user interface on top.

The Nokia N1 is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Atom 64-bit processor with PowerVR graphics along with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. On the back is a 8MP camera with Full HD 1080p video recording whilst the front facing snapper is a 5MP sensor. It’s unclear whether either of these feature old Nokia’s PureView technology and camera quality. The whole package is powered by a 5300 mAh batter which offers up to 8.8 hours Wi-Fi browsing, 9.2 hours video playback or 13 hours standby time.

The Nokia N1 will available to pre-order from midnight tonight CST (which is 4PM GMT) from
