To remain present were encouraged recently with a tablet, which was only in Chinese and freshly can now find here: Nokia N1 a premium Android tablet , which takes some ideas of competition and mixed with their own yours .

Design: Emulating the iPad

The N1 is an Android tablet of 7.9 inches which is much like the iPad Mini . And is that aluminum chassis with rounded edges is classic apple. I liked the approach that was given to the Lumia, although it is obvious why Nokia and can not use it. Anyway it is a very pleasing and comfortable tablet to operate, just I feel it lacks personality. It comes in two colors: silver and gray, with a weight of 318g and a low thickness of 0.69 cm.

Z Launcher: Your own version of Android

In its 2K (2048 x 1536 pixels) screen you can see the latest version of Android, Lollipop, but with a facelift from Nokia. This new interface is called ” Z Launcher “and, besides using many circular icons, has the particularity to show my day according to time . So, if you’re in the home work shows some apps, and later at home other. This same idea is also implemented in the M9 HTC. Another detail is that you can write a letter on the screen and the system shows you the apps starting with her. According to Nokia, the more you use it, the N1 learns your habits.

While leading Specification

In specifications, the N1 is on par with any high end: we talked about its 7.9-inch IPS display with 2048 x 1536 , accompanied by an Atom Z3580 processor at 2.3 Ghz, which has a somewhat better than the famous 805 Qualcomm performance. Complement 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, apparently without possibility of expansion. The rear camera is 8 Mega pixels and shooting Full HD, while the front stays at 5MP.

Interestingly use the new connector ” Reversible USB Type C “. It is a small connector USB cable that can be plugged on both sides, and is equal on both ends of the cable. It also allows load faster devices. Would replace the USB Micro lifetime.

Conclusions and price

Not much more to say about the N1, a tablet that looks promising despite its lack of originality . If you want one, you’ll have to wait because it’s still unique to China , although it is clear that reach (to have a website in English and all). Approximate price in China, is $ 249 cheaper than what you can get, for example, a Galaxy S Tab 8.4 (300 €).
