It was a time back were Nokia ruled the mobile market , But today the situation is completely different , Nokia’s most sold phone is sold to Microsoft , People thought that Nokia is Dead but today Nokia Announced there bounce back with there first tablet called “Nokia N1” .
Set to cost around $250, the 7.9-inch N1 tablet will be on sale in China before Chinese New Year — 19 February 2015. Prices and release dates for other countries were not announced, but that US dollar price converts to around £160 or AU$290.
Finland’s former phone maker teased us on social media over the past few days with a new direction under the hashtag #Thinkingahead. Nokia’s head of products business, Sebastian Nyström, revealed the new direction at Slush 2014, an event for startups and technology companies held on Nokia’s home turf in Helsinki this week.
“The world doesn’t need yet another tablet,” Nyström said, claiming the N1 is for “anyone who hasn’t found the right Android tablet yet”.
Nyström also announced that Nokia’s Android launcher, Z Launcher, will be free on Google Play for Android devices from today. The N1 runs on the latest version of Android, known as Lollipop, but the Z Launcher forms the home screen. A launcher takes over your home screen and grid of apps, giving you a customised experience beyond the basic Android layout. Z Launcher is designed to customise the look of your phone by learning your habits and other indicators such as where you are, what time it is and what you’re doing. It also lets you search for apps by scribbling the first letter of the app’s name on the screen with your finger. The N1 is encased in a 6.9mm thick one-piece aluminium frame, in either dark grey or silver — which, it must be said, looks distinctly similar to Apple’s iPad Mini 3. It has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel snapper on the front, with 32GB of storage for apps, snaps, music and movies.
One of the most interesting things about the tablet is that it’s one of the first devices to boast a USB Type-C socket — that’s areversible USB port so you can stick the plug in either way round.
