Nokia is estopped from making a smartphone till the end of 2016, but that hasn’t stopped the company from releasing a brand new tablet. Say hello to the N1, a brand new Android 5.0 Lollipop powered tablet. The tablet ships with a design that closely resembles the iPad Mini, and features top specs including a 7.9″ 2048 x 1536 IPS screen, ‘retina’ if you will. It is powered by Intel’s 64-bit Atom Processor clocked at 2.3 GHz and comes with 2GB of RAM. The N1 is crafted from a single piece of aluminum, and packs an all new reversible USB connector.
The end result is that Nokia has a tablet that’s thinner and lighter than Apple’s iPad Mini, and better spec’d too. An 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP front facing camera are the other highlights. Coupled with its $250 price tag and the fact that it runs stock Android with the Z launcher on top of it, it makes for a very compelling device.
The only bit of bad news is that the tablet is expected to hit China around the Chinese New Year in February, and there is no word on where else it is headed for now.
Nevertheless the Nokia of yore is back, and if the tablet is any indication, don’t be surprised if Nokia holds a press event the day their embargo on smartphones lifts. Full tech specs and pictures below.

At Intel’s Computex, the first MeeGo running tablet has just made an appearance and it promises to thrill. The 10-inch Moorestown Quanta Redvale tablet is still running on pre-alpha software and will not be making it to store till 2011, but even in its current iteration it is quite a powerhouse.
It is poered by the 1.5GHz Moorestown chip and as you can see from this video it is pretty snappy and has no problems playing a 720p HD clip. While the tablet version of MeeGo is based on the netbook version, the UI is very diffirent. There are two modes, a simple icon based page and a much more advanced panel based design where your webpages, Facebook feeds, apps etc reside as live panels.
Engadget has a ton of hands on pictures and a video, jump over to check it out.
Forget the MeeGo Nokia phone for a minute, I’d like to see them announce a MeeGo tablet come Nokia World. Apple has created a market for tablets, its upto Nokia to cash on.
