Nokia has announced a new device under its trademark. At today’s special operations “Slush event” Nokia «unexpectedly» announced tablet Nokia N1, running OS Android. The seed is the announcement was made yesterday when the photograph was published with a mysterious black box with the inscription “Nokia”. Many rushed to wonder what promises us this northern manufacturer. However, according to experts MC, “now produce tablet on Android – a step closer to suicide».
The novelty introduced Head of Marketing of Sebastian Nyström.
Housing Nokia N1 new items made of aluminum, the device light and thin (6.9 mm). The tablet is equipped with a 7.9 ” screen with a resolution of 2048×1536, reports bbc.com .
The most curious that the “unexpected” device is running Android 5.0 Lollipop with a custom shell Z Launcher.
Nokia N1 – the world’s first tablet with a new two-way connector microUSB 2.0 Type-C. Nokia tablet is equipped with IPS LCD display, protected by glass Gorilla® glass 3. The processor is Intel® 64-bit Atom Z3580 processor with a clock frequency of 2.3 GHz, the graphics chip – PowerVR G6430. The amount of RAM (LPDDR3, 800 MHz) is 2 GB built (eMMC 5.0) – 32 GB.
Main camera 8 megapixel autofocus camera capable of recording video at 1080p. Front camera 5 megapixel. Also refers to the presence of a 3.5 mm jack for headphones, two stereo speakers, the modules Wi-Fi (802.11a / b / g / n / ac) with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0. Responsible for food trends battery capacity of 5300 mAh.
The first novelty will receive the people of China. This will happen in the first quarter of 2015. However, Nokia N1 appear in other markets. Its cost would be some $ 239 (plus taxes and subsidies).
By the way, at first presentation showed a Nokia smart desktop for Android – Z Launcher. This software is not only convenient, but also adapts to the user’s daily schedule, offering him the necessary applications in the most appropriate time. It allows the user to run the application, drawing a finger across the screen corresponding symbol. For example, a Facebook application meets the Latin letter F.
Earlier, a Finnish company finally decided to stop production of mobile devices and focus on developing mapping services HERE. In this regard, the 2014 Nokia mobile division was sold to Microsoft Corp. for $ 7.2 billion.
The “unexpected” action entitled «Nokia N1» critics already found . For example, According to leading Russian expert Sergei Korogod gadgets (Spetsizdanie iXBT) , «release tablet now on Android – a step closer to suicide. The market is saturated to the point that he was ready to crack. But analysts’ forecasts are disappointing: sales fall, because almost everyone who wanted to buy a tablet – already bought. Next fight will go either for customers buying a new tablet to replace the old or in the developing countries with their poor audience.
In addition, Nokia, apparently, has not got rid of heavy legacy as Microsoft attempts to compete with the leader, ie, iPad. The tablet looks almost copies iPad Mini convector until charging. And thus made on the platform from Intel. It does not stand out in technical terms (well at least not so far behind as before), but has a great advantage: it actively supports the Intel (rumored to compensate producers a fair amount of money the cost of devices, and in fact such support – non-market mechanisms, violates freedom competition. Something like diagram with backtracking). As to the “unique launcher” their Android platform and so very much hope that the twenty or thirty of the account will conquer the world – is naive. NTS is a good example.
We can only Nokia brand for those who know him, and who wants to once again (after all the failures) to stay with him. Are there many people who love and want to buy a Nokia tablet now with the appearance of the iPad, but on Android? I do not know, but I suspect that not too ».
