After an official unveil in November 2014, the Nokia N1 is now up for pre-order in China. The tablet is listed for 1599 Yuan ($256), and will be available in the country from January 29.
Features a unibody aluminium design and Nokia's Z Launcher atop Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Nokia N1 certainly stands out from other Android slates in this category. The hardware on offer is also very enticing for the price, as the N1 comes with a 7.9-inch IPS LED display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536, 64-bit quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, 8 MP camera at the back, 5 MP front shooter, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/n/ac with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0, micro-USB with Type-C connector (an industry first) and a 5,300 mAh battery.
Thanks to a brand-licensing deal, Foxconn was able to secure the Nokia name for the tablet. All aspects of the device, from manufacturing and distribution to sales and service support will be handled by Foxconn. No details were revealed as to when the tablet will be available in other territories, but the N1 is expected to make its way to European countries sometime next month.
