Nokia N1 has been launched: Is it an iPad clone or?

Nokia N1 tablet

(As) technology giant from Finland is now back without Microsoft! Nokia can not produce smart phones before the end of 2016, due to agreements with Microsoft, but it looks like they must produce tablets. And that is precisely what they have done! Now they are trying to regain the market as well as extending their brand to other areas, such as tablets. Many believe nevertheless that Nokia is far from past greatness.

Nokia N1: A great tablet or an iPad clone?

Any talk about a “Apple-inspired design”, but others simply chatting about an “iPad clone”. Today, we compare the two tablets! 🙂

Nokia N1 vs. iPad mini 3: a copy or?

When it comes to appearance, the two tablets, of course, very similar: both have rounded edges, aluminum chassis and camera buttons and ports on the (almost) same spots. But Nokia’s tablet is thinner and lighter than the iPad mini 3: it weighs 318 grams and measuring 200.7 x 138.6 x 6.9.

Both tablets have a 7.9-inch screen with the same resolution (2048 x 1536 pixels) and same pixel density (approximately 324 dpi). The screen on the Nokia N1 is, however, fully laminated, which means that there is no air between the glass and the display panel. Apple’s latest iPad Air Edition, iPad Air 3, otherwise a fully laminated screen.

Finally, Nokia N1 Android 5.0 (Lollipop), and it has an 8 MP main-, as well as a 5 MP front camera, Intel Atom Z3580-chip, 32 GB internal memory and 2 GB of RAM.

Nokia N1 is one of the world’s first Android-powered tablets with the new Type-C-contact for Micro USB. This means that the USB cable connector can be rotated in both directions ?

Cheaper than iPad mini

According to Nokia’s press release, Nokia N1 will cost under $ 249 (about 1700 dollars) in China – before charges and taxes. The tablet will only be put up for sale there, but Nokia is planning to expand sales.
