Nokia announces Android 5.0 Tablet for $249

TLDR - specs listed below 

Oh the tears we shed for Nokia , Oh the hate we built on Microsoft for erasing the name from Lumia , oh the sadness we all had about the once great...wait a minute ..i believe that its a little too early to cry because Nokia is back (atleast not in full form that is - Nokia is rumored to have sold some brand licences to Foxconn , which is a famous equipment manufacturer that makes devices for many companies including "Apple" ) Nokia has unveiled their new surprise - a Android tablet called the Nokia N1 at a special event in London . The company , which was stripped to the bone and re assembled using Microsoft badges is no longer a handset company but they do have services and in this case a Tablet which means that Nokia might continue in the consumer computer department in the future as well . The Nokia N1 tablet is also the first device to carry a N badge after the coveted N Series went bust with the Nokia N9 . The Tablet , unlike the plethora of Microsoft devices it spawned is running Android out of the box , and in this case - Android 5.0 Lollipop , the Android lollipop is left basically untouched and the three distinct touch hardware buttons remain as they are supposed to be (unlike the Nokia X series) but like all Android OEM's Nokia has added its own UI which is now called Z launcher which is also available as a third party download for other Android devices via playstore . The tablet features a 7.9" IPS display with a resolution of 2048x1536 which is the same as the iPad Mini with retina display . The resulting resolution gives 323 ppi . The rest of the tablet looks very promising as well , the tablet has a 64bit Intel Atom processor (check specs below) and a Wolfson DAC audio amp for music output .The tablet also has a 5mp front facing camera and a rear facing 8 mp camera that sits in the top left corner of the somewhat iPad looking aluminium chassis . The tablet is priced at $249 and it is said to be available early Next year.
