Nokia N1 is a 7.9″ Quad Core Intel Tablet Running Android 5.0 Lollipop

Since Microsoft bought Nokia’s smartphone division, the company is not allowed to sell smartphones until after the end of 2015, but that does not mean Nokia is standing still, and they’ve just unveiled Nokia N1 tablet based on Intel Atom Z3580 quad core processor, with a 7.9″ display, 2GB LPDDR3, and 32GB eMMC. The tablet runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and it’s also the first device I’ve seen with a micro USB 2.0 type C reversible connector.


Nokia N1 specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Atom Z3580 (Bay Trail-T) quad core processor up to 2.33 GHz (burst frequency) with PowerVR GC6430 GPU up to 533 MHz
  • System Memory – 2GB LPDDR3L @ 800 MHz
  • Storage – 32 GB eMMC 5.0 flash (no micro SD slot)
  • Display – 7.9″ IPS display, 2048×1536 resolution, 4:3 aspect ratio, Gorilla Glass 3.
  • Audio – 3.5mm audio port, 2x 0.5W speakers, digital MIC, Wolfson WM8958E audio codec
  • Connectivity – Dual band 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • USB – 1x micro USB 2.0 type C reversible connector
  • Camera – 8MP rear camera with auto-focus, 5 MP front-facing camera
  • Sensors – 6-axis Gyro & Accelerometer
  • Battery – 5,300 mAh (18.5Whr) battery.
  • Dimensions – 200.7 x 138.6 x 6.9 mm
  • Weight – 318 grams

Beside running Android 5.0, Nokia’s tablet with also feature with Nokia Z Launcher app, which just landed on Google Play, but is incompatible with all of the 30+ devices I have registered on Google Play, apparently because of my location. The tablet will come with Google Play Store in markets where Google Play is available.

Nokia N1 is not available right, but it will start selling in China on February 19, 2015, before before being released in Russia and Europe. Price will be about $249 before tax. Visit Nokia N1 microsite for more details.

I thought the reversible USB connector part of the 3.1 standard, not 2.0 type C


Whilst I applaud the Nexus9 and this (hopefully others to follow) making screens in the 4:3 ratio (far better for browsing IMO), having made a paper template, 7.9″ diagonal is far too small! It needs to be closer to 9″
At potentially £250 its a tough sell against the Hudl2 at £130

That ‘F’ on the launcher screen is for… fail?
Also the display resolution isn’t 2048×5316 for sure, maybe 2048×1536?


[…] Jolla has now unveiled the Jolla Tablet running the company’s Sailfish OS, and just like Nokia N1, powered by a quad core Intel processor. Instead of directly using a pre-order system like with the […]


Lots of innovation of cpu, number of cores, etc, but there doesn’t seem to be much in terms of new functionality. For example:

1) supporting dual boot Windows 8 & and android.. like the Ramos i10 with ConsoleOS

2) e-ink display on back of tablet (like the yotaphone)

3) AM/FM Radio Receiver, FM Transmitter, Software Defined Radio (SDR). Seriously, no tablet has an am radio, what’s the deal?!

4) HDMI input and/or Built-in ATSC Tuner for Over-the-Air (OTA) HD and PVR recording (probably would need external OTG drive)

5) Induction charging (like Aikun)

6) More sensors! Developers will come up with uses when the hardware is there. I’m always surprised how even the basic sensors are often not included (ex. gyroscope, nfc, bt4-ble, ir transmitter). (see the tricorder, sdr, and ramen spectrometer)

7) Also, whatever happened to the promise of screencasting and wireless docking? Wasn’t the Wilocity/AirTame/WiGig 802.11ad technology supposed to be out this year?

8) World Cell support – not just gsm, but also supports u.s. lte (AWS 1700/2100 fdd (band 4/15)), and world lte tdd

9) Screen projector / keyboard projector (like Fuffr , novasentis)
