The Nokia N1 tablet was announced not too long ago, but Sony didn’t provide clarity on the launch markets all that much. That changes today with the company announcing that China will be the first market to get the tablet, starting January 7.
Pricing details haven’t been disclosed at the moment, but it has already been announced to be costing $250, so there won’t be any surprises in store for us. The Nokia N1 is produced by Foxconn in the region and it’s only natural that China is among the first markets to get it.
Nokia should gradually bring the device to other markets as well, given the brand recognition it enjoys globally. After the Microsoft acquisition, Nokia is strictly not allowed to launch smartphones under its brand until 2016. But we don’t think there’s any particular restriction on selling tablets.
The tablet comes with a 7.9 inch 2048 x 1536 resolution display, an Intel Atom Z3580 64-bit quad core chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM and Android 5.0 Lollipop with Nokia’s proprietary Z Launcher. Hit the Weibo link below for more details on availability.
