The new Nokia N1 is being compared to the iPad Mini 3... and winning

Apple Should Be Scared

Nokia is making a comeback. But not with phones - with tablets. Specifically, with the Nokia N1, perhaps the most premium Android tablet on the market.

It’s still a little well known fact, but it’s a fact nonetheless: Nokia is making a comeback. But not with phones - with tablets. Specifically, with the Nokia N1, perhaps the most premium Android tablet on the market.

It’s interesting, considering only a few years ago Nokia was in bed with Microsoft. Flash forward to this year, and it seems as though Nokia is happily engaged to Android. And its no wonder - Android is the biggest mobile operating system, surpassing Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s iOS.

For those paying attention, you might recall that the Nokia N1 actually came out at the end of last year, and that’s true - but only in China and Taiwan. But now it’s finally making its way west, listed as “coming soon” on Nokia Shop UK.

Really, people are equating this tablet to that of Apple’s iPad Mini 3. In fact, they are saying this is as close as it will ever get, in Android form.

There are some striking similarities. Fully clad in aluminium, at 6.9mm thick, it has a lightning fast quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor that has been clocked at 2.3Ghz, which is ridiculously fast for any mobile. On top of that, it has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and sadly no microSD card slot.

Boasting a 7.9-inch screen with a 1536 x 2048 resolution, and it runs (obviously) a customized Android 5.0 with Nokia Z launcher. The primary snapper has 8 megapixels while the secondary has 5 megapixels. It has an impressive 5,300 mAh battery.

When initially announced last year, the price tag was around $249, which is so affordable its mind boggling.

For those wondering there is no cellular version, but actually, for its cost, that’s really not a sticking point.

And the cost, you wonder? It hasn’t been announced just yet (just like Nokia hasn’t said exactly when it will arrive), but when initially announced last year, the price tag was around $249, which is so affordable its mind boggling.

I really hope the price stays this low for all these specs. The design is flawless, and Apple better be scared: Nokia got its groove back.
