The Nokia N1 has created quite the buzz today around the internet today. That is because the high-flying tablet was sold out within 4 minutes of release in China, 20,000 units were sold overall. When you bundle top of the line specs with a low price point, its bound to sell; just look at the OnePlus One.
The Nokia N1 is essentially a “poor man’s” iPad Mini 3. It comes in at almost half the cost of the Apple device and features better specs. This lead to such a success in China, where the device was priced at CNY 1599, which equates to around $260 USD. This is near the rumored price of the Nokia N1 going for $249.99 in the United States, more so now that the price in China was announced.
If you were looking to snag a Nokia N1, more units will be available starting on January 15th. It is unknown how many will be made available. The device has also yet to have a release date announced for the United States and other countries outside of China. Seeing the success the tablet has had already in China, look for a release date to come soon.
The Nokia N1 features a 7.9 inch display with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 (324 ppi). It comes with Intel’s mobile processor, the Atom Z3590 which is clocked at 2.3 GHz backed up by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM. Android 5.0 Lollipop rounds out the device on the inside, which is all encased by a slim and sleek metal chassis.
