Nokia Looking To Bounce Back With iPad Like Tablet
Nokia have launched a new product that they hope will help restore the brands reputation. Nokia were once one of the most respected mobile phone manufacturers in the world and I suppose they were once upon a time the Apple of the mobile industry. Everyone wanted the latest Nokia phone. Th Nokia N1 Tablet was launched on Tuesday and the company are intending it to compete with Apple’s iPad Mini.
The aluminum-cased N1, which runs on Google’s (GOOGL.O) Android Lollipop operating software but features Nokia’s new Z Launcher intelligent home screen interface, will be in shops in China in Q1 of 2015 for an estimated price of $249 (about £160) before taxes. The device will be available in other markets at a later date.
Nokia’s Sebastian Nystrom told Reuters “With the agreement with Microsoft, as is customary, we have this transition and we can’t do smartphones … We have a time limit. In 2016 we can again enter that business, It would be crazy not to look at that opportunity. Of course we will look at it.”
