The Nokia N1 has been a resounding success in China, and up until now, the tablet was only available in the country. Just recently, it has been launched in Taiwan. Retailing at 8,199 New Taiwan dollar (about RM970), it seems to be priced slightly higher than its earlier price tag.
Hardware-wise, the Nokia N1 is powered by an Intel Atom Z3580 2.3GHz quad-core processor (the very same chipset found in the top-of-the-line ZenFone 2) paired with 2GB of RAM. The display, on the other hand, is a sharp 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 resolution IPS display.
In the camera department, there is an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP fixed-focus front-facing snapper. Other specifications include 32GB of internal storage, Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box with the Nokia Z Launcher running on top of it, and a USB Type-C connector.
When the Nokia N1 was first launched in China, as many as 20,000 units of the tablet were sold out within four minutes (and two seconds). Not only is this a very impressive reception, it shows that consumers are still fond of Nokia.
That being said, the Nokia N1’s affordable price tag that offers plenty value for money could be the main reason why it is selling so well. Seeing how it is priced slightly higher in Taiwan, only time will tell if Nokia’s tablet will be well-received there as well.
