It’s been a few months since Microsoft successfully acquired Nokia’s mobile technology division. As a result, we’ve seen a cut of 15% of Nokia’s global workforce of 18 thousand. More recently, Microsoft decided to cut the ties with the Nokia heritage by releasing the self-branded Microsoft Lumia 535.

If you thought that Nokia was but a ghost company, we’re pleased to announce that you are wrong. Nokia–the real one based in Finland–has announced a new device. This new device is a tablet that can favorably compare with the latest Nexus 9. The Nokia N1 tablet will be powered by Android and licensed by Google. This means that we will likely see Google apps pre-installed on the system (read: Google Play Services and Google Play Store). The hardware specifications are also pretty decent. The N1 will ship with a 4:3 7.9-inch screen at 2048 x 1536 resolution, a powerful 64-bit Intel Z3580 quad-core CPU, 2 GB RAM, 32 gigs of internal memory, and two cameras (8 MP rear, 5 MP front). The battery is also quite capacious at 5,300 mAh, which should be enough to play with for a while. Construction should be pretty solid thanks to aluminum used in the building process.

The Nokia N1 tablet will run the Android 5.0 Lollipop with a few software additions like the Nokia Z Launcher. Pricing is set at a paltry $249. Such specs and low price should make the Nokia N1 tablet quite an interesting choice for many. Is Nokia trying to get back to game with its new Android project? What are your thoughts?
