Nokia N1 Tablet Review

April 8, 2015

This post originally appeared on our sister site Android Authority.

The bottom line Pros Cons Fantastic hardware Top notch build quality Smooth performance Familiar, uninspired design Poor camera quality Speaker setup is dual mono, not stereo

With its fantastic build quality, and hardware that allows for a consistent, smooth performance, the Nokia N1 tablet is certainly a great addition to the tablet space, with the only real hole being the lack of Google apps and services in its current iteration that is intended for the Chinese market.

Delta detours on Nokia tablet, will give pilots Surface 2 instead

September 27, 2013

But in the wake of Microsoft’s purchase of Nokia and perhaps other considerations, Delta has reportedly decided to go with Microsoft Surface 2 tablets (due out next month) instead.

The rumored Sirius tablet has never been officially acknowledged by Nokia and its expected release is not assured.

"In less than two years, Delta cockpits will be paperless as we roll-out the Microsoft Surface 2 tablet running Windows 8.1 RT as our company-issued device," the airline told its employees recently, according to a report yesterday by WindowsITPro.

"The 757/767 fleet will be the first to make the transition with the 777, 747 and MD88 as fast followers. [...]

Rumor: Nokia’s Windows RT tablet is called the Lumia 2520

September 23, 2013

“Nokia Sirius = Lumia 2520,” wrote Twitter tipster evleaks on Saturday, referring to the firm’s much-rumored tablet project.

According to The Verge and WinSuperSite, the tablet features a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display, a 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm 8974 ARM processor and will run Windows 8.1 RT. The model will apparently sell for around $499.

Nokia is expected to announce the tablet, alongside the widely-publicized Lumia 1520 phablet, at an event in New York on October 22.

Microsoft apparently tried to kill Nokia’s tablet but it could still launch next month

September 18, 2013

After months of rumors, leaked benchmarks and purported images, the 10-inch ‘Sirius’ tablet looks likely to launch later this year and could even debut at a mysterious October 22 event which Nokia has been talking about on Twitter.

The company posted an image of two men skiing alongside the words “save the date: 22 October” on Tuesday, and reporters have since speculated that the event could see the debut of the 10-inch ‘Sirius’ tablet and Nokia’s other secret product – a 6-inch Lumia 1520 phablet.

Nokia’s first tablet was supposedly meant to debut in September but it appears that Microsoft’s incoming Surface 2 [...]

Former Nokia boss Stephen Elop: The next Microsoft CEO?

September 3, 2013

Elop left Nokia to re-join Microsoft as Executive VP of Devices and Services following Microsoft’s deal to buy the handset business for $7.2 billion.

The former Nokia chief executive remains the bookies’ favorite to replace Steve Ballmer, who retires in 12 months, with Ballmer himself doing little to pour scorn on the idea in an interview with The Seattle Times.

“Stephen will go from an external [candidate] to internal. The board will continue to [look at] all appropriate candidates through that process,” said Ballmer, who made similar comments to The Verge.

Elop is now in his second stint at Redmond having been in charge [...]

Rumor: Nokia to introduce Windows 8 tablet in September

August 12, 2013

Citing an anonymous tipster who claimed to have seen Nokia’s product roadmap,  Nokiapoweruser reports that Nokia will announce a first tablet – with data from AT&T – in the last week of September.

The model will most likely run Windows 8.1, which would perhaps not be much of a surprise considering the firm reportedly previously cancelled plans to launch a Windows RT tablet.

But that’s not all that is going on the Finnish firm. The Lumia handset maker is also apparently planning to announce a phablet in the first week of November and could announce dual-SIM Lumia phone – which would be handy for business users – in [...]

Nokia to launch Windows 8 tablet next month?

August 1, 2013

WPCentral received an anonymous tip on Thursday with the source claiming that Nokia is to hold a press event in New York City on September 26 and 27.

With the Finnish handset maker having recently introduced the high-end Lumia 1020 smartphone and mid-range Lumia 625 phablet, the article suggests that the firm could take the wraps off its first tablet.

If that were the case, the tablet would more than likely run Windows 8 rather than Windows RT.

The ARM-powered version of Windows 8 was widely-publicized to be running on a prototype Nokia tablet for some time, with a recent benchmark seemingly confirming the existence of a Nokia tablet with Windows RT and [...]

Microsoft reportedly tried to buy Nokia’s hardware biz

June 20, 2013

Citing “people familiar with the matter”, The Wall Street Journal claims that the two companies met on numerous occasions to discuss a deal, but say that an agreement couldn’t be reached because the firms disagreed on price.

Microsoft was also said to have concerns about Nokia’s “slumping market position”.

Nokia has worked closely with Microsoft on Windows-powered smartphones over the last 18 months, and has reportedly tested an own-brand Windows RT tablet in the past.

Nokia exec hints at future tablet plans

May 15, 2013

Speaking at the unveiling of its Lumia 925 smartphone yesterday, a senior Nokia executive suggested that tablets are a regular topic of conversation at the firm.

“We're very interested in tablets and that's an area we're looking at,” Jo Harlow, Nokia’s executive VP for smart devices, told CNET. The exec added that she didn’t have any product news “I can share”, which doesn’t necessarily mean things are not going on behind the scenes.

There has been a number of Nokia tablet rumors since the start of the year, with the most reliable report claiming that the firm made a 10-inch Windows RT tablet prior to the launch [...]

Is Microsoft testing Nokia’s Windows 8 tablet?

October 4, 2012

The Finnish handset manufacturer has long been promising to launch a Windows 8 tablet, and was rumored to be announcing its first model at its Windows 8 Phone event in New York last month.

That move never transpired but the tablet may have already been developed, if a purported image if anything to go by.

Discovered by tech website Know Your Mobile, the picture shows a tablet bearing the Windows RT standby screen and with a design similar to that of the Lumia 800 smartphone.

However, while the photo may look dubious, there is perhaps more truth in the report that partner Microsoft is now using this Nokia Windows RT tablet to test Windows RT-based [...]
