The bottom line
Top notch build quality
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.

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. [...]
“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.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
