Nokia N1 is a fascinating tablet released some years ago, in 2014, coming with a big 7.9-inches capacitive touch-screen, a high-tech Quad-Core processing unit running at 2300 MHz, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front camera.

Nokia decided to equip this tablet using a Intel Atom chip, backed up by a high speed 64-bit Quad-Core CPU clocking at 2.3 gigahertz and a huge 2 GB of RAM. To handle graphic rendering, the Nokia N1 also has a PowerVR G6430 graphics processing unit speeding at 600 MHz. This tablet comes with a huge 32 GB internal storage memory and although it doesn't count with an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to store lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

This tablet is slim and stilized, being just 0.27" thick. Though the Nokia N1 is only 7.9" long, it's still able to fit a a 7.9 inches screen. Nokia has made a very nice optimization job making the Nokia N1 as lightweight as 11.22 ounces. Regarding its materials, this tablet is majorly made with Aluminium, giving it a premium feel. Nokia just offers this tablet in color gray.

The Nokia N1 includes an awesome 2048 x 1536 7.9" screen, making everything look completely perfect. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

This tablet doesn't use a SIM card, because it isn't a GSM enabled tablet.

This tablet features two cameras, an 8 MP back camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. It is also able to capture videos in Full HD 1920x1080. In addition, the camera counts with geo tagging and auto-focus.

This tablet also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

The Nokia N1 packs a high capacity 5300 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this tablet with a great battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it begins to last shorter, while with this big battery you will probably buy a new device before that becomes an issue.

Nokia is offering this tablet for around 370 dollars, quite close to other same level tablets. No matter if you are looking for a gamer device, want this tablet for work or will use it as a social tablet, you will definitely be very pleased with it.
