One tablet that’s been on our radar but relatively elusive for quite some time now has been the Nokia N1. The device was launched to mixed reception months ago by the remnants of Nokia (the parts of the company that didn’t go to the Microsoft Devices and Services group during the buyout), with some loving the sheer promise of it and others denouncing it as an iPad mini clone. Now we’ve had a chance to form an opinion of our own, having just had a chance to use the tablet for a good bit, so here’s our initial Nokia N1 hands-on video!
As people who make a living off of testing out different mobile devices, we have high standards for a good tablet, and we’ve been wondering whether the N1 can quite match these. We’ve been skeptical, though we haven’t had a chance to even touch the device until now, so these really are as initial as impressions can get.
Watch the video below, then let us know down in the comments section what you think of Nokia’s N1: could it possibly be a success, or is it going to be droned out in this tablet-infested world? We’ll have much more N1 coverage coming soon as we get one in for review at some point this year, so stay tuned for more.
