    @shadowjk, couple of corrections on the N1.

    Lenovo isn't the manufacturing partner. Foxconn is.

    As for the design (N1 hardware and Z Launcher software) that was done by us here at Nokia. I should know, I worked on it.

    The timing isn't correct. I don't have the official no ber, but it's closer to two years from the time the sales closed.

    Sttm, the N1 is a tablet, not a phone

    I see a lot of "ignorance" right now about Nokia. So here are a few factoids:

    - Nokia sold its mobile handset business to Microsoft in 2013
    - Nokia was already in dire straits when Elop came on board, although he certainly came on board just to sell it to MS
    - Nokia sold its *brands* - Asha, Lumia & Nokia to Microsoft (but only for the handsets)
    - Nokia launched the N1 Tablet, only its availability, for some reason, is limited to China
    - The N1 is basically a nice looking version of many, many iPad clones out there
    - The "new" Nokia is just part of Nokia Networks
    - Nokia has a non-compete with Microsoft, it won't be able to manufacture phones of any sort under the Nokia brand until the end of 2015.
    - The "new" Nokia is actually called "Nokia Technologies", it is mostly an R&D company
    - Old Lumias = Nokia
    - Newer Lumias = Microsoft
    - Latest phones from Microsoft no longer carry the Nokia Lumia

    @LemmingOverlord, are you saying that every Android tablet with a 7" screen is an iPad clone?
  • nikon133 - Monday, March 2, 2015 - link

    In all the honesty, N1 does look more similar to iPad Air than your average Samsung, Sony, Asus...
    Just to make it clear, I don't think Apple (or any other company) should have rights to basic shapes and materials... so I am happy that N1 does look as it does, because I prefer this design to Samsung's, and if I were on market for Android tablet, N1 would top my list.
