    In the US no brand can ride off its past and its name. With enough years of bad/boring product, we will lose our loyalty or just get plain ol' tired of it. Blackberry, Nokia, Sony, Honda, Chevy, Ford, Motorola, Westinghouse, Nabisco, McDonalds. They all had their glory days. The only way they can get their mojo back is to put out something phenomenal again. Doesn't happen often. Once you lose the glory its hard to get it back. Apple basically came back from the dead several times which is rare.

    Thats why N1 is not for US, I'm sure their target markets are countries where Nokia still has a huge brand name, these are countries where Nokia could hv beat samsung in Android phones market, I know that's debatable with no proof and ppl from Us would disagree since they dont know this market, but its a fact that Nokia is a very valuable brand name known for its quality & design and I'm sure this tablet is going to be hit in china, India & some EU markets.

    Neither has Apple on their "flagship" products. Neither did Sony, Toshiba, Lenovo.... Wifi is tricky and to simply say that "they don't care" is dumb.

    Not so much in the US. I used Nokia smartphones back in 2006, and nobody I knew had any clue what they were. BlackBerry and Palm were the popular smartphones back then.
    In India only a few trusted brands are bought by people
    Nokia is #1 in India overall and is everyones fall back option if they get tired of other brands

    I wish Nokia N1 ran Windows 8.1 Pro or even Ubuntu touch instead of android
    Nokia X proved a new low for Nokia,Nokia pureview etc proved how awesome it could be
    If they collaborated with MS again,it could be the Moto-Google relationship in a way

    A windows tab wont succeed, it will fail just as Lumia 2520, and with windows 10 to come, it makes sense not to go with Windows 8.1. also W8.1 pro would have raised the hadware cost.

    This tab is perfect and can complete with nexus 7/9 at this price range. Apps would have been a key factor to choose the OS as well,
    Nokia X was a disaster because it was deliberate attempt to not compete with Lumias and hence the hardware was under powered as well. but in this case Zlauncher is a launcher running on stock android and not a forked version like Nokia X.

    As I predicted Nokia will be slapping their name on generic android products manufactured by someone else to profit off those who buy on name alone. Like Zenith and many other bankrupt electronics manufs.

    There is nothing for Microsoft to lose, Nokia is just a brand sticker now. People who buy it will be getting overpriced junk with the Nokia name.

    You're missing the point and most probably haven't really read the thread.

    Foxconn made iPhones and other premium devices. Nokia have also had full control over the design. This is hardly a case of them throwing a spec sheet and a logo at a third rate generic manufacturer and telling them to make something. They're creating a quality device by the look of it.

    This sort of makes sense - Nokia is just using their well known name out there to sell their services, not hardware. Mapping is a big one. So some third party company is making the stuff and sticking the Nokia name on it.

    It's not really a Nokia...(imho)

    Also - the tablet market is pretty jammed.

    Now if they came out with a new OS .....

    I don't understand what's wrong with everybody. It's like complaining that Ford made a van. Nokia's phone division was bought by Microsoft who now make the Lumia phones that used to be Nokia, and are now Microsoft. Nothing's changed there except the brand name, when it finally takes effect.

    As for tablets, Nokia can make anything they like - 100 years ago or more they used to be a rubber works! - and they have used Foxconn for many years, as have many other manufacturers, to make many of their mobile phones. The only surprise here is that many people on here seem to think that Nokia have always been made by Nokia, Samsung by Samsung, Apple by Apple etc. That hasn't been the case for years. As soon as most of these companies found out the Chinese could produce these things that a fraction of the price they all subcontracted to firms over there. When did you last see anything that WASN'T made in China?

    Just for good measure I just checked the country of manufacture of my Lumia 930. (Settings > Extras + Info). Guess what.

    Microsoft wanted to buy HERE. This is a fact stated by Microsoft management.

    Nokia wasnt letting HERE go and why they got away with it is because of the dominance Nokia gained in the WP space. I wonder what WP's market share would be if Nokia would have completely stopped making WP devices, or make one a year and just move on to Android. LOL...

    Take a look at this page from My Nokia Blog.



    They've retained key people from the devices unit like Axel Meyer and Sebastian Nystrom to develop this device. It's certainly a Nokia product.

    Nokia used to manufactures winter tires too but they sold that division and that didn't damage their name it enhanced it. This has nothing to do with the post it's just an interesting fact Nokian Hakkapeliitta -try using that as a name for phone !

    thats rather vague,you do know the hardware fully supports Windows 8.1 pro-intel atom z series
    windows 8.1 pro will beat android in apps,full fledged desktop software in a $250 tablet
    Lumia 2520 ran Windows RT which frankly is what was its worst con
    Nokia X was a half attempt and android ran even worse on that bad hardware,it showed the true low of nokia
    stock android or forked android,the issue is with android imho
    android 5.0 is very sluggish on my nexus 7 and bfs nexus 5

    hmm, so let me see if this is right?


    Nokia = old, dead, but beautiful and sturdy, lots of loyalty , good.

    Nokia + Microsoft = awesome, beautiful, new, underdog, good.

    Nokia + any other company/os = cheap, bad.





    who blemished the Nokia name? Nokia? Microsoft? Google? foxconn? Apple?

    Chill.. The Nokia name was given to a Chinese company for branding.. This tablet is NOT made by Nokia.. I guess if Nokia give their branding to cheap companies it will degrade their brands value..

    You know that every brand are build by a Chinese marker. Dig harder and find that Nokia create de design aprove the quality make the software and give Nokia name to foxconn and for this receive royalty fees

    Android 5.0 runs fine on nexus 9, there are known issues with nexus7, m sure nxt update would fix that, W8.1 pro or W10 "will" beat Android is a speculation, if someone had to enter/re-enter hardware market,Android is their best bet "currently", it might be laggy but has a 82% marketshare and growing that says something isnt it.

    P.S. Not at all a android sympathizer but then these are plain facts.
