After reports that the first flash sale in China for the Nokia N1 saw 20,000 units being sold in 4 minutes, it appears as if similar success was seen enjoyed by the Nokia-designed and Foxconn-manufactured Android tablet in its second flash sale on Thursday.
Unlike the previous report, no numbers about how many units or how much time it took accompany the second Nokia N1 flash sale, beyond the claims that the inventory was sold out in just a few minutes but took longer than the last sale’s four minutes and 2 seconds.
NokiaPowerUser credits a tipster with the swift-selling figures for the second Nokia N1 tablet flash sale.
The next flash sale for the Nokia N1 is on January 22, and there is no word yet on how many units will go on sale. Nokia announced the N1, its first Android tablet, back in November with a suggested retail price of $249 (roughly Rs. 15,400).
The tablet is initially only available in China, with Foxconn licensed to manufacture, distribute, and sell it. It has been priced at CNY 1,599 (Rs. 16,000 approximately), and is expected to reach other markets, starting with Europe, soon.
The Nokia N1 features a 7.9-inch (2048×1536 pixel) IPS LED-backlit display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, and is powered by a 64-bit 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor (4 cores, 4 threads) coupled with a PowerVR G6430 GPU and 2GB of LPDDR3 (800MHz) RAM. It sports 32GB of inbuilt storage (non-expandable).
The tablet bears an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with 1080p video recording, and a 5-megapixel fixed focus camera. Connectivity options on the Nokia N1 include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/n/ac with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB with reversible Type-C connector, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Nokia N1 tablet weighs in at 318 grams, and measures 200.7×138.6×6.9mm. Also onboard are 0.5W stereo speakers, and a 5300mAh battery. For sensors, it sports a 6-axis gyroscope and an accelerometer.
