Nokia's N1 is ultra-light
I attended the Slush conference in Helsinki, Finland, where the Nokia's N1 tablet was launched on Tuesday. I got a demo and could play with the tablet as well. :)

Yes, it's a look-alike the iPad mini, but different.The two shades of grey are similar. It's absolutely light. I believe it's the lightest tablet so far, even lighter than the iPad mini and you can really feel the lightness immediately.

Re: Trying to stil be releavant... Kudos to Nokia
Oh, I agree.  I started with teh first Samsung Tablet that came out years ago, and from there ended up getting an iPad merely for consolidation purposes.  But to date, the bulk of my home automation, particularly my home theatre runs of a Dell Windows tablet.  Each OS has great benefits, it's really about figuring out how you use your devices and finding, as you said, the right platform and device for those needs.

@Stratustician,

One of the main appeal points for me regarding androids is that there's a version for any type of consumer. There are those that are bare bones, and those that are for power users.

I have a nexus 7 and absolutely love it. I'm an apple fan, but the nexus simply seems to fit all my needs (specially when wanting to perform more specific geeky tasks)

Re: Trying to stil be releavant... Kudos to Nokia
I agree.  As consumers start to get settled into choosing a main OS for their mobile devices, its nice to see design finally catch up for the Android side.  In the past it seemed as if Apple had the strong consumer appeal due to their innovative products, but now as the market share continues to grow for Android it's nice to see some of those innovations start to improve the market for Android devices.

Trying to stil be releavant... Kudos to Nokia
I have to say...kudos to Nokia for trying to still be relevant and a player in this highly competitive tech market.

Unlike Blackberry, Nokia is trying to innovate and yet provide a user experience that most consumers are already accostumed too, reason why adopting an android based tablet is a good move.

In fact, if they follow the same venue as HTC, to provide both an Android and Windows based tablets, the options are even better.

This is very exciting, if Nokia can focus on both innovation, and being able to integrate well with the existing ecosystems (utilizing existing platforms that consumers can use, like Chrome Cast and the like), it definitly has a shoot at both keeping in the race and be able to call a territory it's own.
