Nokia Mobile Phone

Nokia used to be the winner in the industry of electronic devices has just been through a phase of most thick along its history.

Starting from the sales division “handset” to Microsoft so that brands, such as Nokia and Nokia Asha Lumia, else should be released.

Don’t stop there, Microsoft decided to meld the Nokia name and chose to release these products with the name Microsoft Devices.

A mobile phone or tablet device that is circulating currently marketed under the name Asha or Lumia, without the name of Nokia.

Some Nokia initiatives to reach markets outside of the ecosystem, such as the Nokia X that utilize the Android operating system, also suspended.

However, it is not mean the end of the company’s origin Finland. They make a surprise with the back into the mobile market with the announced N1,

A cell phone that is run by the latest Android operating system, namely Lollipop.

Here’s the rebuttal of the presumption that Nokia has ended. “They are seriously wrong,” said the head of Nokia products Sebastian Nyström, in nutshell presentation in 2014 Slush event held in Helsinki, Finland.

The use of the Android operating system is indeed so it was a surprise, as during this time a loyal Nokia with operating system Windows Mobile, while the Nokia X initiative that has already stopped it was only open to the ecosystems outside of Google.

Lost handset division also forced Nokia to cooperate with Foxconn in the production line.

Nokia also understands electronic industrial pole of the world now have already shifted toward Asia with a release date pegged the quarter I-2015, more correctly, launched in China prior to the Chinese new year.

The predicted future strategies are effective in boosting sales of products that will be released at a price of 250 u.s. dollars.

With a selling price of 250 u.s. dollars, the price of N1 is indeed more affordable compared to products from Apple, which is iPad Mini 3, which both have a span of 7.9-inch screen and sharpness of 2048 x 1536 pixels.

iPad Mini 3 sold for $399. When juxtaposed to be difficult to differentiate the two products, because both have a similar design, the loudspeakers under the hole and button sounds and earplugs writer on the side.

It’s just that, with its thinner N1 6.9 millimeters compared to the iPad Mini 7.5 millimeters thick, 3.

Working with Intel, 64-bit processors have the N1 with the four-speed core 2.3 gigahertz and 2 gigabytes of memory. One of note was an 8-megapixel rear camera is not too good, but it could catch up to high definition detail.

Just plug the USB Thing recently introduced Nokia is the use of a USB plug type C can be well-thumbed, in contrast with the current USB plugs that use only one hand.

Although paltry, this feature has not been found in any electronic device. Application Launcher Z Nokia-made Launcher will be the companion to every owner of N1.

This launcher is a simple operation since applications often run always appear in front, for shouldering other applications also can write letters on the top of the screen.

Currently, Z Launcher free download already in Play Store for other Android phone users though not close the possibility for the owner of the N1 Launcher service to use other applications.

Nokia also ascertained, he brought HERE Maps, navigation services are no less than ours, i.e. Google Maps.

Excellence owned HERE Maps offline operation is making it easier for those in areas beyond the reach of cell signal as long as the download map files before.

Sales of N1 in China in February 2015 will be deciding whether the Nokia embraced the strategy of premium goods at affordable prices would be accepted by the market.

This is the opportunity for Nokia to return its pinnacle of glory of their return even though it wasn’t easy considering there have been many a reluctant champion of the slides, like Xiaomi or Samsung.
