Nokia N1 tablet heads to the UK and Ireland [Updated]

Back in March, we spent some hands on time with the Nokia N1 Android tablet and walked away liking the device pretty well. The big downside to the slick tablet at the time was that Nokia had no plans to offer the tablet for sale outside of China. Thankfully, Nokia has changed those plans and it has now confirmed that the N1 tablet will be officially offered in the UK and Ireland.

The N1 will go up for ordering in a few weeks and will be priced at £219. Purchases will be available via NokiaShop UK and for now, all you can do is register interest to be notified when the tablet is available. The company behind the NokiaShop is called Colourful Limited, and it claims to offer full official support and warranty repairs on the device.

We mentioned before that Nokia licenses its name and other tidbits for the N1. The tablet is actually made by Foxconn and it looks very much like something Apple would make. The N1 boasts a 7.9-inch screen and Intel Atom Z3580 processor.

It also has a reversible USB type-C connector, 32GB of internal storage and runs Android Lollipop. Nokia also licensed its Z launcher for the tablet. There is no word on the tablet expanding to markets other than China, Taiwan, UK, and Ireland at this time.

Update: Not so fast! A Nokia spokesperson told AndroidPIT that "the online store referenced in the report is not affiliated to nor authorised by Nokia. We are investigating and will take whatever actions are necessary to protect our brand. To date the Nokia N1 tablet has only been launched in China and Taiwan."
