The company took the Chinese social network Weibo to make the announcement. Within a year of selling its handset and services business to Microsoft, Nokia has again entered the mobile devices segment by unveiling a new tablet N1 in partnership with Taiwanese company Foxconn.

The device N1 has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It comes with a 5300mAh battery and 8-megapixel rear camera and 5- megapixel front camera.

Nokia's first tablet since sale of its devices business to Microsoft in about USD 7.2 billion in April this year is built on the latest Android platform Lollipop.
    
Foxconn, which also makes Apple iPhones, will be responsible for full business execution, from engineering and sales to customer care, including liabilities and warranty costs, inbound IP and software licensing and contractual agreements with third parties. Nokia has extended its brand name and some of its patent technologies for the product.
    
To begin with, the N1 tablet will be available from the first quarter of 2015 in China for USD 249 before taxes and gradually in other markets.
