Now Microsoft has acquired the rights of Nokia Mobiles, however Nokia still manages to launch its first ever Android based Tablet device.

Nokia N1:

Nokia announced in previous Week about the launch of its first Tablet device, fans of Nokia welcome the announcement, however critics marked resemblance of Nokia N1 Tablet with Apple iPad mini 3, even some people called Nokia N1 a clone of iPad mini 3, but the case is not really like that, there should be something different, innovative or iteration.

To mark the difference between the two devices, we have to gone through their specs and features.

Screen and Design:

Battery Comparison:

Apple powers iPad mini 3 with a power of 23.9 Wh battery, while Nokia N1 is not any near of it, Nokia has equipped its tablet with a  18.5 Wh battery, but using Nokia N1 with Android Lollipop battery saving features, you can manage to beat iPad mini 3 I terms of more usage, though no in terms of more battery power.

OS:

So you can enjoy those options on Android Lollipop which are missing in iOS 8 like Multiple User Accounts and others.

Preference:

With such resemblance and iterations and differences, you are free to chose your own choice, however when it comes to price fact, Nokia N1 has a clear edge over iPad mini 3, as you can have Nokia N1 for $249 as compared to iPad mini 3 that comes with $399 price tag.

Price starts from as low as $399 with Wi-Fi and $529 with Wi-Fi + Cellular. iPad mini 3 was launched in an event at Cupertino, the reports marked it to get least attention from Apple’s Development Team over previous year. Comparing to iPad Air 2 which got new processor, new camera, new screen technology and other additions, while iPad mini 3 just equipped with Touch ID, it further got a new gold finish for the aluminum shell.
