Nokia’s hot-selling N1 tablet will go on sale again on Thursday
Nokia surprised the whole mobile industry when the Finnish telecoms giant unveiled its first device post Microsoft’s buyout of the company’s Devices & Services unit. The Nokia N1, a tablet that many criticized for looking too much like the Apple iPad, has some great deal of specs and is even sold at half price as the latter.
In selling these $258 slates, Nokia had to adopt Xiaomi’s hunger marketing scheme which includes placing a limited number of units for sale whereby a lot of potential customers with a number much wider than the available products are allowed to register for the sale.
In the January 9th flash sale, the numbers weren’t believable as Nokia sold out 20,000 units of the tablets in just four minutes. During the second sale on January 15th, Nokia was reported to have sold a large amount of the devices under similar record time even though much details weren’t made known this time around.
On January 22nd (Thursday), Nokia has promised to place another set of the tablets on sale. Though the campaign will be available only for Chinese customers, users are asked to register at n1.zol.com in order to participate.
Here’s a rundown of what the Nokia N1 offers for 1599 Chinese yuan($258):
