Nokia Announces N1 Android Tablet

N1

Simplicity and design at the heart of Nokia’s first brand-licensed product 

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced the N1, the first Nokia-branded AndroidTM tablet. The N1 offers the innovative, predictive Nokia Z Launcher interface, and a carefully crafted industrial design by Nokia with a focus on simplicity. The N1 will be brought to market in Q1 2015 through a brand-licensing agreement with an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partner responsible for manufacturing, distribution and sales.

“We are pleased to bring the Nokia brand back into consumers’ hands with the N1 Android tablet, and to help make sophisticated technologies simple,” said Sebastian Nyström, Head of Products at Nokia Technologies, who announced the N1 at the Slush technology conference in Helsinki. “The N1 has a delightfully intuitive interface and an industrial design to match it. This is a great product for Nokia fans and everyone who has not found the right Android tablet yet.”

Consumers use and manage a large set of applications in their digital lives. The N1 makes that easy with the Z Launcher, which allows users to scribble a letter or two to find their content quickly. Over time the Z Launcher learns what applications are in use, and predicts and highlights the applications consumers are expected to want based on time of day and location.

The industrial design of the N1 is deliberately developed to match the elegant simplicity of the interface. It has a unique one-piece aluminum design with a soft finish in both Lava Grey and Natural Aluminum colors that make it stand out from other tablets. The 7.9″ laminated display sits in a 6.9mm thin and light design that makes the device comfortable to hold even with one hand. A 2.4Ghz Intel© AtomTM quad-core processor provides great performance for the Android Lollipop operating system on the N1.

The N1 is planned to be available for purchase in China in Q1 2015 for an estimated USD 249 before taxes, with the anticipation of expanding sales to other markets.

In addition to the Nokia brand, Nokia is licensing the industrial design, Z Launcher software layer and IP on a running royalty basis to the OEM partner. The OEM partner is 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 3rd parties.

The N1’s industrial design and Z Launcher application originate within the Nokia Technologies business, which is focused on strengthening Nokia’s industry-leading innovation portfolio through patent, technology and brand licensing.

Highly Automated Driving (HAD) from HERE

HERE powers majority of new cars unveiled at Paris Motor Show

here-auto-feat1

Paris – As the Paris Motor Show gets underway this week, carmakers from around the world are launching a number of new makes and models most of which have one thing in common – they have in-dash navigation powered by HERE, a leader in location and mapping.

HERE is in more than 50 of an estimated 62* new car models being presented at the Paris Motor Show this year. One of the reasons carmakers choose HERE is that we have – and continue to develop – the best digital map of the world. The HERE map is of truly automotive grade quality, meaning that it is fresh, accurate and reliable.

HERE is also mapping to an incredible level of detail and precision, which we believe is necessary as cars become increasingly connected, and driving increasingly automated, during the next few years. As the only dedicated location company with global reach in the market today, HERE is developing powerful services to support multiple global automotive partners in that evolution.

Today, for example, HERE is providing: over-the-air map updates to keep in-car navigation always fresh; local search capabilities to find the nearest parking garages, gas stations, restaurants and other places drivers may want to stop; real-time traffic information to help drivers beat congestion; mobile applications that connect seamlessly to in car systems and offline capabilities so that routing and other services work even when cars aren’t connected.

“We are proud of the work we are doing together with automakers to boost in-car innovation,” said Bruno Bourguet, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development at HERE. “As cars get increasingly connected , carmakers not only leverage the world’s most precise map data that we collect, but also our location cloud, providing always fresh and seamless navigation experiences inside and outside of the car.”

*Note: HERE is present in more than 50 of the estimated total of approximately 62 new commercially-available and concept cars – from around 25 marques – being showcased in Paris. The estimated total of 62 excludes models without in-dash navigation. Today, our maps are in more than 50 million cars around the world. In the first half of 2014 alone, more than 6 million cars globally shipped with HERE on board, including models from BMW, Daimler, FIAT-Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.
