By releasing its first Android-powered tablet N1, Nokia is set to have a comeback in the smartphone-tablet market again.
The Finnish firm, which used to be the leading phone developer around the world, lost its hold over the market, once Android-powered smartphones appeared in the market. The wide array of apps, openness and user experience of Android gained preference over Nokia's Symbian. Nokia later sold the copyright of its famous Lumia brand to Microsoft.
According to that embargo, Nokia can't sell its own branded phones till 2016. But since half of 2015 is already passed, 2016 is not far away from now, hence Nokia is gearing up for its second innings with its Android-powered devices.
Softpedia (via NPU) reported that Nokia is all set to restart its phone production and is reportedly in talk with Foxconn, a Chinese smartphone-tablet maker, which manufactures devices for Apple, Xiaomi and InFocus.
The report further explains that Nokia is targeting India, China and Europe. As part of the strategy, Nokia will unleash its global marketing campaign and official product sites by the end of the year.
Recently, some rumours suggested that Nokia will debut in the market with a phone named C1. The smartphone purportedly features a 5-inch display and is powered by an Intel-made (probably Atom series) chipset and will be backed by 2GB Ram and 32GB storage.
With an 8mp rear and 5mp front camera, C1 was claimed to run on Android 5.0 Lollipop, which explains the rumour can hardly be trusted. This is because, after 2016, Google will come up with another version of Android (probably M) while Lollipop will be no where around.
