NOKIA BOUNCES BACK WITH LAUNCH OF ANDROID TABLET

HELSINKI (AP) — Nokia is back in the fray.

The new offering operates Android instead of the Windows software that Nokia adopted on its cellphones when it started a strategic partnership with Microsoft in 2011.

The 7.9-inch N1 tablet will first be available in China in the first quarter of 2015 with an approximate price tag of $250, before being introduced to other markets.
