The Nokia N1 went on sale today with the Finnish company in China, and it exhausted the first batch of 20,000 units in record time. It just took 4 minutes and 2 seconds to finish all that inventory.
It seems, Nokia selected to go the flash sale strategy, possibly inspired by Xiaomi’s success with this route. Another chance to buy the N1 tablet will come on 15th January, in the event you’re in China. Else you will have to wait for some more time, as the N1 is not yet accessible anywhere else.
Aside from managing such excellent sales, the Nokia N1 is busy beating the competition in benchmarks. Yesterday we saw it beating the iPad Mini 3 in AnTuTu, and today again Apple’s small tablet has had the same destiny in a different benchmark.
589 frames were scored by the N1 in GFXBench’s Manhattan test, compared to 553 frames for iPad Mini3. In T-Rex, the score was 1,437 to 1,271, while in the 1080p T-Rex offscreen evaluation the Nokia N1 got 1691 frames whereas 1598 goes to iPad Mini 3.
