Nokia, the company that still exists after selling its handset division to Microsoft (now Microsoft Lumia) has just announced a tablet called the Nokia N1. This is the first Nokia device after Nokia sold its handset division to Microsoft in April 2014. Recently, Microsoft recently rebranded its Nokia Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone to Microsoft Lumia. The first Lumia device without the Nokia branding is the Microsoft Lumia 535.
