    Well, apart from the whole iPad thing... At the end of the page they could have animated the box opening with scroll. What a delightful opportunity lost.

    In short, Nokia's first device after Microsoft is an iPad mini clone that runs Android.

      To their defence, Nokia had the curvy/bubbly industrial design pattern way before Apple did – unlike all Samsung cases.

    Wow. I wonder how much the lead designer has been paid to do a blatant copy.

    Almost embarrassing.

    Type over image

    Oops, somebody's either been a bit sloppy or under pressure to put this online asap

    So disappointing. All the design talent moved to Microsoft I see

    Definitely space in the market for this product. Isn't the best android mini tablet still the 2013 nexus?

    It's not an Apple product so it's automatically terrible according to DN.

    Make your life better by opening up inspector and turning off their ridiculous 0.075em letter spacing. Makes it so much nicer to read.

    They should have stolen more from Apple, including the site image trick Apple does to prevent blurry images.

    Man, people are quick to jump on the bandwagon. I think it's a pretty good attempt at making something original (when you take hardware and software as a whole product) in a world where, let's be honest, every product is apparently an iPhone clone.

    I wonder how it handles.

    as much as people want to say 'ooh, the draw a letter to search thing is natural and organic', I feel like writing letters as a skill isn't something to pin a UI thing to.......

    I just scribbled 'B' for blue, the app I'm looking for has a blue icon....heh

    The complex gesture of writing vs single tapping an icon? How about not having a ridiculous grid of icons like iPhones and organizing your homescreen a bit so you can find what you want.

    To me its like two chefs are given a recipe for French fries. Both cook it well, but since the first chef delivers it faster, the French fries from the second chef tastes the "same".

    But just because it tastes the same doesn't mean the second chef tried to imitate the first. It means that he also knew how to fry them well.

      That metaphor works for many cases, except for when the 1st chef makes insanely successful, popular and inventive French Fries and the 2nd chef waits 4 or 5 years to start cooking his.

      It's almost impossible that the 2nd chef wasn't imitating the 1st. It doesn't mean they're not tasty, but it's unfair to claim they're being inventive.

    What are they smoking in that boardroom? Nokia was once known for epoch-defining products – people would even describe them as creative and experimental. What happened? Something has gone incredibly wrong in their product decisions and this blatant ripoff is a sign of how desperate they've become to catchup.
