Nokia's first exclusively branded Android tablet the Nokia N1, has now expanded beyond China, and could be launched in some other countries shortly.

According to a PhoneArena report, that in turn quotes a Chinese source, Nokia N1 has been launched in the Taiwanese market and prospective buyers of the tablet can purchase it starting May 2015.

As per the PhoneArena report, Nokia's N1 slate will be accorded a price tag of roughly $260 (£169), and the slate is highly expected to be released in some other countries as well.

To purchase the slate in China, people would need to register online.
