The Android Lollipop 5.0 powered tablet makes an appearance outside of China on the Mobile World Congress show floor -- and it's really good.

BARCELONA -- The Nokia N1 is an Android 5.0 Lollipop tablet that's only available in China, but the Finnish company was showing off the product at its booth here at MWC.

The aluminum rear is "sand blasted" for a great finish.

Internally, the N1 is powered by a 64-bit, 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 CPU and PowerVR G6430 GPU. It has 2GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. There's no microSD card slot, however.

While the tablet runs stock Android, it's loaded with Nokia's Z Launcher, which has a few cool features.

For one, you can scribble a letter to quickly search for the app you want.

The Z Launcher's algorithm will also automatically push apps to the front of the screen depending on your activity. For example, if you like reading news apps on your morning commute, these apps will make their way to the top, to be replaced by productivity apps later in the day when you're at the office.

The N1 sports a reversible USB socket, which means you never have to worry about which way is the right way up when plugging in cables any more.

There's a rear 8-megapixel camera, while the front facing shooter is 5-megapixels.

The tablet's pretty slim at just 6.9mm thick.
