Nokia does mobile. And mobile comes in all sizes these days, including netbooks. So now Nokia does netbooks. Its Booklet 3G netbook is powered by an Intel Atom processor and has a claimed battery life of up to 12 hours.
Those lugging the thing around will be glad to hear it weight a mere 1.25Kg and – as you’d expect from a Nokia product – can connect anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal.
“After more than 25 years as a pioneer and leader in the mobile industry, Nokia will bring its rich mobility heritage and knowledge to the PC world with the new, Windows-based, Nokia Booklet 3G,” an official statement said.
“A broad range of connectivity options includes 3G/HSDPA and Wi-Fi – giving consumers high speed access to the Internet, including Nokia’s broad suite of Ovi services, and allowing them to make the most of every moment and every opportunity.”
The device’s features include:
* 10-inch glass HD ready display
* Aluminum chassis
* Form factor that’s slightly more than 2cm thick
* An HDMI port for HD video out
* Front facing camera for video calling
* Integrated Bluetooth
* SD card reader
* Integrated A-GPS.
Further information, including detailed specifications, market availability and pricing, will be announced at Nokia World on September 2.
