Nokia is well-known for its mobile devices, having been in the market for over 25 years, but now the Finnish company has decided to compete in the notebook market with the introduction of its Booklet 3G.
Let’s cut to its list of features. First off, it uses the popular Intel Atom mobile processor, ensuring a decent amount of both power and battery life — up to 12 hours is the claim though you can bet that’s with most things switched off.
Connectivity is good, as you’d expect, with Wi-Fi, 3G/HSPA and A-GPS unit built-in, and there’s also an HDMI output for connecting up to high definition displays.
There’s a 10-inch glass HD ready display and the whole unit weighs around 1.25kg and is about 2cm thin.
Is it a notebook? Is it a netbook? I’ll let you decide — Nokia makes no mention of either, though it has “the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility” according to Nokia’s executive vice president for devices, Kai Oistamo.
The detailed specifications, pricing and availability are to be announced on September 2 at Nokia World.
