According to Nokia’s own Executive Vice President for Devices, there’s a simple reason why this company (which usually operates on the cell phone market) has decided to come up with a netbook of their own. According to Kai Oistamo, their business is connecting people – and as such the Nokia Booklet 3G was a natural evolution for Nokia. That’s actually a good reasoning, especially since netbooks are the kind of device that effectively bridge the gap between a smartphone and a full-blown laptop.
Judging from the technical specs that were divulged so far, a lot of research and planning was put into developing this device, and it’s clearly positioned as a confident step forward among the vast offerings of netbooks already available on the market. The much anticipated Nokia Booklet 3G does indeed convey the impression that Nokia has been paying good attention to what’s going on within the industry. This is a slim aluminum-cased machine with several integrated devices which aren’t always common in netbooks, including a 3G/HSPA modem, bluetooth, GPS, bluetooth… and of course wireless connectivity. Most notably, it sports a 10.1″ HD screen and HDMI port for high definition video-out.
With a little over two pounds of weight and less than one inch thick and an autonomy of up to 12 hours on a single charge, it looks as though this is going to be a brilliant netbook – although it probably won’t be one of the cheapest machines around. It will be officially presented to the public in September 2, 2009 – so if this article aroused your interest, rest assured you’ll get access to all the detailed specs and release dates very soon.
