Nokia wasn’t kidding when they said they plan on looking at the Netbook market “to see what kind of opportunity is there.”
Today, they’ve finally announced a their own 10-inch Netbook they’ve dubbed the Booklet 3G.
Nokia’s newest baby boasts a 12-hour battery life and an ultra-portable aluminum chassis. The Booklet 3G is tailored just like the company’s high-end mobile phones and has a variety of connectivity options such as Bluetooth, 3G/ HSPA and Wi-Fi. Nokia hasn’t announced whether the netbook will be running on Windows 7 OS.
The 10-inch netbook runs on an Atom Z520 processor and has an HDMI port for HD video out, a built-in camera and a convenient SD cardreader. The netbook comes integrated with Nokia’s Ovi services that allows users to access Ovi’s maps, music store and the cloud-based Ovi Suite.
“A growing number of people want the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility,” Kai Oistamo, Nokia’s Executive Vice President for Devices said.
“We are in the business of connecting people and the Nokia Booklet 3G is a natural evolution for us. Nokia has a long and rich heritage in mobility and with the outstanding battery life, premium design and all day, always on connectivity, we will create something quite compelling. In doing so we will make the personal computer more social, more helpful and more personal.”
No word yet as to how much the netbook is gonna cost but stay tuned because Nokia will be revealing more about the netbook on September 2 at Nokia World.
