It’s not a rumor any more.. Nokia Booklet 3G is born
Saturday, August 29, 2009
The rumor that Nokia is about to take on the notebook market has been floating about for quite some time and now the manufacturer has revealed their first project. Actually, it is a 10.1-inch display netbook, called the Booklet 3G that, similarly to most other devices in the same class, will come equipped with an Intel Atom CPU.
The device itself looks quite appealing with a slim, aluminum body in several different colors. It will feature an HDMI port and even more, its glass-covered display is advertised as HD-Ready, although we still don’t have a clue about its native resolution or whether or not HD video playback will be supported. The Booklet 3G will come packed with all standard features like video call camera, SD card reader, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. And not last, the manufacturer claims its battery will be powerful enough to keep it alive for no less but the impressive 12 hrs on a single charge.
Given Nokia’s extensive experience in the mobile communications sector, it’s no wonder the Booklet 3G will feature 3G/HSPA support to allow you to remain connected to the Internet even when you’re on the road. The device will support hot swapping of SIM cards and you will also have a built-in A-GPS and Ovi Maps in case you need navigation functionality. Finally, the Booklet 3G will come preloaded with various Ovi apps, covering services like email, contacts, calendar, file sharing etc.
As a whole, the Nokia Booklet 3G looks like a high-end netbook, similar to the Sony Vaio P, so we suppose it will hit the shelves with a decent price tag. More details about its other features, retail price and release date are still unavailable, but the manufacturer has promised to reveale them on 2 September at Nokia World.
