Nokia Booklet 3G Announced
The rumours have been there for quite sometime, but it was never revealed or announced anywhere that Nokia was actually working on a 3G netbook. After staying in the mobile industry for over 25 years, Nokia finally steps into the PC market!
Nokia just announced that they are working on a Netbook of their own, which will be Windows-based netbook called as Nokia Booklet 3G.
The specs released by Nokia for their upcoming Booklet 3G are very interesting. This Booklet 3G will run Windows 7, featuring a massive 12-hour battery life, 10.1-inch HD display, HDMI output, 3G/HSPA ready, WiFI, swappable SIM card, webcam, Bluetooth and a built-in SD card reader. It also has an onboard assisted-GPS with Ovi Maps so that you never get lost.
Ofcourse its a surprise to all of us that why suddenly Nokia seems interested to enter the PC market. Here’s the official answer by Kai Oistamo, Nokiaâ€™s Executive Vice President for Devices:
â€œA growing number of people want the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility. 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.â€
No official details have been revealed for now, but expect more coming this September at Nokia World 09 with details on price and availability dates.
