Nokia enters netbook segment with Booklet 3G
Back in March, we reported about Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo saying that the company is actively looking at the netbook market. Now, after 25 years as the mobile industry pioneer, the Finnish giant has jumped into segment with the new Windows-based Nokia Booklet 3G.
 
Powered by the efficient Intel Atom processor, the Nokia Booklet 3G delivers impressive performance with up to 12 hours of battery life, enabling people to leave their power cable behind and still be connected and productive. Delivering the rich experience of a full-function PC inside an ultra-portable aluminum chassis, the new mini-laptop weighs 1.25 kilograms, measures slightly more than 2 cms thin, and has the features one would expect from the world's leading mobile device manufacturer. 
 
A broad range of connectivity options - including 3G/ HSPA and Wi-Fi - gives consumers high speed access to the Internet, including Nokia's broad suite of Ovi services, and allows them to make the most of every moment and every opportunity.   
 
 
"A growing number of people want the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility," said Kai Oistamo, Nokia's Executive Vice President for Devices. "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."
 
The mini-laptop also comes with an HDMI port for HD video out, a front-facing camera for video calling, integrated Bluetooth and an easily accessible SD card reader. 
 
Other premium features include the 10-inch glass HD-ready display, which when coupled with the ‘Intel Atom’ processor points to the inclusion of Nvidia’s Ion chip on board. The integrated A-GPS works with the Ovi Maps gadget to pinpoint your position in seconds and open up access for a truly personal maps experience. 
 
The Nokia Booklet 3G also brings a number of other rich Ovi experiences to life, whether its access and playback of millions of tracks through the Nokia Music Store, or using Ovi Suite to sync seamlessly from your Nokia smartphone to your mini-laptop.
 
Further information, including detailed specifications, market availability and pricing, will be announced at Nokia World on September 2. Till then, here’s a video of the new ‘Booklet’ for you to enjoy and check out the gallery below for more pics:
