If you're a fan of Netbooks, and also a fan of Nokia, you'll soon be able to indulge your preference. On 2 September 2009, Nokia plans to release availablity and pricing details for their new netbook called the"Booklet 3G"
Yes, Nokia is bringing out its own kind of Netbook, and even though it may look like a regular netbook, it will carry the classy, smooth design we're used to see from Nokia.
The Booklet 3G will be Windows based and powered by the popular and efficient Intel Atom processor with a whopping 12 hour battery life. This means people will be able to leave their power cables behind a little more often, without losing connectivity.
Weighing only 1.25 kilograms, this new lightweight plans to pack a significant punch with its highly portable alluminum casing. It's little more than 2 centimetres thick.
Connectivity options include 3G/HSDPA as well as Wi-fi, offering users high speed access to the internet.
The device features a HDMI port enabling HD video out, a built-in camera for video calling, bluetooth and SD card reader. Featuring a 10-inch glass HD ready display and a built-in A-GPS (which works with the Ovi Maps gadget), pinpointing your exact position takes only seconds.
We cannot really be surprised by this move, considering that Nokia is one of the world's leading providers of connectivity. Considering that Nokia is probably one of the most well known names in the world today, consumers should be able to look forward to be able to add to their list of gadgets the new Booklet 3G.
Nokia seems to be upping their game every time a new product is released, and we expect pretty much the same this time. Of course consumer expectations will likely be high with this new addition to their product line, but if Nokia continues to deliver the high quality we've grown accustomed to over the years, I'm sure it will be a hit with users.
