Nokia introduces Booklet 3G ‘mini laptop’

Posted: 24 August, 2009 in Gadgets & Toys, Tech & The Net

Nokia enters the netbook market. Nokia calls it the Booklet 3G, I’d say it look or concept is a lot like the Foleo  … perhaps done better. I am not saying it’s done right yet because I still need to dig up the specs and the price.

Engadget reported it to run Windows7 which to me running the Booklet would be the same as ant netbook. I’ll stop here and add more comments as more information about this Nokia mini laptop surfaces …

Nokia introduces Booklet 3G 'mini laptop'

Nokia rocked the world this morning by introducing its spin on the laptop, called the Booklet 3G. If you’re the rude sort you could call it a fancy netbook, what with its Atom processor and 10.1-inch display, but that screen is higher res than your average Eee, and it also sports integrated 3G wireless and a hot-swappable SIM card, so it’s definitely trying to define its own niche. It looks to be running Windows 7, which isn’t particularly netbooky, and also has integrated A-GPS with a copy of Ovi Maps, HDMI output, a rated 12 hour battery life, and the usual Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, all in a 2cm (.78 inch), 2.7lb aluminum body that’s understated, sophisticated, and should make most Nokia fans very happy — Nokia fans who are looking for a tiny laptop, anyway. No word on anticipated release date or price just yet, but we’ll be learning more at Nokia World 09 on September 2. We promise not to make too many Foleo references.
