On Monday Nokia officially announced its new 3G booklet. The nicely shot video above, along with the list of specs, has now got us itching to get our hands on one of the new mini-laptops. Since the announcement of Nokia’s partnership with Intel, there have been whispers about a Nokia netbook coming to the market. This has now been officially confirmed, with Nokia looking to connect people in new ways and ‘make the personal computer more social, more helpful and more personal’, according to Vice President of Devices Kai Oistamo.
At the moment, there is a lot to be expected from the Nokia 3G Booklet, with more details set to be confirmed in the first week of September at Nokia World. If Nokia can successfully provide everything they promise in this slim-line netbook, its sure to take the market by storm. Here’s a rundown of the specs confirmed so far:
- Hot-swappable SIM card slot – a new feature for netbooks, will work well in combination with the built-in HSDPA.
- 12 Hour battery life – a very impressive battery life, especially considering the 3G booklet comes with a 10.1” HD ready glass screen.
- WiFi & Bluetooth
- 1.25KG – nice and light, very portable at this weight
- Intel Atom Processor – speed still to be confirmed.
- HDMI port for HD Video Out.
