OK Nokia, we’ll stop laughing about your multimedia computers. A few years ago Nokia started referring to its phones as multimedia computers and we all chuckled but today it’s launched an actual computer. The Nokia Booklet 3G is a Windows-based, netbook-style device that packs and Intel Atom processor and weighs 1.25 kilograms.
The Booklet’s aluminium body houses a 10-inch glass screen (HD Ready), an SD card reader, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, HSDPA (3.5G), Wi-Fi, an HDMI port for HD video out and a front facing camera for video calling. According to Nokia the Booklet will provide 12 hours of battery life, which means you have plenty of time to browse the Web, navigate home and make a few video calls.
Nokia adds that the Booklet will be able to access services such as the Nokia Music Store, and using the Ovi Suite be able to sync seamlessly between a Nokia smart phone, the Booklet and the cloud. Further information, including detailed specs, availability and pricing, will be announced at Nokia World on the 2nd of September, which we’ll be attending, so we can tell you more then.
