Nokia announces Booklet 3G netbook for the PC market

After more than 25 years of being the leader in mobile industry, Nokia is now venturing into a new line of devices; the netbook.

Named as the Nokia Booklet 3G, it will be Nokia’s first Windows based netbook to enter the PC market.

Powered by the Intel Atom processor, the Nokia Booklet 3G can live for as long as 12 hours before the need to recharge, enabling people to leave their power cable behind and still be connected and productive.

Nokia Booklet 3G weighs 1.25 kilograms, 1.99cm thin, and has a broad range of connectivity options – including 3G/ HSPA, aGPS, Bluetooth 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.

The mini-laptop also comes with an HDMI port for HD video out, a front facing camera for video calling, integrated SD card reader. Other premium features include the 10-inch glass HD ready display and an integrated A-GPS which, working with the Ovi Maps gadget, can 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, to the cloud.

Availability and pricing will be announced during the upcoming Nokia World event on sept. 2nd. For now, let’s check out the promo video of the Nokia Booklet 3G.

  • CFX

    is there any words on the GPU?
    i remember the Atom couldnt really handle HD playback that well

    • mster

      An atom CPU can handle HD playback…if the correct software and hardware are used…..My cousin has a PC with an atom 1.6 GHz CPU…but use an intergrated NVIDIA 9400 GPU along with 2GB of RAM and the PC plays HD without a problem, however only on players like VLC and KM Player does it do so……on Windows Media Player…playback is choppy and video and audio are off sync..but this could be a codec problem

      however that PC runs Win XP and I’m not sure how WIN 7 will handle HD playback….

      • CFX

        in your cousin’s case i would say that it’s because of the hardware HD rendering. Does your cousin install CCCP on this netbook? if so, then the playback is being handled by 9400M, so there should really be any framedrops

  • When Nokia gonna send u and play with it? review review review~ 😛

    heya all, haha looks like even nokia’s jumping into the netbook frenzy field

    I speculate the price should be around RM 1.5k range, unless it’s running NVIDIA ION instead of intel 945 IGP for 1080p HD display.

    10 to 12 inch glossy LCD, 1024×600 or 1280×800 resolution. 1gb DDR2 533mhz
    160gb HD ? haha SSD too pricey

    hmmm… unless they use geforce/ion solution full HD will be stuttering like mad lo
