Nokia Booklet 3G gets official

I didn’t expect Nokia to join the netbook bandwagon since they’ve been touting the N97 as a handheld personal computer. But it doesn’t hurt to have one more competitor in this segment so we’ll surely see the Nokia Booklet 3G soon enough.

Aside from sporting a 10.1″ screen and HDMI output, the Booklet 3G will also have 3G/HSDPA ports with hot-swappable SIM card and assisted GPS so you can run Ovi Maps on the mini laptop.

The biggest advantage I guess would be the 12-hour battery life that Nokia claims it can squeeze off of a single full charge. Now that’s gonna break Asus’s record with the 1000HE.

The mini laptop will be powered by an Intel Atom (the Z series I assume) and will run Windows 7. Wonder what happened to their Moblin plans. As for the price and the rest of the specs, expect the full details during the Nokia World 2009 on September 2.

See the promotional video here. (Update: the video indicates it will be made of aluminum with chiclet-style keyboard, weighs at 1.25kg, under 20mm thin, WiFi and Bluetooth. This is not going to be cheap (Nokia calls it a mini laptop and not a netbook). Could be north of the price of the N97.)
