Nokia Booklet with 3G Enters Netbook Market
The netbook market is on fire, providing consumers with plenty of options from Acer, Asus, HP, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, and countless others. Not to be outdone by its computer-selling counterparts, Nokia has jumped into the mini-notebook fold with the unveiling of the Nokia Booklet.
The Nokia Booklet is a far cry from the N800-series Internet tablets that we have seen from the Finnish company in the past, because it takes on a more conventional laptop-like design. If you’re looking for a portable computing solution with plenty of features, Nokia has you covered.
There are actually quite a few highlights that separate the Nokia Booklet from the rest of the netbook crowd. For starters, the 10-inch HD-ready display is partnered up with an HDMI port for video out in HD. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another HDMI-equipped netbook out there.
Further still, you get integrated 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, aGPS, Bluetooth, camera, SD card reader, and integration with Nokia’s Music Store.
Nokia plans to announce the price and launch date on September 2nd. The retail release will likely follow a few months after that, possibly in time for the Christmas shopping season.
