Nokia is diving headfirst into the world of PC manufacturers as they have just announced the release of their own netbook, the Nokia Booklet 3G. With over 25 years of experience in the mobile industry, Nokia is now attempting to carry it’s success over to the PC world with this new endeavor.
“A growing number of people want the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility,” said Kai Oistamo, Nokia’s Executive Vice President for Devices. “We are in the business of connecting people and the Nokia Booklet 3G is a natural evolution for us. Nokia has a long and rich heritage in mobility and with the outstanding battery life, premium design and all day, always on connectivity, we will create something quite compelling. In doing so we will make the personal computer more social, more helpful and more personal.”
Of note is the alleged 12 hours of battery life Nokia says the Booklet 3G is capable of. This type of battery life would put the Booklet 3G up there with other netbooks, so it will be interesting to see if the battery life lives up to the hype.
Full specifications and pricing for the Booklet 3G are slated to be released at Nokia World next week.
