Nokia to enter the laptop market


Nokia is to enter the laptop market with the release of the Windows-based Nokia Booklet 3G.

Powered by the Intel Atom processor, the device comes with up to 12 hours of battery life, weighs 1.25kg and is slightly more than two centimetres thick. It includes connectivity options such as 3G/HSPA and Wi-Fi.

The mini-laptop also comes with a port for HD video out, a front facing camera for video calling and an SD card reader. Other features include a 10-inch glass HD ready display and integrated A-GPS.

Nokia executive vice president of devices Kai Oistamo said: “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.”

Further information including detailed specifications, market availability and pricing, will be announced at Nokia World on September 2.
