Nokia has released detailed specs of its Booklet 3G mini-laptop.

The Booklet runs off Windows 7 and an Intel Atom processor, with 12 hours of battery life. It is 19.9mm thin, weighs 1.25kg and comes in three launch colours – black, white and blue.

It features inbuilt WLAN and WWAN internet connectivity anywhere a WiFi or cellular network connection is found. It also offers 3G/ HSPA connectivity with swappable SIM slot, SD card reader, three USB ports and HDMI out slot.

Integrated Nokia services are included such as Ovi Suite 2.0, Nokia Music for PC, Ovi Maps, Nokia software updater and Social Hub which keeps track of social network feeds in one spot and can also send SMSs. Microsoft Office is also included.

The Booklet offers 1GB of RAM and a 10.1 inch display with accelerometer, as well as a 1.3 megapixel camera with integrated microphone.

Nokia chief executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said: “Nokia aims at reaching the many, not the few, with our rich portfolio of services. We are doing this through an increasing number of open partnerships with world leaders in many fields.

“We are proud to lead the charge in smartphones and beyond as manifested in the Nokia N900 and Nokia Booklet 3G, two great examples of how the world is changing and Nokia is driving this change.”

Nokia also demonstrated its N900 3G internet tablet, confirming it would offer voice calls, Skype and Google Talk. It is expected to retail at around €500 before taxes and subsidies and will be rolled out from next month.
