Nokia Confirms Booklet 3G, Claims 12 Hour Battery Life


Rumored no more, Nokia today finally confirmed plans to release a netbook, or a mini-laptop if you'd prefer to call it that. As for Nokia, it's calling the portable PC the Nokia Booklet 3G.

The Booklet 3G weighs less than 3 pounds (1.25kg) and measures just over 2cm. It boasts a 10-inch glass HD ready display, an Intel Atom processor, built-in A-GPS (works with Ovi Maps), WiFi, an HDMI port, and an SD card reader. But the biggest spec might be the claimed 12 hour battery.

"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," Nokia wrote in a press release. "In doing so, we will make the personal computer more social, more helpful, and more personal."

Nokia said it will unveil other details, including detailed specifications, availability, and price at Nokia World on September 2, 2009.
