Nokia announces laptop offering - the 'booklet'
Nokia has announced its first laptop, the Nokia ‘booklet’ – a Windows based mini laptop to go on sale in PC World.
The manufacturer, which was previously rumoured to have been working on a laptop device, claimed that the new product range will ‘satisfy a need’ in the operator channel. It also said the move was an important part of plans to become a ‘mobile solutions’ company.
The Nokia Booklet 3G is powered by an Intel Atom processor, has 12 hours of battery life and has a range of connectivity options including 3G/HSPA and Wi-Fi.
Nokia’s executive vice president for 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.’
