Nokia Introduces the 3G "Booklet" Netbook
By , Last updated on: 12/3/2014


Best known as the company that made your cell phone five years ago, Nokia is now entering the very active netbook market with a mini-notebook of their own. The adorably-named Nokia "Booklet" offers a fairly robust array of specifications, the most interesting of which is the integrated 3G connectivity that would allow it to access the Internet anywhere, at all times, much like an iPhone.

It's likely that the Booklet will ultimately be paired with a wireless plan in the same way Web-enabled cell phones are, though it's not clear which provider, be it Verizon or AT&T, will be behind this project. The Booklet is set to debut officially in early September, at which point we might discover who is backing its 3G data plan, as well as its pricing and availability.

Specs-wise, it's pretty good looking. It has a 10.1-inch LCD display, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor, HDMI output for best-quality high-definition connections, and is very svelte. It weighs only 2.7 pounds and has a thickness of just over a quarter of an inch. In addition to 3G connectivity, the Booklet also has "A-GPS," the kind of global positioning technology found in cell phones. It's not the full-fledged GPS found on GPS receivers.
