In a surprise move, without much hype before the announcement this morning, Nokia entered the Netbook market. Called the Booklet 3G, the 10.1-inch machine is powered by an Intel Atom processor, and includes 3G connectivity and hot-swappable SIM cards which should allow you to surf the net using the same plan as your mobile. They’ve also included A-GPS with a copy of Ovi Maps for firing up a location based map on the fly, a 12-hour battery life, WiFi, an HDMI output, webcam, SD card reader and Bluetooth. Form factor wise were looking at what appears to an Apple inspired 2.7lb aluminum body that measures just .78-inches thick. There’s no official word on a price or launch date, but I’d expect it well in time for holiday shopping.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
