WOW…This is just wow !
Nokia has revealed the specs for their much awaited Mobile + Netbook Combo called the Nokia Booklet 3G – source
These are the signs to come – just other day I was talking to my friend about a device that would do everything for you, from making phone calls to browsing Internet to watching video to giving presentations. This Nokia Booklet 3g is probably the closest to this all-in-one gadget !
Here are some of the highlights of Nokia Booklet 3g :
- Intel ATOM processor
- 10.1” inch Screen
- Microsoft Windows Operating System
- 3G and Wi-Fi connections
- Nokia Ovi suite of services
- 12 hours of battery life (wow)
- in-built HDMI support
- in-built GPS receiver
- Aluminium Chassis
- hot-swappable SIM card slot
The Nokia Booklet 3G sure does pack a punch !
Nokia was expected to launch this kind of device sooner than later, as it was under pressure due as it was loosing the market share in mobile space to its competitors – LG & Samsung.
According to Gartner, worldwide mobile phone sales fell 6.1 per cent in the second quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2008 – although smartphone sales were up 27 per cent. Nokia’s market share fell from 39.5 per cent to 36.8 per cent, as Samsung and LG gained share. (source)
Additionally, Dell, has recently revealed its plans to enter the smartphone market. Nokia is the leader in the smartphone market but even there it is facing stiff competition from RIM’s BlackBerry and the Apple iPhone.
The price point of this device will be released within a weeks time, but I really hope this device costs sub 25000 rupees, which will make it really attractive to masses.
I am really excited about this device, and I am sure our readers will be as well !
