European mobile phone maker Nokia is to release a new Windows based laptop with built-in 3G connectivity.
Full details of the Nokia Booklet 3G are to be announced at Nokia World on September 2, but in the meantime the company has confirmed it’ll offer up to 12 hours of battery life and weigh just 1.25KG.
“A growing number of people want the computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility,” said Kai Oistamo, Nokia’s Executive Vice President for Devices. “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.”
The device will also feature an HDMI port for HD video out, a front facing camera for video calling, integrated Bluetooth and SD card reader.
