Nokia enters the netbook market

Nokia-Booklet-3G-camera This morning I stumbled upon a blog post on the Nokia blog that unveiled the upcoming Nokia Booklet 3G, a Windows-based netbook powered by an Intel Atom processor, that promises a 12h battery life. Wow, that’s impressive, if true.

As it’s a device by Nokia it has WiFi and 3G/HSPA support and hot-swappable SIM card functionality. It also has assisted GPS on board. All in all the Nokia Booklet 3G looks pretty cool for a netbook and has all the features you can dream of, but I am pretty sure this will have its price. I don’t think that this new netbook will be available for anything less than what a full-sized notebook costs at the moment.

It would be nice if the mobile network companies would consider bundling a subsidized Nokia Booklet 3G with a affordable 3G data plan.

What do you think about this bold move by Nokia? Do we really need another brand of netbooks? And do you believe Nokia can compete with the more established netbook manufacturers?


One thought on “Nokia enters the netbook market

  1. Personally, I don’t think Nokia entering netbook’s market will change it, or cause revolution of any sort. I guess it’s just looking for a new market, checking if the brand name is enough to win customer. All in all – having more players on the same market can’t be bad thing in itself – customers have bigger choice, and companies are more willing to put prices down and making their products better than the competiontion.

    Would I buy Nokia netbook? Knowing my long and happy history with Nokia phones – given two machines in roughly same price, I would go with Nokia. Yes, call me a fanboi omg 😉
