Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Many of you already know that Nokia is the leading manufacturer in the mobile industry for many, many years now. What you probably don't know is that Nokia decided to extend its business in mobile industry to create laptops and the new Nokia Booklet 3G is the first release of its kind.

The mini-laptop is powered by an Intel Atom processor, it has a 10" display and an outstanding battery life (12h). Also, it will run Windows 7 as pre-installed operating system. In terms of connectivity, Nokia Booklet 3G features 3G/ HSPA and Wi-Fi support for Internet connectivity and Bluetooth for data transfer.
The laptop also comes with HDMI port for HD video output pre-installed, a camera for video calling , integrated Bluetooth and SD card reader slot.

Newly enough for a laptop, Nokia integrated in its new product a GPS receiver with A-GPS (Assisted - GPS) which, combined with Nokia Maps can retrieve your location in a few seconds with pinpoint accuracy.

The body is not left behind either and, in my opinion, it doesn't look cheap at all. The case measures about 2 cm thickness and it's made by aluminium. The price has not been revealed yet but some little bird told me that we'll find out some more details on Nokia's World Congress in early September.
