Nokia Enters PC Market


Nokia issued a press release today announcing their foray into the PC market. The Nokia 3G Booklet, “a mini laptop,” features the following functionality:

  • Intel Atom processor
  • 12 hours of battery life
  • 3G/ HSPA and Wi-Fi
  • A-GPS for navigation and geotagging

Sounds like a compelling device!

It’s interesting that a handset manufacturer is crossing over to the laptop market, and clearly the reverse strategy is also in effect. In a related article, Lorraine Luk of the Wall Street Journal discusses how PC-makers such as Dell, HP, Acer, and of course Apple have recently forayed into the smartphone market.

Nothing like a down economy to spur innovation and more choices for consumers! Let’s sit back, relax, and enjoy the mobile computing race!

  1. Thanks for your article. I also believe laptop computers have gotten more and more popular these days, and now tend to be the only kind of computer included in a household. The reason is that at the same time they are becoming more and more inexpensive, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they can be as powerful as desktop computers through just a few in years past.
