What we did know was that the machine would be Atom-powered and Windows-based. We knew that we were looking at a 10-inch HD-ready screen, 3G wireless, Wi-Fi a hot-swappable SIM card and integrated A-GPS as well as HDMI out. Nokia today revealed some more information on the Booklet, including the device's scary price.
As far as specs go, you've got an Atom Z530, 120 GB hard disk, 1 GB RAM, Windows 7, integrated Ovi Suite (for maps, calendar contacts, media etc), a 16-cell battery that promises a 12 hour battery life, Bluetooth, 3 x USB 2.0, an SD card reader, a 10.1-inch LCD (1,280 x 720) and of course, a 1.3MP camera.
As for that scary price, you're looking at €575 ($810) before subsidies. That said, it's expected to be heavily subsidized by carriers, so maybe it won't end up costing an arm and a leg if you're willing to get it on contract. No word on a release yet but it'll obviously be after October 22. So, anyone interested? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for this on-contract? Let us know in the comments below!
One thing is, who needs 3g in their laptop? This seems to be a tool to salesman who don't have normal internet connection all the time. So it has to be considered as an special professional tool. Not the one you should look for when you are looking for small laptop for normal surfing by using normal vireles connections.
The only hardware difference I see is a GPS and Accelerometer and I don’t think that’s worth the premium.
I don’t think is even upgradeable.
Good luck to Nokia
