Last Friday’s rumor of a Nokia Netbook was confirmed in short order by a press release on Nokia’s website announcing the Nokia Booklet 3G. The Nokia Booklet 3G will feature a 10″ screen, a Windows OS and claims a 12 hour battery life that will convince you to leave your power cord at home.
Commenting on the divergence from tablets and phones into the Netbook marketplace Kai Oistamo, Executive VP for Devices at Nokia called the Nokia Booklet 3G a, “natural evolution for us [Nokia].”

The sleek netbook, which Nokia refers to as a mini laptop, comes in white, black and blue and looks impressively small for a device that claims 12 hours of battery life. Given the HDMI port and numerous mentions HD video in the press release it wouldn’t be too much of a reach to assume that the Netbook will come with some form of graphics accelerator to provide users with a rich HD experience.
