Nokia today announced the Booklet 3G, a mini-laptop PC running Windows. The Booklet features integrated 3G HSPA data connectivity, video calling, A-GPS, and Ovi services. Other features are similar to most netbooks, including Wi-Fi, 10-inch display, HDMI for HD video out, Bluetooth, and an SD card reader. The device weighs 2.75 pounds and is 0.78-inch thick. Using an Atom processor, Nokia claims the Booklet will last up to 12 hours on one battery charge. Nokia will announce availability and pricing on September 2.

12hrs battery life, ?REALLY?

I find this 12hr battery life very, very ?questionable? And of course the article didn't bother to say if the 3G is tri-band, or Europe's stupid 2100 band.

If it is targeted to Mobile Operators and it allows for video calling, I would hope it also allows for regular voice calling (and not just VOIP).
