Irony: n. an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
Computer and software maker Apple has been leaving its mark all over the smartphone market for the last couple of years. And rightly so having delivered what was possibly the most sorely needed function to smartphones – usability.
Now smartphone company Nokia is dipping its toes back into computers with the Nokia Booklet 3G mini-notebook. Hopefully with Nokia’s strengths they can provide the two most needed functions to netbooks, anywhere connectivity and all day battery life. So far the first reviews of the Booklet 3G are looking pretty good.
Let’s face it, after having the run of the phone market for years Nokia has made a meal of smartphones, I know, my last four phones were Nokias. Apple on the other hand believes that the netbooks are too much of a compromise and the iPhone or MacBook Air is all you need to stay connected and portable. The huge volume of netbooks that have been sold tell a different story. I, for one can’t wait to see what happens as we take another step closer to convergence.
Introducing the Nokia Booklet 3G – The new Nokia Booklet 3G mini laptop comes with built-in 3G and Wi-Fi and offers up to 12 hours of battery life to keep you connected all day long.
