Nokia to add ARM-based smartbook alongside Booklet?

Nokia ARM-based smartbook

Nokia may add a second netbook PC to its lineup besides the upcoming 10-inch Booklet 3G, according to unofficial sources from cellphone makers in Taiwan. They reported on Wednesday that the second netbook will reportedly be based on an ARM processor, like so many of Nokia's smartphones. The Digitimes insiders claimed Nokia may contract Compal or Foxconn to build a device that would fit Qualcomm's "smartbook" label but which would not arrive on store shelves until sometime in the middle of 2010.

The Booklet 3G is understood to be manufactured by Compal and should become available early in 2010. It should ship with Windows 7, support 3G/HSDPA networks and sport Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and assisted GPS. The Booklet 3G will also get Nokia's Ovi services, including the Ovi Music Store and Ovi Maps. An ARM-based smartbook is expected to have the same functionality but may cost less due to the price of the processor.
