Wow, it looks great I think I will replace my girlfriends Toshiba NB100 netbook with this. Looking forward to detailed specifications, but I think it will not differ much from standard, Atom based netbooks.
Battery life is really awesome and built 3G/GPS makes it stand out among other netbooks.

Intriguing. I really hope they make will make some progress with their windows software then

What really makes me wonder, though, is why they are announcing so much before Nokia World. First the gigantic leak about the Maemo Nseries device, now this offical announcement with a commercial video. Does that mean their PR department is really leaky or do they have so much in store to spread some news beforehand?

Thumbs down Windows ?

Nokia is putting alot of efforts on QT in other product segments.

I simply hope their software stack is written in QT (Trolltech), not that i'm fond of that framework... but, it would make it portable enough to move away from windows once they can

There are a handful of nice MID/Netbook orientated Linux distros (Jolicloud/Ubuntu Remix or whatever the name is, and others) that would make a nice replacement !

Not like all the others...

Two big differences on this one that make it very compelling...

1280 x 720 resolution screen. That 1024 x 600 is getting old.

12 hour battery life. In fact it can last quite a bit longer if you happen to be using the HDMI and shut off the internal screen.

No fan

Can they effectively dissipate the heat without a fan? How does that work, is the case metal?

This looks great. Hardware that competes with Apple but actually smaller. Maybe this will prod Apple into making a small laptop (no the Air is not a small laptop). Anyway I think I'll get one if it's not overrpriced, but I'll install OS X on it I think.

Wow

I knew Nokia were going to make a netbook, but damn, I never expected it to be pretty.
Since it has an HDMI output and "HD" display I'm guessing it either has a special chipset to handle the HD media or it's based on NVidia's Ion platform.
I'm waiting to hear word on pricing but if this has a decent price tag I may have found my new netbook.

With a design like this, Nokia is Apple's pendant right away. Pity it doesn't run Linux.

Takes less than 60 seconds to boot up from cold.
I'd be moderately impressed with 6 seconds, but 60?

Why boast about it? Nokia don't seem to know what they're doing. Again.

Does this have a optical drive? If not, is one provided as a optional accessory? Also give info on the RAM. Hope this is not lacking in RAM like their phones?

1. Itīs not a symbian device, should not be here!
2. Itīs just another netbook / notebook, just like the ones from Dell and HP, at least, with the same things inside.
3. Whatīs the price of that? Hp sells HP 2530p for 600 - 700€...
