Nokia has revealed more information about its first netbook computer, the Booklet 3G, at Nokia World in Stuttgart, Germany.

First, the bad news: the price is a hefty €570, or approximately $810 USD.

(It will probably be subsidized by carriers.)

Now the good: Nokia claims it will have 12 hours of battery life, sport a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, Windows 7, Wi-Fi and a built-in, hot-swappable SIM card slot for 3G access.

The company says the Booklet will measure 0.78-inches thin and will come in black, white and blue colors.

It's said to have a "fanless design," which should be interesting for such a thin, compact device.

More specs and a picture of the three colors, after the jump:

  • 1GB of DDR2 RAM
  • 120GB hard drive (1.8-inch, 4200RPM)
  • 10.1-inch LCD (1,280 x 720 resolution)
  • 16-cell user-removable Li-ion battery rated for 12 hours
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • Assisted-GPS
  • 1 HDMI, 3 USB 2.0, SD card reader
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Integrated Ovi Suite
