On Wednesday, the Nokia World 09 show began in Stuttgart.
The annual two-day conference is the Finnish handset maker's chance to show off its latest products, which this year include its first netbook, the Booklet 3G, and its first Linux phone, the N900.
Nokia first revealed its Booklet 3G netbook, which will run Windows 7, towards the end of August.
However, the full specifications of the device — Nokia's first foray into the PC manufacturing business since the 1980s — were only released on Wednesday.
It was already known before then that the Booklet 3G would have high-definition video capabilities, as shown by its HDMI port and 1280x720-pixel screen resolution. The details released on Wednesday show that this HD functionality is supported by Intel's Poulsbo chipset, which makes 720-pixel and 1080-pixel video work with Atom processors — in this case, the Z530.
Another new detail is that the 12-hour battery Nokia claims for the Booklet 3G comes from a 16-cell battery, which is unusually large for a laptop.
Other specification details to emerge include the Booklet 3G's built-in accelerometer — a sensor that detects the physical orientation of the device — and the fact that the netbook's 1GB of RAM is soldered down, making user upgrades impossible.
