Nokia Booklet 3G is really real, as seen on camera

Not that we thought it was a fabrication this morning, but Reuters has managed to snap a few pictures of the Nokia Booklet 3G "mini laptop" to assure us that there is indeed at least one physical unit in existence, located at the company's Helsinki headquarters. As seen in another photo, the model sports the blue lid, and just so you're absolutely clear how a 10.1-inch netbook sizes up to an actual phone, we've got a side-by-side with an E71. Looks like we'll have to wait until Nokia World to figure out what Intel Atom processor they've got inside that makes sense to pair with a HDMI output, however.
Update: Nokia might be mum on the issue, but Intel tells Pocket-lint that it's got the 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 chipset, which isn't exactly known for its HD video prowess but can technically do up to 720p. No word on any other technology that make the HDMI port more logical, but if there is was, it's probably not coming from NVIDIA or Broadcom -- both companies have denied involvement with the Booklet.
