The news from Stuttgart just keeps on flowing, with Nokia also revealing the unashamedly long specifications list to its hotly-anticipated Booklet 3G. Moving forward, the company will focus on "phones, smartphones and mobile computers," with this here netbook being the first major entrant into that final category. The biggest news is probably the half-day (12 hours) battery life, though we're understandably curious to see how that holds up under real-world testing. The machine will also ship with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, Windows 7, WiFi and a built-in, hot-swappable SIM card slot for 3G access.

The whole thing will measure just 0.78-inches thick and will ship in black, ice (white) and azure (blue) motifs, though we're most interested to see just how toasty this thing will get given its "fanless design." Other specs include 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 120GB hard drive (1.8-inch, 4200RPM), integrated Ovi Suite, a 10.1-inch LCD (1,280 x 720 resolution) and an almost unheard of 16-cell Li-ion battery that's user-removable. Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Assisted-GPS, HDMI, USB 2.0 (x3), an SD card reader and a 1.3 megapixel camera will also be present, and the inbuilt accelerometer should make for some unique add-ons. We're still searching for an exact release date, but Anssi Vanjok made clear that the €570 ($810) asking price is apt to be heavily subsidized by carriers across the globe. Still, $810 for a netbook? Ouch.
