According to German economy magazine WirthschaftsWoche, Nokia plans to unveil ultra-portable Sub-Notebooks this year.
According to WiWo's information, it is planned to use Symbian and Nokia's Series 60 to power these devices.
So far, Nokia denied a response.

Well, that's an interesting development. While Microsoft expanded into Nokia's domain - the mobile phone market - now Nokia might expand into Microsoft's (previously Psion's and Palm's) market - the "handheld device" market. Okay, the good old Nokia Communicator was available long time before Microsoft seriously entered the PDA market and the first series, the Nokia 9000 was an innovative concept. However, as time goes bye Nokia isn't known for handhelds and I wonder if this can become successful businesses for Nokia?

UPDATE: In reaction of the WiWo article (and the The Inquirer reported the same), a Nokia spokesman disagreed with the articles and assured that Nokia continues to concentrate on mobile phones and smart phones only! (Source:

And, a Google translation of the German article is here:

The translation is not perfected yet: "This experienced the restaurant week from enterprise circles." :roll:

With the Nokia PDA-Phone-TV 7700 not ever being released to the consumer market, I almost expected something like this. Well, not exactly a subnotebook but another handheld device to counter HP's iPaq 6300 and other devices of the like.
Oh my what a juicy gadget geek's year this is going to be... big_smile
