Nokia ARM-Based Smartbook To Follow Booklet 3G?

It was only on Monday that Nokia confirmed its first laptop, but now DigiTimes suggests the Fins may use either Compal or Foxconn to build an ARM-based smartbook for 2010. If true, my guess is it'll run Maemo 5.


I say that because so-called smartbooks with ARM-based processors (like Qualcomm's Snapdragon chip) don't support Windows. And there's Nokia with its own Linux-based OS. We've also heard plenty of rumors (since denied) about Nokia looking at Android. We'll have to wait and see. [DigiTimes]
