Phone Maker Nokia to Make Netbooks?

Nokia, the world's largest phone maker, is exploring an entrance into the laptop market, the company's CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said in a Finnish television interview.

As mobile phones look more like PCs these days and netbooks combine a little laptop and a little mobile phone, the netbook market may suit Nokia well.

The devices may not be released until 2011, however.

Meanwhile, as TheStreet.com reports, several PC companies are moving in the opposite direction toward the smartphone market, including Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Toshiba, and Asus.
