Over the last several months I have been working on my next book, Netbooks in Easy Steps. During the writing of that book I have looked a lot of netbooks and devices, and also at forthcoming devices. One of those that looked very interesting was the Nokia Booklet 3G, and yesterday it was released.
So what exactly is the Booklet 3G then? Here is what Nokia has to say about it:
The ultraportable Nokia Booklet 3G comes with Windows 7 software and boasts a 12 hour battery life, inbuilt A-GPS and Ovi Maps, making it the complete solution for all day mobility and modern lifestyles.
A must-have for people on the move that demand both style and substance, the Booklet offers:
- Up to 12 hours battery life means that you can leave your power cable behind and still be connected and productive all day
- Built in A-GPS allows you to connect with the people and things that matter most whilst on the move
- It’s compact and ultra portable with its lightweight aluminium body
It’s also packed full of features…
- Windows 7 Starter edition software
- Intel® Atom™ Z530, 1.6 GHz processor for high performance
- Fanless design for efficiency
- Fast, reliable 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity from Nokia
- 10.1″ HD-ready screen, with glass window as well as an HDMI port for video out
- Nokia Ovi suite included
The Nokia Booklet 3G, is now shipping and available to buy for £649 at www.nokia.co.uk/shop.
My initial thoughts are that it looks very interesting, but at £649 it is a little expensive compared to a lot of other netbooks. So it is worth the money? I should hopefully have one to look at very soon, and will post up a review when I do.
