booklet 3 pc mag

The Nokia Booklet 3G is one of the most hotly anticipated netbooks of the year. And now that we know you’ll be able to pick one up for under $400 (with a service contract, in Germany at least), I’m less reluctant to call it a netbook than I was when we thought it would cost as much as $800. Now that the Booklet 3G is due out in just a few weeks, Nokia is letting journalists spend some time with the little laptop, and the folks from Laptop Magazine and PC Magazine have both published hands-on impressions.

Both publications found the keyboard to be a bit on the small side. But PC Magazine described the Booklet 3G as feeling “more like a Macbook Air than anything else” thanks to its solid build quality and light weight. The folks at Laptop Magazine, who have probably spent a bit more time scrutinizing netbooks felt differently, deeming the Booklet 3G to be a bit heavier than you would expect given its slim size. But at 2.6 pounds, this small laptop with a 57WHr battery and 1280 x 720 pixel display still stands out from the crowd.

  1. Really looking forward to this thing. The specs are great, can’t wait to see if it lives up to them! (also interested to see final UK selling price!)
