Nokia has announced that the Booklet 3G will be available from German wireless carrier O2 on October 22nd. The price? €249 or about $365 US. Of course, you’ll need to sign up for 2-year service contract to get that price, at €20 to €25 per month.

The Booklet 3G is Nokia’s first netbook. It includes WiFi, a 3G modem, Bluetooth, and GPS. And it runs Windows 7, which explains why it’s launching in Germany on the same day that Microsoft is launching Windows 7.

We’ve been hearing for a while now that customers that want to pick up a netbook without a wireless subsidy would have to pay close to $800. But it looks likely that the unlocked version of the Booklet 3G will be available in the US for $600 from Best Buy. And if the German pricing is anything to go by, it could be a whole lot cheaper if and when US wireless carriers begin to offer the netbook at a subsidized price.
