Nokia's Booklet 3G has shown up for preorder on the company's Italian webstore, priced at €699 ($1,019) unlocked and SIM-free. The Finnish netbook - announced at Nokia World last week - packs a 720p-capable 10.1-inch display, integrated 900/2100MHz HSDPA/HSUPA and AGPS. It's expected to begin shipping at the end of October 2009.
Currently the only color option listed is black, though we saw blue and silver versions while at the launch event last week. The Booklet 3G has a 120GB hard-drive, runs Windows 7 and packs WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth in addition to its cellular modem.
Processor is Intel's 1.6GHz Atom Z530, paired with 1GB of RAM, plus there's an accelerometer, HDMI output, three USB 2.0 ports and a battery Nokia insist is good for 12 hours runtime even in the real-world. To be honest we're more keen to see how much the Nokia Booklet 3G comes in at subsidized - and to see which carriers take a risk on it - but if you simply have to get one as soon as they're available then preordering may be your best bet.
