Four Reasons to Buy the Nokia Booklet 3G

Four Reasons to Buy the Nokia Booklet 3G

Nokia's first PC (as opposed to the phones they refer to as multimedia computers) got a lot of hype when it was announced and is getting a lot of mixed reviews from folks who complain mostly about price/performance and that you can get better specs in a netbook for less money. After spending some time with a Booklet 3G, I'm once again reminded that there's more to a purchase than speeds and feeds, and that value, much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. So I'm not going to discuss the relatively slow processor or hard drive. We can agree that the Booklet isn't a speed demon. It is, however, how a good PC experience should be and that's worth paying for in my opinion.

Nokia Booklet 3G review

Nokia Booklet 3G review

While many scoffed at the idea of Nokia building a netbook, the idea does have its share of merits. After all, the Finnish company knows a few things about eking out runtimes from compact batteries, and with netbooks being perhaps the most likely of computing devices to be in search of mobile connectivity, stuffing them with the sort of wireless access your high-end Nokia boasts certainly makes sense. Throw in eye-catching design and you're onto a winner, right? Unfortunately, we've found the Nokia Booklet 3G falls short in other areas; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia Booklet 3G second-gen orders being discussed?

Nokia Booklet 3G second-gen orders being discussed?

The first examples of Nokia's Booklet 3G netbook are yet to drop into buyers' hands, but according to leaks fizzing out of Taiwan the Finns are already discussing orders for their second-gen model.  Notorious rumor-monger Economic Daily News has suggested that a new Booklet 3G with updated specifications is expected to be released in 2010, a statement that is, frankly, stating the obvious.  However, reading between the lines we'd expect any updated netbook from Nokia to take advantage of Intel's upcoming Pine Trail processors, such as the Atom N450, and we do know a little about that CPU's release schedule.
