Nokia Booklet 3G review: First look

It was only announced last week, with more details unveiled this week, but we got our hands on Nokia's new Booklet 3G for a first look review.

Price
£500

The Booklet 3G is likely to retail for around 500 excluding VAT. With its support for 3G, Nokia hopes that retailers will be offering the Booklet 3G with a subsidy for those taking out a mobile broadband contract, just as they do for the other major laptop manufacturers.

Nokia is also suggesting that some operators may offer combined deals for buying a Booklet 3G and Nokia phone, with two SIM-cards and a combined data account. Nothing has been confirmed, although if Nokia is lucky enough to attract the type of customer that has been waiting for a smaller MacBook, the price may not actually be an issue.

Verdict

Sitting at the top of the netbook tree, the Booklet 3G has all the ingredients to be a winner – with an excellent specification, great design and Windows 7.

Its high price may put off some, but could attract many more – and will certainly make Apple wonder why it discredited this section of the market for so long.
