Nokia Booklet 3G, priced at €249, heads for Europe

October 27, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Nokia has started to ship its Booklet 3G in Europe, ending a long wait for enthusiasts who were looking forward to pocketing the notebook as soon as it arrives.

Powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z-series processor, the new notebook houses 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive. The company has also added options for WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. All this comes attached with a price tag of €249 ($371) with a 24-month, €20 ($30) data plan.

 The pricing we are talking about relates to the European scene, as we are yet to know when the Booklet 3G will reach American shores. Nokia fans in the US would have to wait at least until mid-November to have a taste of the new Booklet 3G, it is believed. A report has however hinted that Nokia would sell the Booklet 3G at Best Buy stores in the US for $299.99. Well, we will wait for the official confirmation.
Neatly packaged in a slim shell, the new notebook’s power department will be taken care of by a 3,840mAh battery. One aspect we notice is that the battery takes so much of space in the interior and this might mean more battery life. The CPU uses low power and comes sans a fan, which in turn makes the Booklet 3G a silent performer.  The keyboard is an absolute charmer with admirable spacing. It incorporates a trackpad which is fairly big and has well-spaced buttons.
