Built-in 3G UMTS module; Given scope of delivery; Practical power adapter; Low noise emissions; Impressive battery life and power consumption

If you perform the most basic tasks (email, text editing) and need a small laptop with an amazing battery life, the Nokia Booklet 3G is worth looking at. However, you will pay for these qualities in performance. The computer is even slower than recent...

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...

Pretty. Exceptional battery life (over six hours). Durable aluminum construction separates it from a pack of shoddily built netbooks

Dismal performance on all fronts, with jittery graphics. Impossibly cramped keyboard. Dim screen. Crazy-expensive for what it offers

Nokia Booklet 3G

 

Nokia spokespeople are quick to correct you if you slip and call the Booklet 3G a netbook. Well, let's see: It has a tiny, clamshell, laptop-like design. It has meager specs (1GB of RAM, Intel's Z530 1.6-GHz Atom CPU, and a 4200-rpm 120GB hard drive)....

Upscale design

Expensive ; Loose hinge doesn't hold the screen well

The Booklet 3G netbook is rugged and solidly built--but some quirks make it a slightly too-pricey portable.

We typically recommended against netbooks with built-in 3G because they offer modest savings in exchange for locking you into a hefty service charge for 24 months. However, the Nokia Booklet 3G stands out from the subsidized crowd with a clean, modern...

Nokia Booklet 3G

 

The Nokia Booklet 3G is one classy-looking netbook, but it won't get very far with its bloated price tag and underwhelming speeds.

Luxurious design. Aluminum metals have perfect heft. Good resolution. Lightweight. Embedded 3G. HDMI-Out. Great battery life.

Overpriced. Slow-spinning hard drive. Crippling performance scores. No easy way to upgrade memory.

Nokia Booklet 3G

 

Nokia's debut on the netbook market was met with a lot of excitement. Being the number one mobile handset maker in the world, it's pretty interesting how they'd implement their very own netbook with the Nokia Booklet 3G.
