Review Nokia Booklet 3G Netbook

 

Phase-out model. The Finnish mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia, ve

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

Poor workmanship; No upgrade options; Small input devices; Glossy display layer; Average display brightness and contrast; Weak application performance; Moderate stereo speakers; High price despite obsolete hardware

The various netbooks from back then with an Intel Atom N270 dual core CPU for just the half the Booklet's price. Today, a vast number of netbooks for around 300 euros with a dual core CPU, 2 to 4 GBs of RAM for currently the same price (300 euros)....

Nokia Booklet 3G Review

 

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...

Nokia Booklet 3G (black)

 

Nokia's entry in the crowded Netbook field shows that the company's hardware know-how translates to computer design, but a poor choice of CPU should give you pause.

Excellent design; great battery life; seamless 3G connection

Slower CPU leads to frustratingly sluggish performance

You might think MikroMikko is the name of some Asian fusion restaurant, but it was actually Nokia's first computer line -- and in 1987, the MikroMikko 3

Very sturdy aluminum build ; Comfortable rubberized keyboard ; Nice quality HD display

Slow 4,200rpm hard drive ; Sluggish everyday performance ; Very expensive compared to other netbooks

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...

We want to love the Booklet 3G, if only because it looks so good. Problem is, once you turn it on you’re stuck with performance that even the first-gen netbooks generally exceeded, and if that’s frustrating when the Nokia is box-fresh then imagine how...

Nokia Makes Dumb Move With Its 'Smartbook'

 

Try as we might, we just can't see the point of this so-called smartbook.Sure, Nokia's Booklet 3G is cute and quaint. It's got Mac-like svelteness and would

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.

Expert review by:

Nokia Booklet 3G

 

Easily the most luxurious netbook to date, the Booklet 3G is a tough recommendation when its price is bloated and performance doesn't measure up to cheaper netbooks.

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

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...

The netbook market is growing by the day, because more and more people don´t just need internet connection, but they need to be online all the time. This new class of computers are fully functional (even if coming with modestly performing hardware),...
