Nokia Booklet 3G Netbook

Nokia Booklet 3G – unbeatable battery life and built-in 3G

The Nokia Booklet 3G Netbook is different from other travel netbooks because it comes with built-in 3G connectivity.  The Booklet is like a Nokia smartphone meets laptop computer and includes GPS and Nokia’s Ovi-Maps navigation software.

Beautifully constructed with a 10.1″ HD-ready screen, highly durable aluminum body, and quality gloss finish, the Nokia Booklet is one of the best looking netbooks on the market.  The sleek aluminum body makes it look almost like a mini Macbook.  Although the keys on the keyboard are quite small compared to other netbooks, the super responsive and large track pad makes up for it.

Nokia’s choice of components is unique.  The Booklet runs the Atom Z530 processor, which requires less power than other processors so it doesn’t require a fan.  The less power hungry processor paired with a 16-cell Li-Ion battery pack keeps the Booklet up and running for up to 12 hours.  The super thin body lets you comfortably hold the netbook in one hand and stash it easily into a purse or backpack.

The Nokia Booklet 3G might just be the best travel netbook on the market.  Twelve hours of battery life is simply incredible and with 3G you can get online virtually anywhere.  Only downfalls are the Booklet is almost 2 pounds heavier than other models and it is a bit on the pricey side.  If you’re looking for long lasting battery life and built-in GPS and 3G this netbook is for you.
