Review Nokia Booklet 3G Netbook

17 August 2011
  • Summary: Phase-out model. The Finnish mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia, ventured into the netbook sector in 2009 with the Booklet 3G. We take a look at the still available, former luxury netbook with now obsolete hardware about two years later. Read in this review where the once premium Booklet is placed today.
  • Pros: Built-in 3G UMTS module, Given scope of delivery, Practical power adapter, Low noise emissions, Impressive battery life and power consumption, The good battery life, the low emissions and the built-in 3G UMTS module ex-factory.
  • Cons: 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, A few things! Among others, a better workmanship, appropriate input devices or even a superior display with matt surface.

Another Force Enters the Netbook Battle

Gear Patrol
6 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Yes, we know, it’s just another netbook. The proverbial device that technology companies are getting meth-like shakes over left and right. One wrinkle on this story, though, is that it’s the first to be released by a phone manufacturer. Called the Booklet 3G, there’s no doubt the device’s roots stem from the world of cellphones. That said, based on its specs, it will definitely be a laptop instead of some terrible smartphone-computer-bastard-love child.

Nokia Booklet 3G (black)

21 March 2011
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Excellent design; great battery life; seamless 3G connection.
  • Cons: Slower CPU leads to frustratingly sluggish performance.

Nokia Booklet 3G

PC Magazine
7 May 2010
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Luxurious design. Aluminum metals have perfect heft. Good resolution. Lightweight. Embedded 3G. HDMI-Out. Great battery life.
  • Cons: Overpriced. Slow-spinning hard drive. Crippling performance scores. No easy way to upgrade memory.

The Nokia Booklet 3G - Sexy and well connected - the Gadling review

23 March 2010
  • Summary: Design The design is also unlike any other netbook on the market - forget cheap flimsy plastic, the Booklet 3G is designed around a single aluminum frame, and the end result is quite simply stunning. The one poor design choice is in the lid - instead of making that in the same finish as the rest, Nokia picked a glossy plastic cover - making the machine one big fingerprint magnet. I tried keeping it clean for the first couple of days, then just gave up.

Expert Review

Mobile Tech Addicts

  • Conclusion: Ultimately the Nokia Booklet 3G is a very nicely designed piece of kit with some practical compromises that I find it hard to see a place for. Apple has the advantage that only they make their systems. If Nokia had produced something that was truly unique to this device, even as far as a custom OS then maybe it would be a different story.

Nokia Booklet 3G Review

2 December 2009
  • Summary: 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 Netbooks, mainly because of its hard drive performance and small memory size, I suspect. Additionally, there’s not easy way to upgrade either of these and Nokia offers only a single model.

Nokia Booklet 3G Review

LAPTOP Magazine
10 November 2009
  • Summary: 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 design, and by offering about 8.5 hours of battery life.
