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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: 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 look equally at home on the desk of a CEO or graphic designer. But why would either of them bother to put it there?
Pros: Pretty. Exceptional battery life (over six hours). Durable aluminum construction separates it from a pack of shoddily built netbooks.
Cons: Dismal performance on all fronts, with jittery graphics. Impossibly cramped keyboard. Dim screen. Crazy-expensive for what it offers.

Summary: The Nokia Booklet 3G looks great, with a range of tactile, matt colours to choose from. The keyboard is well made, which aids usability. The Social Hub is an excellent feature for organising your life, and accessing the internet via a SIM card slot is straightforward.
Pros: Excellent battery life, quality build, tactile keyboard, first netbook with ability to get online via SIM card
Cons: Slow processing speed, comparatively high price, SMS feature requires Nokia phone to add contacts
Summary: The Nokia Booklet 3G weighs just 1.2KGs and it’s got all of this: Unboxing The way it’s built With Aluminum all around, very very comfy spaced keyboard and well aligned ports, it’s been built just.the.way.it.should.have.been.
