Nokia’s first netbook, the Nokia Booklet 3G, is now available to pre-order online in the UK.
The Booklet 3G, which Nokia refers to as a ‘mini-laptop’, is priced at £649 – far higher than other netbooks, which generally cost less than £300.
Nokia’s Booklet 3G has a 10.1-inch HD screen with 1280×720 pixel resolution, 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB Ram, and a 120GB hard drive.

Nokia claims 12-hour battery life for Booklet 3G
Where Nokia’s new netbook differs from its competitors is in its claimed 12-hour battery life, with most netbooks struggling to last for half that time. And with a 2cm-thick body made from ‘aircraft-grade aluminium’ in a premium gloss finish, the Booklet 3G should be lightweight and durable compared to its plastic rivals.
On-board connectivity features include 3G, 801.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and built-in GPS. The Booklet 3G will run Windows 7 Starter Edition.
