Nokia, the Finish company released it’s first netbook computer known as the Booklet 3G. Two weeks back I had the opportunity to trial this master piece. It came with Microsoft Windows 7 Starter pre-installed. Speaking about the hardware configuration, it sports a Intel Atom Z530 1.6 GHz processor with 120GB hard drive along with just 1GB of DDR2 RAM. Hardware wise you don’t see much of a difference between the Booklet and the other Netbooks in the market, except for it’s embedded 3G/HSDPA modem and built-in GPS receiver.
The Nokia Booklet 3G’s chassis is crafted from single piece of tough, resilient elemental aluminium. And uses the Intel Poulsbo US15W chipset with fanless design, so it’s ultra quiet.
The 10.1 inch HD display is covered with a glass layer for a crisp and clear view of the screen. Nokia Booklet includes a HDMI connector, two USB ports and a 3.5mm audio connector on to your left hand side and on the right hand side you get the Charger connector, one USB port, Memory and SIM card slot cover and the power button.
Regarding the keyboard and touch-pad, it is well designed.
The Booklet has a 1.3MP camera and an integrated microphone.
Size wise, it’s smaller than a A4 size paper. To give you a rough idea, I have taken some pix with a thousand rupee note. The Nokia Booklet 3G has a marathon 12 hour battery life, thanks to it’s 16 cell 3840mAh Lithium lon battery.
