Nokia Booklet 3G unboxing video

The Nokia Booklet 3G is Nokia’s first foray in to the ‘proper laptop’ market. Upon initial inspection you might think the price tag is rather high for a device of a similar size to many other netbook style computers hitting the market but there’s a while lot more to consider.

First of all the Nokia Booklet has a built in 3G modem for connectivity on the move without the need for dongles or teathers. It features a 10.1", HD ready, glass screen, HDMI output, 12 Hour battery life, SD card reader and a hot-swappable SIM card slot to name but a few of its stand out features. The built-in HSDPA gives you internet on the move, while WiFi and Bluetooth give you the other now standard connectivity options.

So looking at the Booklet more closely I have to say that I am VERY impressed with the build quality. The majority of the chassis is made of aluminium nicely designed a made too. Then there’s the glass screen which looks beautifully clear, glass adding that extra optical quality that cant be matched by plastic. To be honest, if I were shown this computer minus its branding I think I would have guessed it was a new smaller Apple MacBook.

Oh yes.It’s talents don’t end there, with Nokia’s mini laptop PC also features onboard assisted-GPS and Ovi Maps, a great navigation solution. There is also a single front-facing camera nestled above the 10.1-inch HD screen for video chat, with Bluetooth and a built-in SD card reader also making appearances.

Have a look at my quick unboxing and tour video for more:
