Nokia to launch Booklet 3G in US next month
Nokia will launch its Booklet 3G netbook in the US in mid-November through carrier partner AT&T.
The company said the Booklet 3G will be available through electronics chain store Best Buy, for $300 (€202) on a two-year AT&T contract with a roughly $60 per month data plan.
The device, which aims to blur the lines between smartphones and netbooks, will be powered by an Intel Atom chip and include Wi-Fi, 3G/HSPA and GPS capabilities.
The Booklet 3G will run on the Windows 7 OS, but will also be able to use the applications available on Nokia's Ovi app store.
“Our alliance with Nokia is advancing on multiple fronts and the Nokia Booklet 3G is an important step,” Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said.
