Nokia Reveals Booklet 3G Netbook Price, Specs

What we did know was that the machine would be Atom-powered and Windows-based. We knew that we were looking at a 10-inch HD-ready screen, 3G wireless, Wi-Fi a hot-swappable SIM card and integrated A-GPS as well as HDMI out. Nokia today revealed some more information on the Booklet, including the device's scary price.

As far as specs go, you've got an Atom Z530, 120 GB hard disk, 1 GB RAM, Windows 7, integrated Ovi Suite (for maps, calendar contacts, media etc),  a 16-cell battery that promises a 12 hour battery life, Bluetooth, 3 x USB 2.0, an SD card reader, a 10.1-inch LCD (1,280 x 720) and of course, a 1.3MP camera.

As for that scary price, you're looking at €575 ($810) before subsidies. That said, it's expected to be heavily subsidized by carriers, so maybe it won't end up costing an arm and a leg if you're willing to get it on contract. No word on a release yet but it'll obviously be after October 22. So, anyone interested? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for this on-contract? Let us know in the comments below!

    12 hours of battery life sounds very nice. But I have no intention of selling my soul for a contract plan.

    $810?! I don't think so. Get a laptop or netbook. Add extra battery with charger and you will save money or have much better performance. You can charge the second battery while you continue working and not to be tight up to the power outlet.
