VIDEO: Nokia's $800 Booklet 3G

This week there's been a lot of talk about Nokia's $810 netbook, the Booklet 3G. Judging from comments over the last few days, most of you think $810 is far too expensive, especially when you consider the device doesn't offer much more than your average netbook, specs-wise.

On the off chance that some of you will change your mind when you see the device on film, check out the video below and let us know what you think.

As a side note, a lot of you expressed regret that, though carriers are expected to heavily subsidize the device, this would mean signing a contract. Is it more the contract that's putting you off than the price itself?

    Nice looking, and battery life sounds good according to what they claim. Will it stream Hulu and Netflix full screen?

    Stupid video for a stupidly priced netbook. I will save myself hundreds of dollars and go with another manufacturer.

    If that $800 was including the cost for the 3g access, then maybe I could understand the price. Otherwise, you may as well buy a $250 netbook and one of the USB dongles from Verizon, Sprint, etc.

    bogcottonWhat's with the nail polish on the slightly masculine hands!?
    yeah... not sure if it's a guy with blue nail polish or if it's a woman with man-hands... kind of an odd choice, but not as bothersome as the price.

  • It's not 800$. It's 570€ in Europe. US prices have not been released, but they're never ever as high as EU prices. I bet it's closer to 600$.

    If it's 800 USD, it'll sell very few units, unless that includes a certain amount of the contract for whatever service you get for the mobile broadband connection.
