The Booklet 3G comes in black, ice or azure; features a 10.1-inch glass display; and weighs in at only 2.76 pounds.
The Booklet 3G offers all-day connectivity. Nokia execs encourage users to charge the device, head to the office and leave the charger behind. Features include Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity—via AT&T—as well as Bluetooth and A-GPS.
Through the holiday season, the Booklet 3G will be available exclusively at Best Buy, which offers a free “Walk Out Working” service that helps customers activate their device, set up the OS and become familiarized with features, such as Nokias Ovi Suite.
The U.S. is one of the first markets the Booklet 3G will launch in, and Nokia expects to sell 20 million of them before the end of the year. The head of the production team described the Booklet as having an “aluminum super chassis.”
Nokia created a single jack for headphone and microphone use. Theres an HDMI port for high-definition video out, and two USB ports.
An SD slot and a firewire port are included, along with a built-in 1.3-megapixel Webcam and microphone.
The keyboard on the Booklet 3G is not quite full-size.
