Nokia’s Booklet 3G gets more real, more extensively spec’d, more sexy

When Nokia’s Booklet 3G laptop/netbook/whatever-you-want-to-call-it was first announced last week, we were pretty impressed. Surprisingly so, in fact. We knew a Nokia laptop was on the horizon but we really expected it to be a boring, inexpensive “me too” offering intended to make Nokia’s entry into the notebook space a simple and attainable one. As it turns out, the exact opposite is the case — the Nokia Booklet 3G is anything but simple, it’s anything but boring and with the announced price of 575€ ($817 USD), it’s anything but inexpensive. Now that Nokia World ’09 is here and the Booklet 3G’s specs have been revealed, we’re even more bowled over than we were before. The bottom line is that the Booklet 3G is a Windows 7-powered beast with an insane 12 hour battery life (and that’s supposedly usage time, not standby), admirable specs and a design that’s just begging to be ogled. Yep, we need it. Hit the jump for the full specs along with a new promo vid and a brief video interview with the designer.
