We got a Nokia Booklet 3G courtesy WOM World, and we’re going to go through the feature list, one part at a time. Meanwhile, here are some of the unboxing shots!
The retail packaging is quite brilliant. The side panels of the package house the charger and the extension! The rest of the package, including the headset, the USB charging cable, the manuals and the cleaning cloth are housed in the box underneath the Booklet (hence the small white paper tab, to pull it out!)
The booklet 3G is Nokia’s Mini-Laptop, Running Windows 7 on an Intel Atom Processor. It comes with a whole lotta goodies, including built in GPS, a SIM slot so that you can save the use of a clunky USB netconnect dongle, and the best part is, a battery that lasts forever and ever and ever (ok we kid, but Vinu did manage to use it for 11 hours before he got bored of waiting for it to die!)

It seems all’s not well on the Nokia Booklet 3G front. There are reports on the net that the 1GB RAM module on the booklet is soldered on the motherboard. Yep! You’re stuck with 1GB of RAM only, and cannot upgrade it even if you wanted to. This along with the fact that that the Nokia Boolet 3G runs on the Intel Atom Z530, which is not known for it’s speed, may irritate a few users, especially after paying premium price of around $600. Let’s see what users of the device say when they start using it.
Another things working against the Booklet is the glossy screen. It seems the gloss on the screen makes viewing it outdoors almost impossible. You can see how bad it is from the video below taken by tnkgrl
