Best Buy has announced that it will be the exclusive U.S. partner for the Nokia Booklet 3G, Nokia's sleek and anticipated new 3G netbook computer offering.
The Nokia Booklet 3G features a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of DDR2 533MHz RAM, and a 120GB hard drive. Of course, it features 3G HSPA data connectivity and it includes WiFi technology as well. What the Booklet lacks in inexpensive hardware it makes up for in design and battery life. The mobile computer chassis is made of a single piece of aluminum and the device claims 12 hours of actual usage time.
Announced in late August, Nokia is pricing the Booklet 3G in Nokia retail locations for 575 EUR (US$822) and will likely begin shipping the device when Microsoft Windows 7 is launched on October 22. Best Buy has not announced pricing or availability for its locations.
