Nokia 3G Booklet priced

Nokia's first netbook, the Booklet 3G has got an unofficial price ahead of what is expected to be its official release at next week's Nokia World show. The 10-inch netbook is expected to cost $799, while processing power is expected to come from Intel's 1.6GHz Z530 Atom CPU. Windows 7 should be preloaded onto the system, according to the newest report, and Nokia is claiming a 12-hour life for the near 2.8lb device.

The high expected price of the Booklet 3G is validated by the device's included connectivity options, made up of Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth. As well, there is a built-in GPS sensor that allows access to Ovi Maps and the device's aluminum construction. The battery required to meet Nokia's 12-hour claims is also expected to be high-capacity, adding to that bottom line.

As Nokia is, traditionally, a cellphone manufacturer, with these devices sold at lower prices thanks to subsidies by the wireless providers that carry them. Official pricing, specs and release dates for the Booklet 3G are expected to be released at Nokia World, which starts on September 2nd. [via Netbooknews]
