Strong Booklet 3G demand nets 2nd model

Demand has been high enough for Nokia's Booklet 3G netbook that the company is moving ahead with a second model next year, a leak to Taiwan's Economic Daily News newspaper claims. Nokia's contractor in the area, Compal, is reportedly working "overtime" to meet demand for the Atom-based portable and that it's likely to receive orders for a 2010 model as well. Details of the system are unknown, including whether or not it's an upgrade to the existing system or an entirely new configuration.

The Booklet is Nokia's first-ever netbook and plays on its strengths as a cellular firm with built-in HSPA 3G for carriers like AT&T as well as many international providers. It carries a 16-cell battery pack that Nokia claims can run for up to 12 hours, albeit with wireless off, and is one of the first netbooks to ship with Windows 7. In the US, it sells for $299 on contract or $599 as a stand-alone PC.
