Nokia's Booklet 3G: already available in Germany

According to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News report cited by DigiTimes, Nokia hopes to take advantage of its current netbook momentum by releasing a new version of Booklet 3G in 2010.

The Chinese report added that Nokia is supposedly seeing strong demand for its machine - so much so that the firm’s Taiwan-based manufacturing partner, Compal, has begin working around the clock to ensure Nokia has enough units of the Windows 7 PC to satisfy demand.

Exactly when Nokia’s Booklet 3G will hit the UK is still unknown, but it looks likely that the machine will appear in Blighty before Christmas. Nokia’s German arm is already selling Booklet 3G for €729 (£671/$1096).

Nokia’s UK sales line told Register Hardware today that although it’s too early to confirm an official UK sales date, the machine will probably arrive here before Christmas. ®
