Nokia's Booklet 3G will hit Germany later this month

The Finnish phone firm announced on its official blog that its Booklet 3G will be available to buy across Germany from 22 October.

Although Nokia hasn’t said when the machine will hit Blighty, it did also say that the Booklet 3G will be available – in Germany - through network carrier O2 for an upfront fee of €249 (£229/$366) and then a monthly charge of €20 for two years – giving UK-based buyers an idea of how much the netbook could cost whenever it hits our shores.

In Germany, the laptop will also be available with an optional flat-rate data tariff of €25 (£23/$36) per month.

Nokia’s Booklet 3G has a 10.1in display, measures less than 2cm thick and weighs in at 1200g. As the name suggests, 3G connectivity is integrated into the chassis alongside Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an Assisted GPS chip. ®
