Product Review: Nokia Booklet 3g

Eye-netbook slightly excessive price

Product Review: Nokia Booklet 3g
The Booklet 3G Nokia is a real eye-catcher not only for its printed on the lid manufacturer’s name. Although the people questioned at first, “Oh, a Läppi from Nokia?” But then also to notice how great the system looks and how nice it feels. But the good news is that the Nokia netbook is not quite as good. The described limitations of the A-GPS-receiver have proved to be true, that even with a GPS-capable navigation software ( Map & guide) no “real” GPS reception is possible.

A great plus of the Nokia Booklet 3G is clearly its battery performance, according to This is exorbitantly long with an average of 8-10 hours. This information also applies to the “balanced” mode; In the real Sparmodus there is certainly still a lot more in it, but I have because of the noticeable performance losses not too often. Apropos-Performance, the system also scores only 2.2 points in the Windows rating, which however always result from the weakest value. This is at the booklet the value of the CPU power, while for the graphics performance significantly better values ​​are specified. Inside, the Atom Z530 CPU is the Intel GMA500 graphics chip, which decode .h264 videos and thus relieve the CPU . Videos in the HDReady format are therefore not a problem, if one sticks to the instructions.

Also a plus point gets the model for its technical equipment, which is expressed however also in the price of nearly 750 euro. The externally accessible UMTS module with the built-in A-GPS receiver, the HDMI output, Wifi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and the combined audio input/output round off the inner values. A HDLady display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768, decent LEDs, a “real” aluminum housing, the large multi-touchpad and the Chiklet keyboard round off the external impression. The hingucker “Nokia logo” you get as a gift obendrauf. The handling of the system is pleasant, even if it should be quietly 11.6 or 12 inches screen diagonals. The Windows 7 Starter operating system seems to be appropriate for the Nokia computer. In the normal test operation, at least nothing was missing, even if the “Updaterei” once again annoyed me.

I also liked how little temperature the system develops; And even though no fan starts. The mains connection is quite small, but sits very tightly in its position. Unfortunately, the display cover is much too sloppy screwed and falls quite easily backwards, so that one must always pay little attention. The surface of the display is designed in glossy black piano-black, which is the usual fingerprint problem. Also glossy/reflective is the display itself, which is not quite as good for outdoor use. The beautiful Alugehäuse has unfortunately also its hooks – on the one hand it is quite cool in the morning and the other is quite sharp. Not so that you could cut yourself, but it can hurt a bit. Something less meaningful is that the SD slot on my model did not work. This is, however, more likely to be an individual case than a series fault, which can be remedied in the factory.

The two most important points, which speak rather against the purchase of the Nokia Booklet 3G, are the high price and the imprecise and navigation-incompatible A-GPS module. If you are not afraid to spend a few more euros for a real eye-catcher, who can convince you of the handling, the booklet should look more closely.

I’ve had a lot of fun with the design piece, so I’d rather send it away again before I get used to it.
