Nokia Booklet 3G Arrives With Windows 7 At Best Buy
The Nokia Booklet 3G is being rolled out through Best Buy stores in conjunction with the release of Microsoft Windows 7 next week.
The Nokia Booklet 3G will be available at Best Buy stores in the U.S. at a subsidized price of $299.99 with a two-year data plan from AT&T. The netbook will come preloaded with Microsoft Windows 7 and will be available in stores and online starting on Oct. 22 -- the same day Microsoft's new OS is slated to roll out.
The price tag on the Finnish phone maker's netbook has come down considerably since it was first revealed. Nokia in September first revealed that the Booklet 3G would cost an eye-popping $820 -- an exorbitant price for netbooks, which tend to retail for less than $500.
Since the initial announcement, Nokia has partnered with AT&T to offer the netbook for a subsidized price of $299, with a two-year service agreement.
