Cell phones giant Nokia has officially released its new first netbook – Booklet 3G. It’s getting a lot of press for both its specs and deceivingly-low price tag. While the Booklet 3G has a sparkly retail price of just $299, the small print of that deal reads that you’ll have to tie yourself down with a 2-year AT&T service contract – just like a cell phone. That agreement will run you in the neighborhood of $60/month, so that sweet $299 netbook just cost you over $1700. Alternately you could buy an unsubidized version–but that will double your initial cost up to $599. The 10.1-inch netbook features a durable, aluminum frame, built-in A-GPS and a 12-hour battery and runs Windows 7. It will be available exclusively through Best Buy. [via Slippery Brick]
