The Nokia Booklet 3G netbook is not even out yet, yet reports coming out of Asia suggests that demand is so strong that Nokia is considering releasing an updated version for 2010. Digitimes says that manufacturer, Compal Electronics, is working overtime to satisfy demand.
This demand is likely to be coming from telecom operators who will be selling the Booklet 3G with lucrative long-term data contracts. However, I’d take all of this information with a pinch of salt until we see some raw numbers on just how successful the Booklet 3G has been with the end-consumer.
No detail on what the next version of the Booklet 3G would include, however I’d love to see Nokia following its mobile roots and releasing a smartbook to provide the always-on 3G experience that is lacking from current devices.
