The Nokia N8 supports WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100. This means consumers in the USA can insert their AT&T or T-mobile SIM cards and enjoy fast 3G internet speeds. To confirm this works, I tested both SIM cards for a speed test. Take a look at the results.
One of the things shown off at Nokia World was the Booklet 3G, a Windows-based mini laptop with up to 12 hours of battery, 10.1in display, built-in SIM slot, A-GPS, front-facing camera, and more. I’ve asked a Nokia spokesperson at the event to give me an overview of the device in front of camera. Take a look.
Nokia completed its announcement of the Booklet 3G today at Nokia World and I’ve got to play with it briefly. Take a look at some of the hands-on photos and my first impressions. I’ll have access to a Nokia Booklet 3G spokesperson later this afternoon, so I’ll have some videos up soon.
The Nokia N900 sure looks like the next Nokia device to get, but the announcement leaves current Nokia ‘NAM’ users in the dark. For the past few years in the US, I had to be an AT&T subscriber if I wanted high-end Nokia phones with 3G internet. Nokia produced phone variations labeled ‘NAM’ that worked with AT&T’s high-speed network. The Nokia N900 announced recently will not work with AT&T’s 3G, but there is hope for a forthcoming variation.
Were you surprised at Nokia’s announcement of the Booklet 3G? The Windows-based netbook features a 10.1-inch HD ready display, 12 hours of battery life, 2 centimeters thin, 1 kg light, integrated A-GPS, front-facing camera,SIM slot, and HDMI port for HD video out. More information will be announced at Nokia World on September 2nd.
If you haven’t already caught wind of this, Nokia Siemens are following the suit of the good folks over at Ericsson in the efforts to up the speed of Edge. By Q3 software should be able to have Edge hit speeds of around 592kbs down. They then plan to raise it as high as 1.2 mbps down, not too shabby!
