Nokia’s first US laptop to cost $300 from AT&T

NEW YORK — Nokia Corp., the world’s largest maker of cell phones, says its first laptop for the U.S. market will cost $300 with a two-year wireless broadband contract from AT&T Inc. when it goes on sale next week.

The Finnish company is broadening its product portfolio as cellular broadband access is spreading to more devices. AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp. already sell small laptops known as “netbooks,” subsidizing the price in exchange for two-year contracts.

The Nokia Booklet 3G will run Microsoft Corp.’s Windows software, have a 10-inch screen and weigh 2.8 pounds.

I bought an Acer Timeline 4810T a month ago and its really doing well.The good thing about Acer is that they give us the choice of selecting features, which we require and not thrown at us and that too, at affordable price. I think, where Acer scores over other laptops is more value for money.

There are many that will swear by their Acer laptop computers and this is amply evident when you come across a great many advertisements expounding on the virtues of such laptops. However, it is not such a good idea to go by advertising claims alone and it is also necessary to first check out different manufacturers and sees what’s on offer before making a considered decision. It should give you peace of mind that Acer is a worldwide company and it is known for providing practical and first-rate solutions for the marketplace. For this reason it will be worthwhile to consider an Acer Timeline.

Do you think Nokia will introduce this product in other countries?
