Best Buy Carrying The Nokia Booklet 3G Is Brilliant

Today we found out that Best Buy will be the exclusive carrier for the Nokia Booklet 3G in the U.S., offering it with an AT&T contract ($60/month for 5GB of data transfer, unless Nokia somehow convinced AT&T to give a discount with it, which I doubt). There’s no official word on the pricing as ofContinue reading “Best Buy Carrying The Nokia Booklet 3G Is Brilliant”

Hands-On With The Nokia Booklet 3G

Last night I had the chance to spend some time with the Nokia Booklet 3G, Nokia’s new netbook, and I have to say – it’s dang impressive. Comparing side-by-side to my trusty Asus 1000HE, the Booklet 3G is smaller, lighter, and built *much* more solidly. It’s also alot sexier, thanks to the aluminum body andContinue reading “Hands-On With The Nokia Booklet 3G”

I’m Traveling Again

I’m traveling again, this time to Stuttgart, Germany, for Nokia World 2009. Normally, Nokia World takes place in December, so the earlier event dates will definitely make the weather a bit more bearable. I’m traveling quite gadget-heavy, as well, which is nothing unusual. For starters, I’m bringing 2 laptops. I realize that might be aContinue reading “I’m Traveling Again”

New EeePC 1000HE Skin From 3acp

While I really love the deep blue color that I picked out for my Asus EeePC 1000HE, unfortunately, the finish is super-high-gloss, and is a terrible fingerprint magnet. Also, while the 10.1-inch display is matte, the 1-inch thick bezel around it is high-gloss, which defeats the purpose of a matte display entirely. As such, IContinue reading “New EeePC 1000HE Skin From 3acp”

Laptop Keyboard Backlights Should Be Standard

When I worked at Nokia, I was given a Lenovo Thinkpad as my work laptop. I don’t recall the exact model or anything, it was merely a work machine. However, one thing that really stuck out to me as a brilliant feature was a little tiny light nestled into the bezel around the display. WithContinue reading “Laptop Keyboard Backlights Should Be Standard”

A Few Weeks With The Asus EeePC 1000HE

It’s been several weeks since I got my Asus EeePC 1000HE, and I’ve had a chance to use it quite a bit. I’ve also noticed a few things that have surfaced since I posted my first impressions, that I wanted to share. First, there are 2 Fn keys, one on either side of the keyboard.Continue reading “A Few Weeks With The Asus EeePC 1000HE”

Initial Thoughts On The Asus EeePC 1000HE

I spent the better part of Wednesday night tinkering with, setting up, and exploring the Asus EeePC 1000HE, and wanted to record some of my first reactions. Most of this is coming from the perspective of the Dell Mini 9, as that was the previous netbook that I had. First off, the 1000HE has someContinue reading “Initial Thoughts On The Asus EeePC 1000HE”

Asus EeePC 1000HE Unboxing

I’m a big geek, which is why I love making unboxing videos even more than I love watching them. I’m going to assume you like watching them, too. Thus, here’s my quick unboxing video of the Asus EeePC 1000HE that I just got from Amazon.com . It cost me $425 shipped 2-day, with the 2GBContinue reading “Asus EeePC 1000HE Unboxing”
