Good news, gadget geeks and geekettes: the Nokia Booklet is not going to be a ridiculously expensive piece of gear that no one without a trust fund can afford. Information has come out (via Engadget) that the Booklet 3G will be available starting October 22nd, for $299 with a 2 year AT&T contract.

That's much less then the $700-800 we'd been expecting, as is the unsubsidized price of $600. Still, the Booklet won't be cheap. $300 is a very fair netbook price, but you'll also be paying $60 a month for AT&T's data plan. That brings the total cost up substantially, to around $1700 in total. Granted, that includes 2 years of 3G service.

Once more, the Nokia Booklet will launch with Windows 7 on October 22nd of this year. It'll retail only at Best Buy throughout the holidays. So, who is dreaming of a netbook with 12 hours of in-use battery life this Christmas?
