in the spot video booklet 3g the new netbook nokia is presented with windows. But I personally prefer the combination of opensource software Ubuntu + Maemo.

For italian maemo/nokia user I post on my blog the news ad the specifications of new booklet3G : http://rafanto.net/booklet-3g-ecco-il-netbook-nokia/
