Nokia (NOK) - Get Nokia Oyj Report is making tech news this week, first by announcing its new Nokia 5230 , a mid-range mobile phone that adds to the company's already impressive family of touchscreen devices. Packed with GPS, photo/video and great music features, the phone is apparently "designed for those who lead an active life."

And what's better for those on the go then Nokia's new Booklet 3G. This mini laptop PC apparently packs a big punch in a small 2cm thin aluminum shell. Top that with its reported

12 hours of battery life, and you have yourself a sweet little portable toy. But with a

speculated price of $799 , does the Nokia net book have a chance?

Speaking of portability,

ever-popular Kindle. Priced at $399, the company's new

3G Digital 'Daily Edition,' allows users to check out digital content directly from participating libraries. Ok, so you're probably thinking digital due dates and late fees, right? Well, worry not digital bookworms! When time is up, the content just expires and returns itself to the library ... how cool is that?!

Ok, don't fret

fans, there's still some love out there for you and you may have noticed it this morning when the Apple store suddenly disappeared, though brief. Upon its return, Apple introduced Mac OS X 10.6, or
