It’s looking like starting Sunday, October 4th you’ll be able to buy a Gateway LT2016U netbook at Verizon Wireless for some potentially interesting numbers. Here’s are your options:
- $499 with no contract
- $319 with a $60/month one-year wireless broadband contract
- $150 after a $100 rebate with a $60/month two-year wireless broadband contract
If you’re into the wireless broadband thing that’s a competitive deal. The 10.1-inch Gateway LT2016U netbook has a 1024 x 600 pixel screen, the 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 chip, a Gig of RAM, 160 GB HDD, and Windows XP.
Retail versions sold elsewhere cost around $300 but don’t include the 3G chip.
