T-Mobile Introduces Netbook-Broadband Package

T-Mobile is getting in the mix as 2008 ends by introducing its netbook/mobile broadband program.  It should be a big competitor in the growing ‘netbook bundle’ market.They will be giving out ASUS Eee PC 904HD netbooks, USB modem sticks, 3 GB monthly fair use amount, 200 free texts, and cheap Wi-Fi access with the purchase of a 24 month contract. If you’re in the market for that kind of thing this has to look unbelievably attractive. Download speed for the netbooks is around 4.5 mbps.The particular model they’re offering has ” 8.9-widescreen display, an Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, a 80GB HDD, WiFi, a card reader, Windows XP Home and a webcam.” T-Mobile is also expected to launch two similar models soon, but we don’t know if they’ll be laptops or netbooks.The kicker? Acer, which has been leading the netbook market so far, got replaced by ASUS because it failed to supply enough netbooks. The only other open mobile phone network without a netbook package is O2.Via ITProPortal.
