Yesterday Verizon announced that it intends to begin a netbook program, selling 3G-capable netbooks by June this year. Verizon isn’t new to netbooks, offering a huge rebate on Sony Vaio P netbooks back in February.
Rumors circulating say that the netbook of choice will be the HP Mini 1000 netbook, the approximately $330 machine famous for the flashy Vivienne Tam edition released a while back. The netbook will go for a mere $99 in Verizon stores with the purchase of a 2-year contract.
Be careful, though – some 3G netbook plans have had dire consequences for their subscribers, especially one woman from Oklahoma who got burned with a $5000 bill by AT&T.
