Verizon’s HP Mini Netbook Hits The Market

Verizon has just released its subsidized HP Mini netbook, featuring international data access.

It has all sorts of new connectivity tricks in store, including “Qualcomm’s GOBI tri-mode EVDO/UMTS/GSM/EDGE 3G modem with dual-band EVDO Rev. A, quadband GSM/EDGE and triband HSPA access with US 3G support.”

Furthermore, the new Verizon HP Mini has a generally standard setup – the 1.6 GHz Atom N270, 1 GB RAM with a 2 GB option, and a 10.1-inch display. The 80 GB hard drive is a pain, but with Windows XP, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, and exceptionally low prices it’s hard to complain.

What exactly are those prices? Take a look:

“The HP Mini 1151NR is $519.99 Month-to Month, $349.99 on a 1 year agreement and $249.99 on a 2 year agreement before a $50 instant rebate bringing the totals to $299.99 and $199.99 after selecting either the $40/month or the $60/month data plans which are set at 250 MB and 5 GB monthly access respectively.”

Sounds good so far. Check back soon more on the Verizon notebook, or check out some of our archives on other netbook mobile broadband plans.
