T-Mobile Launching Inspiron Mini 10 with webConnect, Bringing HSPA+ to 100 Markets This Year

T-Mobile is late to the 3G netbook game, but it’s finally rolling out its first product. The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 will be available tomorrow in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Miami for $199 with a two-year contract. For that price you’ll  get a Windows 7 Starter system with built-in mobile broadband  and an integrated data manager to make sure you don’t over that 5GB cap. This is a 7.2 Mbps capable device, not the faster HSPA+ that we recently tested. T-Mobile also says that HSPA+ phones will be rolling out during the second half of the year.

And that brings us to the bigger news. T-Mobile is stepping up its efforts to expand its HSPA+ coverage. The carrier is promising to blanket 100 markets by the end of the year. T-Mobile now has made HSPA+ available in new markets, including  areas of New York City, New Jersey, Long Island and suburban Washington, D.C., with deployment in Los Angeles coming soon. We just hope T-Mobile rethinks that 20 cents per MB overage charge.
