Verizon Subsidized Netbooks on the Way?
Looks like those Verizon Wireless subsidized netbooks will be on the way soon and the HP Mini 1000 will be the first to be offered. According to Phone Arena’s tipsters the Nation’s largest wireless carrier will be underwriting the cost of the mini-notebook for a wireless contract. The leaked slides do not reveal what the wireless package would consist of. The HP Mini 1000 offered by the carrier will have a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1 GB of RAM and 80GB hard drive. There are no other details surrounding Verizon’s plans to offer subsided netbooks but we expect to hear something official sometime soon. Verizon would join AT&T (along with Radioshack), which has been the only carrier to provide a subsided notebook so far. Via Phome Arena
