Samsung has teamed up with Verizon Wireless to offer the Samsung N150 netbook through the nation's largest carrier. The netbook offers built-in connectivity to Verizon Wireless' 3G network as well as global connectivity thanks to a pre-installed SIM card that provides access in more than 200 countries.

The Samsung N150 is powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor running at 1.66GHz. It has up to 1GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch screen, webcam, 160GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The N150 offers up to seven hours of battery life.

You can get the Samsung N150 for $49.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. Of course, you'll end up paying much more in the long-run since you have to sign up for a new two-year customer agreement and a Mobile Broadband plan, but if you are looking to get one anyway, this might not be a bad option to consider.

I think the tablets are really a much better option for this type of connectivity when one of the mega smart phones won't fill this place already.

Wow, the plans seem a bit on the expensive side, especially travelling outside of North America considering you only get 100MB.

This article reminds me of the guy who went to France on vacation from Canada and he brought along his Smartphone (name of company withheld! as I do not want to spread it around...)and eventually he got an $8000 dollar bill for using it overseas.

If I was going overseas I would most likely just go find an internet cafe, and spend 10 bucks :P
