AT&T Adds Windows 7-Equipped Mini 110 To Netbook Lineup

AT&T is on a serious netbook roll. When it's not bashing Verizon Wireless in some futile attempt to prove that it's US network is superior to VZW's network, it's securing netbook after netbook to sell to those who are willing to bite on a low up-front cost. Of course, we've never been big fans of spending less on a netbook up front only to have to pay a hefty monthly fee for 2 full years in order to keep it connected to AT&T's network, but to each their own.

Starting this week, interesting consumers will find another option in AT&T stores (and online) in the HP Mini 110. The newest version of this netbook includes a built-in AT&T WWAN module, Windows 7, a 10.1" LCD screen, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive and an Atom CPU. It'll run users $199 with a 2-year contract. To clarify, the $199 netbook pricing requires the purchase of a new two-year AT&T DataConnect plan - including a 200MB plan option for a newly reduced price of $35 per month or a 5GB plan for $60 per month.

The HP Mini features built-in access to the nation's fastest 3G network and the largest Wi-Fi network in the U.S., and includes the new Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. It will be available for $199 after mail-in rebate via an AT&T Promotion Card and a two-year data service contract.

With a starting weight of 2.57 pounds, the HP Mini 110 offers a 10.1 inch LED anti-glare widescreen display, 1GB of memory, an Intel Atom processor, a 160GB hard drive(1), and an HP webcam with an integrated microphone. It comes with HP QuickSync to enable automatic synching of files saved on the Mini with a home or work PC when connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Plus, the HP Mini 110 is backed by superb HP service and support.
