Verizon Confirms Netbook Plans, HP Mini Seems Most Likely

Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney confirmed that Verizon will begin selling 3G-enabled netbooks by June, a statement no doubt encouraged by the leak of a possible Verizon sales sheet featuring an HP Mini netbook.

Raney did not elaborate on price, exact release date, or which netbook models would be offered, but Boy Genius Report has a leaked shot of a Verizon price list with an HP Mini 1000. BGR speculates the Mini could be offered at a $99 price point with a 2-year contract, which seems a pretty good guess given its current $449 unsubsidized price. What do you guys think? Are you interested in a wireless carrier-subsidized netbook? [CNET and Boy Genius Report
