Boy Genius Report has it on very good faith that Verizon will be bringing out the HP Mini 1151NR netbook on May 17th, which not-so-coincidentally is the same date Verizon is releasing the MiFi.

BGR doesn't seem as firm about the price as the date, but still fairly confident that it'll sell for $199 with a 2-year contract. That's actually kind of a crappy deal; the HP Minis start at around $350 and you're not locked in to a pricey monthly fee. But maybe they'll offer some kind of incentive (involving the MiFi?) that'll make it worth your while. [Boy Genius Report]
