AT&T Subsidizing 10.1" Aspire Ones, Through Costco

Illustration for article titled ATT Subsidizing 10.1 Aspire Ones, Through Costco

Subsidized-on-contract netbooks aren't uncommon in Europe, but they're a rarity stateside. Now, as rumored, AT&T's probably going to sell more Acer Aspire Ones. Costco training materials point to the 10.1" model, available from May 11th.

The leak may have come from Costco, but it's reasonable to assume that you'll be able to pick up the notebook from AT&T directly. There are no pricing details in the report, but the $99 precedent set by AT&T's last foray into on-contract netbooking doesn't seem unrealistic. [BGR]

AT&T,

You should recalculate your business model, business strategy, and business concept.

What you should do is:

1. Lower the monthly service plan/rate. Make it US$19.99

I'm sure there are many users using AT&T service, especially iPhone users.

We're already paying US$100, and now you plan to have us put another US$60?

I hope you're not high, or I wonder what you're smoking.

Because, I'm telling you it's not going to work.

2. Remove the 5GBs cap.

Look at European counterparts, they're not put this and that limit.

3. STOP WASTING MONEY ON TV ADVERTISEMENT FOR YOUR "MORE BAR IN MORE PLACES".

Finally IMPROVE YOUR COVERAGE, and IMPROVE YOUR SO-CALL BARS!!!!

I can tell you, if you go to Europe, or Asia (Especially Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan and Korea). You'll never experience call-drop.

Not even if you have 1 bar.

I can talk or surf the web using 3G speed on a subway train that's hundreds feet underground.
