As we've been waiting for, the Dell Mini 9 is now available with an HSDPA/EDGE 3G upgrade option. Priced at $125 ($120 of which is refundable with a 2-year AT&T agreement starting at $60/month), XP versions of new Mini 9s (not Mini 12s) can include the Dell Wireless 5530 HSDPA Internal Mini-card by Ericsson. We'll need a lower subscription cost before we jump on these data plan bundles just yet, but we're happy to see 3G making its way into netbooks. Maybe these things can compete with smartphones after all. [Dell]
I would have jumped on this when I purchased my Mini 9 but I doubt for $120 and I have been an AT&T customer for years, so no rebate for moi.
Eh, this would never replace my unlocked HTC Diamond but I think the option would have been nice.
$120 was around 25% of the purchase price and I bought the 'fastest' model. Eh.
