If this Radioshack ad is to be believed, the Acer Aspire One will be among the first netbooks to be sold subsidized with a data contract here in the U.S. Otherwise, it'll set you back around $350 without the data plan (and an untasty $500 if you buy it at RadioShack without the contract, so don't do that). The offer looks to be good only for a week (or, that's just the week the flyer is current), so watch for it starting on December 14 if you're in the market for a netbook and a 3G plan. [Engadget]
That is sweet.....no...really, that's awesome. I'm imagining someone coming into this comment thread and coming up with a reason I haven't thought of as to why this actually sucks, be it the Death Star telco, Acer sucking the balls of a random beast of burden, it's made out of kitten bones or it was splooged on by Chinese factory workers, but this makes me wanna get it just a bit.
