AT&T announced today that it will start offering netbooks with 3G service plans. The only issue is that AT&T only offers this in Atlanta and Philadelphia as a trial for now.
AT&T offers a variety of netbooks with built-in AT&T 3G wireless capabilities at aggressive promotional prices starting at $49.99 with the purchase of AT&T "Internet at Home and On the Go" broadband services. In Europe subsidized netbooks with a 3G service are already a very big hit.
The Internet at Home and On the Go package that combines home and mobile broadband starting as low as $59.95 per month, including access to the nation's fastest 3G network and unlimited domestic access to the nation's largest Wi-Fi network with nearly 20,000 AT&T Hot Spots.
The Netbooks available in AT&T stores include the Acer Aspire One, Dell Inspiron Mini 9 and Mini 12, and LG Xenia.
Promotional prices range from $49.99 to $249.99 with the purchase of an AT&T Internet at Home and On the Go plan, which includes an AT&T DataConnect plan and AT&T Fast Access DSL, starting at $59.95 per month. Without those AT&T services, these mini laptops range in price from $449.99 to $599.99.
With the purchase of a two-year AT&T DataConnect plan only, mini laptop pricing ranges from $99.99 to $349.99. AT&T is offering two mobile DataConnect plans in the trial, including a 200MB plan for $40 per month and a 5GB plan for $60 per month - options that meet the needs of casual to occasional data users, as well as frequent and heavy users.
In addition to mini laptops, the trial will also feature an award winning, ultraportable laptop with built-in 3G capabilities: the Lenovo X200 for $749.99 with Internet at Home and On the Go. The laptop is available for $849.99 with a two-year DataConnect plan only.
