The cost will make you wince.
AT&T has just sent our a press release announcing an extension to their line of subsidized netbooks and notebooks. In addition, they have just started to offer something called the DataConnect Pass, which is a pay-as-you-go data service that needs no long-term contract.

The new netbooks/notebooks include the Acer Aspire AS1830, Aspire One 532h netbook and the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 HD. They will be available online and, in the case of the Mini 10 and the AS 1830, in AT&T retail stores.

DataConnect plan options include a $15 day pass (100 MB) a $30 week pass (300 MB) and a $50 month pass (1 GB). Sure, the portions are small and the price is a little nail-biting, but at least it offers a short-term, contract-free 3G connection option. Just don't stream anything.
