Acer 3G Netbook Official

As hinted at in a leaked flyer, Radio Shack tonight rolled out a special version of the Acer Aspire One with built-in 3G data. The all-black model holds a built-in HSPA modem that lets it connect to AT&T's network for Internet access when Wi-Fi isn't an option. The system itself sites at the higher end of Acer's spectrum with 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive bolstering the by-now standard 1.6GHz Atom chip and Windows XP Home.

The retailer treats the special Aspire One as though it were a cellphone and subsidizes the price heavily, bringing it down to $100 after signing a two-year contract for a PC data plan worth $60 per month or more. Radio Shack doesn't say whether the system is available on one-year or contract-free terms. The special configuration is available starting today but is said to only keep the fully discounted price until December 24th.
