Verizon to offer subsidized Gateway netbook soon

According to a leaked document, wireless provider Verizon will soon begin offering its second subsidized netbook with the upcoming addition of the Gateway LT2016u, Engadget reported on Monday. The computer will be sold on a two-year data contract, and like the first Verizon-subsidized netbook, the HP Mini 1151NR, will use Qualcomm's Gobi data modem to access Verizon's 3G data network. Otherwise, the netbook packs a 10.1-inch display with a 1024x600-pixel resolution, a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive.

There is also a built-in VGA webcam, Wi-Fi capability and preloaded Windows XP Home in the 2.95-pound portable. Verizon will apparently price the LT2016U at $150 after both signing the contract and a a $100 mail-in rebate. It should become available on October 4th. In comparison, the HP Mini 1151NR costs $200 after the rebate and on a two-year contract. Data plans for either of the devices start at $40 per month.
