Verizon to get Ion-based netbook

Verizon is poised to kick off the launch of Windows 7 this week with two netbooks as a leaked document has shown its plans. Both the HP Mini 311 and the Mini 110 are due to reach the provider along with Windows 7 on Thursday and will be partly subsidized, with Engadget showing the higher-end Mini 311 dropping to $250 after agreeing to a contract and a $100 mail-in rebate while the Mini 110 will cost $200 on similar terms.

The Mini 311 should be the first subsidized netbook to use NVIDIA's Ion chipset and so will support HD video (outside of Flash) as well as some modern 3D. Outside of built-in 3G, Verizon's netbook will hew close to the original with a 1.6GHz Atom, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and an 11.6-inch display as stock. The 10-inch Mini 110 has just 1GB of RAM and Intel graphics but is otherwise similar to the original non-3G version.
