Sprint's Dell Mini 10 with 3G
Sprint today confirmed a late rumor by launching a subsidized version of the Dell Mini 10. Its version has an internal EVDO Revision A modem for 3G access and should usually pull between 600Kbps and 1.4Mbps downloads in real-world conditions. It also appears to be the original Mini 10 reviewed here with a 1.33GHz Atom, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and Windows XP Home.
The Sprint version drops to $200 in price versus the usual $300, but only when joined to a two-year contract for a $60 monthly data plan and a $100 mail-in rebate. Both online and retail stores should already have the PC in stock.
