Dell Mini 10 gets 4G on Clear, Sprint

Dell on Friday gave the current-generation Mini 10 a new option for WiMAX. The system's usual 802.11g Wi-Fi card can be replaced with a combo 802.11n and WiMAX part that will give it up to 10Mbps on most any compatible network. In the US, the upgrade will tap into either Clear or Sprint 4G.

The swap-out adds $60 to the price of the netbook, which is otherwise unchanged and isn't hardware-locked to a particular carrier. It's not known how much WiMAX will affect the PC's roughly 9.5 hours of battery life, but systems ordered today won't ship until early March.
