ATT gives free Acer notebook with WP7 phones

AT&T on Friday started up another Windows Phone 7 promo in hopes of driving sales of Microsoft's mobile OS. Those who buy either an LG Quantum or a Samsung Focus will get an Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830 for free. The 11.6-inch system comes in its base spec with a 1.2GHz Core i3 and Windows 7 Home Premium.

The promo starts from February 13 and lasts until March 20.

The carrier has been one of the most adamant in supporting WP7 and last fall had a two-for-one phone deal. AT&T hasn't said how well the platform has been selling, but usually reserves these deals to help move slow-selling hardware. That the offer is limited to WP7 also points to Microsoft being involved.
