Verizon to bring HP Pavillion dm1 for $599
Verizon Wireless will soon offer the refreshed HP Pavilion dm1 netbook introduced at CES in its stores. The 4G-connected PC, the dm1-3010nr, is less than 1.2 inches thick and sports an 11.6-inch, 1366x768 screen. AMD's 1.6GHz dual-core E350 Fusion chip does duty under the hood, and there is 2GB of RAM onboard.
The 320GB hard drive contains Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Wi-Fi and a VGA camera with a digital microphone are built-in, and there is a multi-format memory card reader in the side. The netbook weighs just over 3.5lbs. The 4G radio and Verizon's network promise download speeds of between five and 12Mbps and upload speeds of between two and 5Mbps.
Verizon will sell the dm1-3010nr online for $600 and isn't promoting the 2GB plan for the notebook, instead focusing on a $50/5GB monthly plan and an $80/10GB plan.
