"While the iPad may have stolen some thunder from the world of netbooks, there are still plenty of small and portable devices with Windows 7 and a keyboard ready to deliver on the go productivity and in the case of the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 4G from T-Mobile, do it with the speed of 4G."
Offering speedy 4G T-Mobile connectivity (5Mbps reported, assuming downstream, fallback to 3G, where available), specs include Windows 7 Starter Edition, an Intel Atom N450 at 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, 10.1-inch glossy 1024x600 screen, 92% keyboard, webcam, and a 6-cell battery that gets a bit over 6 hours of usage. Targeted at business users, online pricing for the Mini 10 4G starts at $229 on a two-year contract, or $449 retail, plus a monthly fee for WAN connectivity - $40 per month for 5GB (overage free/reduced speed after cap is reached) data. Are we ready for 4G? I sure am.
