I can’t say this ever occurred to me before, but an Asus Eee PC is cheaper than an iPhone. So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised to see wireless carriers subsidizing Eee PCs. After all, it’s cheaper than subsidizing some cellphone models, and carriers have been doing that for years.

So here’s the deal. If you’re in the UK and you want to sign up for a 2 year T-Mobile contract through PowerUp Mobile, you can get a free Eee PC 2G Surf and a USB modem so you can surf the web on the go using your new wireless service. The contract will set you back £35/month and the offer is good until June 15th.
