T-Mobile still plans to throw a 3G modem in the Asus Eee PC 901 and begin selling netbooks capable of connecting to the company’s 3G wireless network in Europe. But while the Eee PC 901 Go, as it’s apparently called, was supposed to be released in mid-September, Einfach Eee reports that the date has been pushed back to October.

Johannes from Einfach Eee has also uncovered a few other interesting details:

  • The laptop will cost 399 Euros, or about $600 US, which is about 20 Euros more than the basic, non-3G Eee PC 901.
  • Customers will not have to sign up for a data plan, but the 3G modem will only work with T-Mobile, so you’ll either want to sign up for a separate plan or purchase a prepaid SIM card.
  • The Eee PC 901 Go will initially only be available in retail stores, not through the T-Mobile web site.
T-Mobile also plans to sell an Acer Aspire One in November, but that computer will be bundled with a 2 year service plan which brings the cost of the netbook down to just 1 Euro.
