We’re just starting to see American telecoms like AT&T and Verizon begin bundling netbooks with 3G wireless data plans. But DigiTimes reports that Acer, Asus, and BenQ are selling a growing number of netbooks in Taiwan this way. The companies are partnering with local wireless providers including Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile, and Far EasTone Telecommunications.
In related news, more than half of all notebooks sold in Taiwan in July were netbooks. So yeah, I’m going to let that sink in for a while before saying anything about how some folks label the entire netbook category as a fad.
