Verizon has announced plans to offer two 4G-capable netbooks for the company’s new LTE mobile broadband network in the first half of the year. While one still remains shrouded in mystery, the other netbook is the Compaq Mini CQ10, which is basically a rebranded version of the HP Mini 210.

The netbook has a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N455 CPU, 1GB of DDR3 memory, a 250GB hard drive, and a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display. It runs Windows 7 Starter, and overall is pretty standard fare for a netbook — except that this model will support Verizon’s 3G and 4G networks.

There’s no word on pricing yet.

  1. Hey Brad, not really related to your post, but what happened to the smartbooks? you are at the CES right? So, I was wondering if there are news in that area, I’m looking forward for one of those, but I would like one that plays well with GNU/Linux, so I can put Debian on it.

    1. They’ve pretty much turned into tablets. With a few exceptions (mostly
      from no-name Chinese companies), I’m not seeing a lot of ARM-based
      netbooks at CES this year, and I haven’t really run across any with 3G
      or 4G capabilities unless you count the upcoming Asus slider.
