UK mobile carrier Orange plans to offer customers an Asus Eee PC 900 and a 3G modem for a monthly fee of £25 per month. Silicon.com reports that the goal is to compete with mobile operator O2 who offers for the iPhone for a bit more money. But seriously, is there anybody out there trying desperately to decide between an Eee PC and an iPhone? One is a computer, and the other is a phone! They’re kind of in different classes, don’t you think?
Still, whether the move is going to help Orange compete with O2 or not, it’s nice to see another company offering a tiny laptop/3G bundle. A few weeks ago we heard that Acer is pursuing similar deals with European mobile operators.
