The Verizon/HP Mini 1000 leaked document parade continues. Last time we checked in on our heroes, Verizon was preparing to start offering a subsidized HP Mini 1000 on May 17th to customers who sign up for a long term service plan. Now Engadget has snagged another leaked memo, this time setting the price structure.
It looks like you’ll be able to pick up an HP Mini 1000 with an integrated 3G modem for $199.99 after rebate when you sign up for a 2 year service contract. If that kind of commitment scares you, you’ll be able to get the same netbook for $349.99 when you sign up for a 1 year contract.
Verizon claims that the same netbook will cost you $519.99 with no service plan. But you can certainly find a netbook with the similar features (Intel Atom N270 CPU, 10.1 inch, 1024 x 576 pixel display, 802.11b/g WiFi, and Bluetooth) for under $400. But it probably wouldn’t come with a 3G modem or be as thin and light as the HP Mini 1000, which measures just 1 inch thick at its thickest point.
