European mobile carrier Vodafone has announced plans to sell Dell Inspiron Mini 9 laptop’s bundled with 3G wireless modems. The laptops will be available for purchase at Vodafone stores throughout Europe and online.

The laptop should be available from Vodafone (or directly from Dell) in late September. There’s no word on exactly how much Vodafone will charge for the netbook. There’s been a lot of speculation that we could see wireless providers subsidize the cost of cheap netbooks like the Inspiron Mini 9 much as they do with cellphones. Buy into a multi-year contract and get a cheap or free computer.

In the UK, Carphone Warehouse is already offering a free Elonex Webbook with the purchase of a data plan.

thanks Martyn!
