Verizon's HP Mini 1151NR debuts May 17th

HP Mini 1151NR netbook

Verizon has announced it will be getting into the subsidized netbook business with its release of the HP Mini 1151NR, shipping the model May 17th. The netbook is similar to the reference version with a 10-inch LED display, a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB RAM and an 80GB hard drive loaded with Windows XP. New, however, is built-in 3G for Verizon's EVDO network that lets it reach the Internet when its Wi-Fi falls short.

The netbook will be available for purchase online at a price of $200, or roughly half the cost of a typical non-3G HP Mini 1000, after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a new two-year activation on a data plan. Service plans through Verizon begin at $40 a month for 250MB of data and extend to $60 a month for 5GB.
