HP Mini 311 and 110 Netbooks coming soon to Verizon
We all know that Windows 7 will be launching on Oct 22nd, and at the same time Verizon will be introducing their new high-end HP Mini 311-1037NR Netbook. It will be the first Verizon Netbook to feature the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system, and will come with a 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM, Intel Atom N720 1.6GHz processor, 11.6-inch 1366x768 resolution LED backlit display, NVIDIA ION graphics chipset, Global Roaming (CDMA/EVDO/UMTS/HSPA/GSM/GPRS/EDGE), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, Webcam with Mic, 5-in-1 Media Card Reader, and will come with a longer lasting 6-cell battery. The price of the HP Mini 311 will be $249.99, after a $100 rebate with a 2-year contract.

Verizon is also planing to replace the HP Mini 1151NR, once the stock is depleted, with the HP Mini 110-1046NR. It will continue to use Windows XP Home Edition with SP3, but will come with a 160GB HDD (up from 80GB). The rest of the specs remain unchanged, N720 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 10.1-inch 1024x576 resolution display, Global Roaming (CDMA/EVDO/UMTS/HSPA/GSM/GPRS/EDGE), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, Webcam with Mic, and a 5-in-1 Media Card Reader. The HP Mini 110 will be $199, after $100 rebate with a 2-year contract.

One of our tipsters told us today that of these two Netbooks will be the first out of 6 expected to be released over the next few months.

Aw crap. As an indirect retailer, I really don't care for the whole subsidized netbook thing. I have to spend a ton of money to put one netbook on the shelf, and I hate getting stuck with inventory nobody wants. Good for consumer choice, but I'll just keep selling aircards and mifis and send customers out to get their own netbooks, unless they special order.
