Verizon to get the Gateway LT2016U Netbook on October 4th
So you though that the HP Mini 1151NR was going to be the only Netbook out for Verizon this year? Starting October 4th you'll now have a choice as the Gateway LT2016U will also become available. The main difference is that the Gateway LT2016U will have a 160GB HDD (80GB on the HP) and that the 10.1" display will support 1024x600 resolution (1024x576 on the HP). The remaining features are nearly identical: Windows XP Home Edition (SP3), Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Wi-Fi,Web Cam, and can be used on CDMA EVDO Rev A, UMTS/HSPA, and GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks. Unfortunately, the Gateway Netbook will weigh in at 2.95 pounds, opposed to the HP's 2.45 pounds. Pricing of the Gateway LT2016U will be $149.99 after a $100 rebate with a 2-year MobileBroadband contract, which is $50 less than the current price of the HP Mini.
