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.
