Sprint to offer Netbooks for $1 w/ activation

submitted on July 6, 2009 by MikeG in "Products / Gadgets"
pretty interesting

If you thought a $99 netbook might spur demand, what do you think a 99-cent netbook will do? We’ll soon find out, because Sprint is subsidizing Compaq’s 1040DX netbook. Customers can get the offer in a local Best Buy and have to activate the embedded EVDO module with Sprint for the one-dollar device. The same netbook with service through Verizon Wireless or AT&T is $199.99, while a non-contract price is $389.99, as shown on the ad page:

    WOW GREAT deal!!! But I guess to get a new costumer you have to catch their eye. What is the early termination fee? If it is like the iPhone ($170) than it is a steal. Buy the netbook and then pay the early termination fee.

    I looked into this out of curiosity at my local Best Buy, and to get the deal you have to sign up for Sprint's broadband service, which is only a mere $60 per month.
