Asus Eee PC 901 3G+ Available in October
With the new Eee PC 901 3G+, Asus integrated 3G connectivity straight out of the box for their new netbook. Does this mean you will have to buy it from a cell phone operator like Verizon, T-Mobile, and friends?
In other regions (Europe), it’s the case. You can purchase the netbook from a cell phone operator and get it along with a data plan. I’m not sure if you can buy it anywhere, but to get the 3G functionality, that’s what you need to do over there. Pricing is similar to cell phones whereas you will get a better price for the device if you get it along with a data plan and a contract.
We don’t know the exact prices for the American version, but the pricing in France will be at 279€ with a contract and 399€ without contract. Theoretically, pricing should be similar but in our currency.
