Verizon Rolls Out Its First Netbook with 4G LTE Baked In

Paul Lilly

Verizon today announced the upcoming availability of the Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr netbook. What makes this netbook special is that it will be the first to use Verizon's 4G LTE network so customers can stream videos, video chat, and download music, movies, and photos on the go without having to hunt down a Wi-Fi hotspot. Verizon says customers will also have access to HP's CloudDrive, a digital filing cabinet for uploading or downloading files.

Compaq's Mini CQ10-688nr sports a 10.1-inch WSVGA LED display (1024x600), Intel Atom N455 processor (1.66GHz), 1GB of DDR3 memory, 250GB hard drive, VGA webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, multi-format card reader, and Windows 7 Home Starter 32-bit.

Verizon's 4G LTE network provides download speeds of 5Mbps to 12Mbps and upload speeds of 2Mbps to 5Mbps, provided you're in a 4G coverage area. Customers will have to commit to a 2-year service agreement with one of three Mobile Broadband plans, including $30/month for 2GB, $50/month for 5GB, or $80/month for 10GB.

The Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr will be available on August 4 for $450 (on contract).
