The new devices include, the Samsung Go Netbook and Acer Aspire One, both equipped with Windows 7 starter from Microsoft, and available for $199 after mail-in rebate through an AT&T promotion card and a two-year data service contract.

According to AT&T, the new Samsung Go Netbook comes with 10-inch screen and weighs 2.8 pounds.

The Acer Aspire One, which weighs around 2.2 pounds, also includes two built in speakers, three USB 2.0 ports, a video conferencing feature and a built-in webcam.

The netbooks also come equipped with AT&T communication manager (ACM) 7.0 preloaded to help customers manage their usage and connections.
