AT&T to expand its 3G mini laptop lineup

Acer, Dell and Lenovo netbooks with AT&T’s 3G network

By CBR Staff Writer

AT&T has announced that it will soon expand its portfolio of embedded 3G mini laptops and plans to begin offering them through its 2,200 retail stores and through website, this summer.

According to AT&T, the expanded embedded device lineup will include Acer, Dell and Lenovo mini laptops and said pricing and availability will be announced later. AT&T netbooks will be able to access the internet through AT&T’s 3G network.

Ralph de la Vega, president and chief executive officer of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, said: Sleek, mobile and fast is all the rage and we’re going to answer that call with a lineup of the hottest mini laptops in the market.

“Our customers in the Atlanta and Philadelphia markets have responded well and the response isn’t limited to a specific demographic. We’re getting interest from tweens, teens, young adults, moms on the go and small business owners. Consumers and small business customers really seem to be attracted to the convenience and portability of this connected device.”

IDC has recently reported that by year end 2009 worldwide shipments of mini laptops could reach 22 million.
