Three months after becoming the first U.S. carrier to commercially embrace the sub-laptop market, AT&T today announced an expansion of its mobile broadband-enabled netbook lineup. The new devices, available in stores and online in the coming days, include an Acer Aspire One, the Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and the Lenovo S10.
AT&T also announced it will begin offering AT&T ConnecTech services specifically tailored for netbook customers through its more than 2,200 stores, providing three options of support for netbooks purchased from AT&T, with prices from $99 for remote online support to $199 for in-home technical support.
The Acer Aspire One will be available nationwide. The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and Lenovo S10 will be available in multiple stores and all devices will be available for purchase soon online and via other direct sales channels. The netbooks will cost $199.99 after mail-in rebate via AT&T Promotion Card with a two-year service contract.
AT&T also announced that it has revamped its more than 2,200 retail locations across the country. The company says its new store design will provide consumer and small business customers with a more interactive and informative hands-on experience when shopping for wireless, broadband, video and entertainment services, allowing them to test-drive services before they buy.
