Operator 3 has unveiled a Mobile Broadband package that includes a free netbook. Customers who sign up to a 24-month contract at £20 per month will receive the Compaq Mini 700 Netbook, a free dongle and 1GB monthly data allowance. In addition, customers will also be able to send 100 free laptop to mobile phone text messages.
The Compaq Mini 700 Netbook which weighs an impressive 1.02kg, sports a 10.2-inch high definition widescreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, 60GB hard drive, Bluetooth capability, webcam, Wi-Fi and two USB ports. 3's latest Mobile Broadband Bundle complete with Compaq Mini 700 Netbook will be available to buy from 3Stores and online from 30 January.
Netbooks are becoming increasingly popular amongst both operators and mobile manufacturers. Vodafone recently co-launched the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Netbook, while LG unveiled their own LG Netbook X110 available through Vodafone, Orange and 3 last October.
