Rogers Announces HP Mini 110 Netbook with Integrated HSDPA

Rogers HSPA NetbookAs great as that USB Rocket Stick may be, it’s just much more convenient when your wireless device has integrated connectivity with the cellular network. You could surf the web on your BlackBerry or iPhone, but now Rogers is offering Canada’s first 3.5G embedded netbook.

It was announced earlier today that Rogers Wireless would be carrying the HP Mini 110 Series netbooks and these will come with embedded mobile broadband technology to connect to the web whereever you have access to the Rogers HSPA network. They say that this network, maxing out at 7.2Mbps, is up to three times faster than any other in Canada.

Regarding the netbook itself, the HP Mini gets a 10.1-inch display, 92% full-size keyboard, Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. There’s nothing too out of the ordinary here, aside from the embedded wireless broadband.

Don’t expect to get a huge subsidy on the netbook, unfortunately, as Rogers still wants $299.99 for the HP Mini with a qualifying two-year contract. The cheapest plan is $25.00 a month for 500MB, but you have to add the $6.95 SAF, other fees, and taxes to that too.

Look for the HSPA-embedded HP Mini 110 Series PC at your local Future Shop and Best Buy.
