Verizon Wireless has finally confirmed that it will launch a subsidised HP Mini 1000 on May 17, following recent speculation. All of the rumours were spot on, with Verizon planning to sell the HP Mini 1151NR for $199 with a two year contract.
The specs of the HP Mini 1151NR are as previously thought. It has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 576) display and is powered by a 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU, 1GB RAM and 80GB hard drive. It comes with a 3-cell battery and weighs 1.1kg (2.45lbs). An optional 6-cell battery will also be available from Verizon, but retails for an additional $130.
Service plans start at $39.99 for 250MB of data per month or $59.99 per month for 5GB a month of data usage. The HP Mini 1151NR will be available in both stores and online from this Sunday.
