Austrian telecom offers a free netbook

Written by Fuad Abazovic

For a 24-month €29 subscription


This has been rumored to happen a long time ago, but at least Austria got it’s so-called free notebooks with a mobile Internet contract. You have these deals in countries like U.K. for a while now, but this is the first time it has happened in smaller ones such as Austria.

The principle is simple, you pay 0 euro for notebook but you bond yourself to a 24-month mobile Internet subscription and you pay 29 euro each month for that. This is quite expensive for Austria and mobile internet as 3 will give you 15 GB for 20 € or Telering will offer 6GB for only 12 euro; but the others won't give you a "free" netbook.

A1's Netbook Q10 air in white has an integrated HSDPA 7.2Mbit modem, which will make things easier. The machine comes with a 160GB hard drive and respectable 6-cell battery. Austrian telecom, also known as A1, claims 4.5 hours battery life with HSDPA on which sounds like a decent score. If you are in Austria and you care about these deals and do need a small netbook, this might be the thing for you.

You can grab one here.
