T-Mobile has already been offering an Eee PC that comes along with a mobile broadband package, but up until this point its been used with an external modem. However, based on a recent press release it looks like we can soon be expecting to see a new version of the Eee PC 901 with built-in 3G capability, which has been dubbed the Eee PC 901 GO.
According to the release, Asus will be working with T-Mobile to offer an “ASUS Connection Manager” which will allow the 3G-capable Eee to easily and quickly connect with the network when launched. In addition they also mentioned that users would get up to five hours of surfing time. As of now T-Mobile has not yet released any information as to when this service will be available, they also failed to mention how much the service will cost, or how much the Eee PC 901 GO will retail for.
All in all this sounds like a great bit of news, but sadly this particular model is only scheduled to hit T-Mobile…in Germany. Although we do not expect it to happen, we can only hope it will eventually show up in other areas. I for one have pretty much left my Eee PC in favor of the HP Mini-Note, but with built-in 3G connectivity, this may be enough to convince me to come back and I feel pretty safe saying that I would not be alone in that move.
