Sprint has announced their latest notebook offering, which just so happens to be an Ultrabook. And for those who need a bit of useless knowledge, this makes Sprint the first US wireless carrier to offer an Ultrabook. That bit aside though, the Ultrabook in question is the Lenovo IdeaPad U310. Interestingly enough, Sprint will be offering the Lenovo IdeaPad U310 as part of a bundle package and for those wondering why — the IdeaPad U310 does not have any built-in cellular connectivity. Anyway, Sprint will be bundling the Ultrabook with either a Novatel Wireless or an Overdrive Pro 3G/4G mobile hotspot modem.
As for the pricing, the package deal will be $849.98 (regardless of which modem you choose). The difference will come with the monthly pricing afterward. Sprint will be offering the data for $34.99 (3GB of 3G /4G data) or $49.99 (6GB of 3G/4G data) per month. These prices assume a two-year agreement, however those who make the purchase will get three months of free data service. And just to clarify those three free months, those will come as a service credit and start on “the second or third invoice.”
