Today LG announced that it will for the first time be selling a netbook to U.S. customers. The LG X120 will be only available at The Shack stores and web site for $180 after rebates with new two-year data plan agreement. The X120 weighs 2.8 pounds, and features SmartOn, which boots certain applications much faster to allow for quicker access to the Internet. Other features include a 10.1-inch display, 1.3 megapixel web cam, stereo speakers and up to seven hours of battery life.

In a LOT of parts of the country AT&T's network is excellent. If you're planning on using it where you have mostly AT&T 3G coverage why not get it? Their network is faster than Verizon's.

I think you'd be surprised how much netbooks don't get sold as it is, and the one's that do don't really max out the bandwidth because surfing is point and click done.

Whereas some devices are constantly dynamically pinging the netowrk and drainin...

I don't think LG cares as long as AT&T is willing to write those checks.

I wouldn't describe AT&T's network as "tattered". Tmobile's network is tattered. AT&T's network is...overwhelmed. T...
