The first 4G LTE netbook to launch on the Verizon 4G LTE Network.

The Verizon Wireless netbook is now playing host to its first 4G LTE netbook thanks to a joint effort between Verizon and Compaq. The 10.1-inch Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr is the netbook that’s been outfitted with a 4G LTE modem.

Verizon is offering the Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr for $499.99, more than your usual netbook but this one does come with 4G LTE. The plans that can be purchased for the netbook start at $30 per month and go up to as high as $80, but there is no unlimited data option for the Compaq netbook.

Verizon lists the main specifications for the Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr as such:

  • 4G LTE – customers can expect download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in 4G Mobile Broadband coverage areas
  • Windows® 7 Home Starter 32-bit
  • 10.1” WSVGA Anti-glare LED Display (1024 x 600)
  • 1.66 GHz Intel® Atom™ Processor N455
  • 250 GB hard drive
  • Memory: 1 GB DDR3 RAM
  • VGA webcam with integrated digital microphone
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Multi-format digital media card reader for SD cards, multimedia cards, memory stick and memory stick pro
  • Weight: 3.10 lbs

The data plans mentioned above go like this:

  • $30 monthly access for 2 GB monthly allowance
  • $50 monthly access for 5 GB monthly allowance
  • $80 monthly access for 10 GB monthly allowance

The overall value proposition of the 4G LTE Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr is iffy and depends heavily on your reliance on mobile broadband in your daily life. This netbook is meant for a business traveller who’s constantly on the go around the United States, if you fit that description the $499 Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr is something to be explored at your local Verizon Wireless shop.
