Verizon is really working on getting a device for every taste on to its 4G LTE network it seems.  Last week came the announcement of a computer and tablet with support for the network included, and now here comes a netbook that will also allow you to get things done while being mobile.  Seeing as last week’s laptop was from HP, it does make some sense that this newest additional netbook is from Compaq, a brand the company purchased several years ago.

While last week’s HP Pavilion DM1 wasn’t exactly a monster device, the Compaq Mini is very clearly a netbook due to its size and specs.  The hard drive is fairly impressive at 250 GB for a device of this size, but the remainder of the specs just leave you kind of going ho-hum.  With the multitude of choices you have out there now for other solutions, it’s surprising that netbooks are still lurking around, but not only are they, you can lock yourself down to a data contract with one as well.
