Yesterday marked Dell's entry into the mini-notebook market with the release of its Dell Inspiron Mini 9. The device offers up to 1GB of memory with a 8.9-inch LED display and is under 2.3 pounds. The Mini 9 also includes an integrated 3G component.
What was unknown at the time of the announcement was which telecommunications company the PC maker would partner with. That question has now been answered. PC World reports that the Mini 9 will have built-in mobile broadband from Vodafone, which will also resell the device. Vodfone will begin selling the Mini 9 later this month, although it is currently unknown in which countries it will offer the mini-notebook.
