While most carriers seem content to simply offer netbooks from all the usual suspects, Taiwan Mobile is going one pretty big step further and offering its own branded netbook. The carrier doesn't look to be making any attempts to break the mold, however, with its 10-inch W101 netbook packing the standard issue Atom N270 processor, an 8GB SSD drive, and Windows XP for an OS, although it is on the lighter end of the scale at just two pounds even. As you might expect, while the netbook will run upwards of $400 on its own, Taiwan Mobile is apparently offering a number of bundles that should bring the price down considerably if you're willing to sign off on the next few years of your mobile life.
