It's the not the first laptop to sport Verizon Wireless's LTE -- the HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr grabbed that title about a week ago -- but the Compaq Mini CQ10-688nr is being touted by VZW as its first netbook to pack the technology. The 10-inch system, which was first announced back in January, packs 250GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, and a multicard reader into a three-pound frame. Oh, and you also get access to HP's Cloud Drive -- you don't want that 4G technology to go to waste, do you? The netbook will go on sale via Verizon's site on August 4th for $450.
