Following the introduction of the HP Mini 1151NR earlier this year, Verizon's push into the brave new world of subsidized netbooks continues this coming Sunday with the Gateway LT2016u, essentially a warmed-over LT2000 with enough legalese attached to it to make sure you're a loyal Big Red customer for the next 24 months of your life. Like the Mini, the new Gateway features Qualcomm's Gobi tech to make sure you've got 3G data available essentially anywhere in the world, but otherwise, the specs aren't terribly interesting: 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 display, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive spinning at an uncreative 5400rpm, VGA webcam, Windows XP Home, and a package that tips the scales at 2.95 pounds (up a noticeable tick from the Mini's 2.45). If you sign up for a two-year deal, you're looking at $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate; a year ago, we were hoping these things would end up going for free on subsidy, but it looks like that dream might yet be a few years off.
