Dell Mini Inspiron coming to a UK operator shortly

I had a tip in this evening from a reader who reckons that the Dell Mini Inspiron — as seen by Gizmodo (pictures from Gizmodo too) — is heading to a UK operator shortly.

Almost every operator has got in on the laptops-for-30-quid-a-month thing — and they’ll thrown in a USB data dongle.


If my reader is right — and he’s highly placed within the mobile operator circles so I do credit his tip — a UK operator is preparing the launch of the Mini Inspiron.

It’s not just a gorgeous ultra-light notebook. Oh no. It’ll have HSDPA built-in.

Built right in. I’ll take two please. If this tip is half-way accurate, these things will be flying off the shelves. FLYING.

And what network?

Well it’d be rather convenient if I could simply add one of these to my Vodafone account.
