It’s official: Dell launches Inspiron Mini 9 with Vodafone Europe

Oh baby! Remember last night I reported a tip about Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 ultra-mobile device coming, possibly to Vodafone?

It’s arriving across Vodafone Europe in late September. I just got the release from them.

It’s obviously got built-in HSDPA broadband. You’ll be able to get it directly from Dell or from a Vodafone store (or Vodafone Online).

Weighing in at only 1.035 kg, the Inspiron Mini 9 is the perfect Internet companion, delivering maximum connectivity in a slim, sleek, piano black design. Its features, including sealed keyboard and reliable solid state disc (SSD) memory storage, bright 8.9-inch glossy LED display (1024×600), and built-in webcam, are designed to offer the customer easy, convenient Internet browsing, instant messaging, and rapid music and video downloads.

Let’s hear from Andrew at Vodafone:

Andrew Sangster, Director of PC Connectivity, Vodafone commented “The recent acceleration in the take up of mobile broadband has demonstrated just how hungry consumers are for Internet access. Building on our long relationship with Dell, the availability of the Inspiron Mini 9 will further enhance what a customer can achieve with mobile broadband whilst on the move. Today’s announcement marks the next step in the evolution of mobile broadband services bringing mobile broadband into the hands of many more customers.”

And from Michael at Dell:

Michael Lombardo, VP & General Manager, Consumer, Dell Europe said “Technology has become an essential part of how people connect with one another – whether it’s surfing the Web, chatting with friends, keeping updated on the latest news, sharing photos or social networking. Dell is committed to providing consumers with technology that allows them to connect any place, any time with mobile broadband.”

Country availability and pricing is coming soon. If Vodafone subsidise it and make it 20 or 30 quid a month on, say, a 24-month contract, I’ll have one. Definitely.

And so will you, right?
