Vodafone New Zealand offers Dell Inspiron Mini 9 with $0 payment on a mobile data plan
Vodafone New Zealand is now offering the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 complete with an 8GB capacity and 1GB of mobile data for $74.95 a month on a 24-month contract offered by Vodafone. Or, users can upgrade to 3GB of mobile data for $90 a month on a 24-month contract.

Either way customers pay nothing up front for the Dell Inspiron Mini 9.

Weighing in at only 1.035kg, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 includes a built-in webcam, Bluetooth, sealed keyboard, solid state disc (SSD) drive, and an 8.9-inch glossy LED display (1024x600). Users will also appreciate increased battery life and network reception with integrated mobile broadband compared to using a USB modem.

With its inbuilt 3G data card, the Inspiron Mini 9 is a small, easy-to-carry computer that is always ready to connect to ther online world - browsing the Web, chatting with friends, blogging, streaming content, uploading photos or enjoying favourite online videos, music and games.

“As a market segment, netbooks are growing faster than laptops or desktops and are expected to capture 20-30% of the market in New Zealand by the end of the year. Netbooks open-up a new form of Internet use called ‘Internet snacking’ where customers can dip in to check their favourite site whenever and wherever they are within our coverage area,” says Paul Toomey, Vodafone’s GM of Product and Pricing.

Evan Williams, GM of Consumer Sales and Marketing for Dell Australia and New Zealand said, “Customers want more portability, they want longer battery lives and better connectivity. With Vodafone and the Inspiron Mini 9, they get just that, with an up-front purchase price of $0 on the relevant Vodafone two-year plan”.

Vodafone’s Netbook Broadband Everyday plan offers 1GB of connectivity per month while its Netbook Broadband Pro plan offers 3GB per month. The data allowances on both plans can be doubled for an additional $10 as part of Vodafone’s bundle insurance offer.

The Inspiron Mini 9 laptops are available from 1 April at selected Vodafone retailers and online at vodafone.co.nz.
