Here in Saudi Arabia we have lots of nurses leaving in the hospital accommodation and some of them does not have an Internet connection at their room accommodation, So they usually pay a lot by connecting their mobile phone thru their laptop just to get connection. Although most of the time they fail to connect. And there are lots of OFW leaving in a isolated place where Internet connection is not available.
The 3.75G equipped Eee PC will allow users to download data at up to 7.2Mbps. Asus are launching the 3.75G equipped Eee PC 901 in October this year, so expect most phone companies to start offering this laptop for free when purchasing a plan with a contract.
