At this year’s CTIA show, T-Mobile have officially announced that they’ll debut in the netbook market with the new Dell Inspiron Mini 10. A webConnect compatible machine, the T-Mobile Mini 10 comes with a 10.1-inch WSVGA display (1024 x 600), has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor under the hood, only 1GB of RAM and a 1.3 megapixel webcam.

The interesting part about the Mini 10 is that it runs Windows 7 Starter Edition and features a 92% full keyboard which comes in handy for those with fingers like mine.

The specs list also states that the 3 pounds machine has a stereo speakers, a 5-in-1 card reader, 3x USB slots, a VGA port and a 6-cell battery that keeps it running for up to 8 hours in work mode, or 11 hours when in stand-by.

Speaking of webConnect, T-Mobile will be packing the Inspiron Mini 10 with their proprietary software that will give users 3G speeds while on the go, along with access to “thousands” of available T-Mobile HotSpot Network locations across the United States.

On T-Mobile, this Dell Mini 10 will cost you $199 (costs $299 on Dell, sans 3G connectivity) if you get your name on a two-year contract. It should be available now at select T-mobile retail locations and online.

So what do you guys think? Is it worth it, or better pay $100 more and have the Mini 10 work with Sprint or Verizon?
