T-Mobile and ASUS will offer the first package that marked rollout in the German market at the end of March 2008. With the EeePC 4G pioneering the first of a new generation of mobile Internet devices and 300 free WLAN hours at T-Mobile HotSpots included, users will enjoy mobile Internet at top speeds for EUR 299.
