Yes it's true, that promotion starts on the 20th of June. You can get that or a mini flip video camera. You can also get HBO and Cinemax free for 3 months. But only for NEW FiOS customers.
Understand it well though. I called about it, and it's not a laptop, it doesn't have a hard drive, it's just a netbook, for emails and web stuff. from wifi. Very limited, but kind of cool.
Sounds like it will be an awesome promotion.
The "NetBook" has 16GB solid state hard drive, 1 gb memory, 3 usb ports, wireless capability. You can easily expand your hard drive space with USB hard drives and/or USB solid state drives. This is designed to do everything over the internet, which is possible easily now with the excellent speeds from verizon.
