Sprint will soon offer a 99-cent HP Mini 110c netbook to consumers, but unfortunately, that price doesn’t come without a lengthy 2-year broadband data contract at $60/month. The netbook features a “1.6GHz Atom [processor], 1GB of RAM and three-cell battery.”

We knew we’d see cheap / free subsidized netbooks eventually, and here we are: Best Buy and Sprint are offering up a Compaq-branded HP Mini 110c for just 99 cents when you sign a two-year data contract.
