Get a new laptop for 99 cents

Sprint is apparently teaming up with Best Buy to offer a 99-cent netbook if you sign up for a two-year, $60-a-month 3G service contract.

All three carriers have invested billions of dollars in their networks, but you can’t recoup your costs and turn a profit if you can’t get customers on the network.

You have to get paying customers, and at 99 cents for a netbook, Sprint might do just that.
