Sprint launches LTE-ready CTL NL7 Chromebook for $299
America's fourth largest wireless carrier has teamed up with CTL to offer the CTL Chromebook NL7 for new subscribers. Users who sign up for the Sprint unlimited LTE data plan for $15 a month can put down an additional $299 for the system.
According to the press release, the combination of Google's cloud services and a LTE-enabled Chromebook should attract more businesses and Enterprise users to Sprint's data plan.
The specifications provided by Sprint aren't very detailed, but they get the point across that this is an entry-level Chromebook more akin to the budget Dell Chromebook 3181 rather than the fancy Google Pixelbook:
- Lightweight design with 11.6-inch LCD Display
- 12-hours of use (without LTE)
- Intel Processor
- 4GB of RAM
- Internal Storage up to 32GB
- Wireless Connections: Cat9 LTE, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2
- Ports: 2X USB3.0; 2X USB C; 1X Micro SD; 1X Audio Jack
- Built-in Webcam
- Chrome OS and built-in Chrome OS Accessibility features
Sprint will begin shipping the CTL Chromebook NL7 for its subscribers by mid-December.
