A signature feature of the product is its built-in Verizon 3G service - which provides up to 100 megabytes of data transmission per month for free, for the first 24 months. But you can't use the free service until you sign up for a Verizon account with a credit card. Verizon then assigns the laptop a phone number - it's treating the device as if it's another phone on the network, apparently. Options include $10 per day for unlimited data and $20 per month for 1 gigabyte.

The system is really minimal - there's no traditional desktop, only a browser window that fills up the screen. To open multiple windows you open additional tabs in the browser.
