India : Netbook makers keen for tie-ups with telecom operators.

Computer makers like Acer, Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Samsung Electronics are keen to make tie-ups with telecom operators to sell 3G-ready devices as demand for third-generation, or 3G, services and wireless broadband are increasing in India, according to a statement.

According to netbook manufacturers, such tie-ups will bundle a netbook along with subscription to 3G services.

While Acer is close to such agreements with Reliance Communications and Tata Teleservices for selling netbooks with built in EVDO capability, Samsung, which sells 3G netbooks in other markets, is working on introducing those models in India and exploring tie-ups with telecom firms.

HP is considering tie-up options, but was waiting for clarity on 3G services roll-out.
