kiraThis is the first-step towards free mininote computers with contracts because Airis and Telefonica (Spain) have got together to subsidise the normal 299 Euro cost of the VIA-based Kira down to 99 Euro when you sign up for 'Duo 3Mb' which appears to an ADSL contract at 40 Euro per month.

I find it strange that it's combined with an ADSL contract because this type of mobile mininote would make a perfect PC for promoting 3.5G Internet contracts. The Phone Shop might start offering it with 3G soon though. According to an article in Business Mobile (France), the mobile phone reseller will start selling it on the 24th April. Expect free 3G USB sticks or heavy discounting.

The Airis Kira is currently in the database as the Pioneer Dreambook Light and is available in Spain and France. It is also known as the Nortec Gecko.
