If you've always dreamed of committing to a two-year contract on a defunct wireless standard to get your hands on a subsidized netbook, today is your lucky day. Sprint may be done with WiMAX phones, but that's not stopping it from pushing forward with WiMAX netbooks. The Lenovo IdeaPad S205s will cost $199.99 on a two-year contract and come bundled with both 3G and WiMAX connectivity. In terms of specifications, it has a dual-core Intel Pentium U5600 processor running at 1.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 250GB of storage, and a run-of-the-mill 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display. The IdeaPad S205s is available from today in-store, over the phone, or via Sprint's website.
