I'm happy with my Aspire One: the latest versions have a 3G modem built in, it 
seems, though you would be best to check that.   Current models are 8.9", but 
they have announced a 10.1"  model for February.

The linux on them is a bit weird, but I reckon there will be a fuilly 
functioning alternative within the next couple of weeks - there are two or 
three on which nearly everything works perfectly, and with the usual sharing 
of information they are all gradually ironing out wrinkles.  (Issues have 
been around odd hardware, especially the card readers which, if empty, are 
not visible to the system at all on boot).
