By default both sizes are limited to WiFi connectivity, unless an optional 3G USB stick ($49), which inserts into a concealed USB port, is purchased.

An HDMI output insures that full HD video can be fed to an HDTV, while the 8-inch G9 can display a 720p picture on its 1024×768 screen and the 10.1-inch version a 1280×800 display.
Both sizes will cost $279 and $349 respectively.
