Initial ChromeOS Netbooks will be tied to a Verizon Wireless Data plan

The Lovefest between Google GOOG and Verizon VZ continues. Live at YouTube event, Sundar Pichai, VP, Product Management at Google announced that Chrome Netbook owners would receive 100mb of free Verizon Internet access every month for two years. Additionally, plans would start at $9.99 with a no contract plan and will be managed on the desktop.

This is a very similar setup to Apple’s AAPL iPad plans with AT&T T in the U.S. where there is no dealing with the carrier directly.

Always being connected to the Internet is much more important to a Cloud computer than a traditional computer. Verizon is likely hoping people want more than 100mb/month.
