Samsung 10.2-inch Netbook breaks cover; October release planned

Chris Davies - Sep 11, 2008

Samsung’s entrance to the netbook market has appeared, together with some predictable specs.  The unnamed ultraportable is at the top end of netbooks in terms of size, with a 10.2-inch 1024 x 600 display, but like 99-percent of rivals is based on Intel’s 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor.

Storage options include an 80GB, 120GB or 160GB hard-drive, while RAM is given as 1GB.  Connectivity is wired ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth, there’s the usual 1.3-megapixel camera in the screen bezel, trio of USB ports and a 3-in-1 memory card reader.

Weight is listed as 2.9lbs, and the battery is a 6-cell unit with a predicted five hour runtime.  Color options will be white, blue and black.  The only price suggestion we have so far is $550 for its October release in Korea, but Samsung UK are also looking to have it available in that region at the end of October.
