Samsung's N310 GO rubber-clad netbook has officially arrived in the US, with sales of the distinctive ultraportable kicking off at Newegg and CDW.  The N310 has a 10.1-inch display and uses Intel's 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive.

While what's inside may be pretty much standard for most netbooks, it's the outside of the N310 that makes it special.  Samsung call the casing "haptic styling", which reeks of PR-gush but basically describes the tactile rubber shell and curvy corners.  Open it up, and there's a chiclet keyboard, together with a 1.3-megapixel webcam and microphone.

Four versions of the Samsung N310 GO are available from Newegg, differing by color rather than specification.  The navy blue, black, "sunset" red and "mint" blue netbooks are available now, priced at $449.99.
