Samsung P200

Expanding its P-series notebook series, Samsung today launched an early wave of CeBIT announcements with the P200. The thin, 12-inch notebook competes in the increasingly heated ultraportable field and promises an unusually tough case that can handle day-to-day use without the fragility of some small computers. The small size also does not preclude respectable battery life, according to Samsung: the standard battery provides just over 3 hours of real-world use, thanks in part to the use of more recent (though unspecified) Core 2 Duo processors.

In an unusual addition for the category, the P200 is also coated with a "silver nano" powder on the keyboard to prevent it from spreading germs to other users. Samsung's portable also plays host to a 1.3-megapixel webcam, a 6-in-1 card reader, and an ExpressCard slot. Graphics are provided through an ATI-branded Radeon Xpress 1250. Pricing and ship dates are unavailable, though the P200 is likely to be available primarily in Europe and Korea.
