Samsung NC310 Netbook

Samsung today quickly followed up on the recent launch of the NC20 by launching its third major netbook. The NC310 tries to capture attention through a much bolder design with all-rounded edges, bright colors and a very conspicuous Samsung logo. It also joins ASUS, Sony and others in adopting an edge-to-edge "chiclet" keyboard rather than smaller and typically scalloped keys.

It should also stand out in practical specifications with a relatively long 5-hour battery life on a stock battery that grows to 11 hours on an extended pack; 3G networking is an option over HSPA, while WiMAX (WiBro in Korea) provides 4G support.

Most other details are typical; though Samsung hasn't named the choice of processor other than an Intel Atom, it also has typical high-end netbook specs with 1GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, 802.11g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth all driving Windows XP. Pricing hasn't been set, but the NC310 is set for a worldwide launch that will include North America. [via Akihabara News]
