Samsung N120 netbook

Samsung on Tuesday announced it will soon release the N120 netbook, which shares its body and many other components with the N110 spotted just yesterday. There are some improvements on Samsung's third 10.1-inch netbook, including a 2.1-channel SRS sound system that sports two 1.5W speakers and a dedicated subwoofer. The touchpad is also larger than in Samsung's first NC10 netbook, while the keyboard is larger, sized just like ones from a 12-inch notebook PC.

The battery life is also extended, with Samsung claiming 10.5 hours of life from the six-cell battery, outpacing the N110 by more than three hours. While hardware specs have not been announced, they are expected to involve the same 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 160GB HDD and 1GB of RAM found in the N110 and other netbooks of similar size. The operating system will be Windows XP Home Edition. Samsung did say the N120 will include a 1.3-megapixel camera, a 3-in-1 memory card reader, three USB ports and the option of Bluetooth 2.0+ with EDR. All this will be included in a package that weighs about 2.8lbs.

That large keyboard features an anti-bacterial coating that makes it difficult for bacteria to live and breed.

Though pricing has not yet been divulged, the Samsung N120 will be available in April in the US, Europe and Asia.
