Samsung NC20 US launch delayed to early April

March 18, 2009 at 5:33 pm

The Samsung NC20, the 12-inch brother to the ever-popular NC10 netbook, has seen its launch delayed in the US by a few weeks. The unit was meant to launch exclusively through on March 16. However, here we are on March 18 and a quick search on its site yields no results (not even a placeholder page). According to Laptop Mag, the NC20 launch has been delayed by a few weeks for reasons unknown and now expects to be out in the first week of April.

NewEgg will be exclusively selling the US version in black only for $549. It will come with a 5900 mAh capacity battery compared to overseas models which have a 5200 mAh rated battery. The Samsung NC20 is the first netbook to support the 1.6GHz VIA Nano CPU and comes with 1GB RAM.

    Good to see it coming over but I am suprised it won’t be more widely distributed. Price could be a little too much too but we’ll see 🙂

    I think £300 is about right for a netbook if not cheaper. If you get to around £400, then you might as well get a 15.4″ or 15.6″ laptop.
