We’ve posted a number of impressions of the 10-inch Samsung N310 from European sites, however this time round Laptop Mag managed to get hands-on with the Samsung N310 netbook at the CTIA convention in Las Vegas. We already know that whilst the specifications are pretty similar to the Samsung NC10, it is the design that sets it apart. It has a ‘pebble’ design with the Samsung logo embossed onto the lid. It will also have a 92 percent size standard keyboard and will come with a 4-cell battery.
Whilst I’m not too fond of the large logo, they found it to be a nice touch. The overall feel was quite solid and durable. They were also impressed with the ‘chiclet’ keyboard which felt even roomier than the Asus Eee PC 1000HE. Check out our previous post for the full specifications of the N310.
CTIA is the world’s largest event dedicated to wireless gadgets. Interestingly, Samsung had the CTIA showfloor all to itself. Some of the biggest netbook manufacturers like Dell, Lenovo, MSI, Acer, Asus and Hewlett-Packard were all absent from the show. That left Samsung all alone to showcase its wares. A sign of the recessionary times we live in.
