Rumours surfaced a while back over a touchscreen enabled version of the rugged Samsung NB30 netbook. Well it looks like this model has seen its official launch in Italy. The Samsung NB30 Touch (NB30-JT01IT) is the same in all other respects compared to the original NB30 and costs €399.
The NB30 Touch only comes with Windows 7 Starter, so you won’t benefit from the full touch experience you get with W7HP. The type of touchscreen (resistive/capacitive) is also not mentioned, although I expect it’s the former. Other features remain including its rubberised chassis, hard-disk protection and an anti-spill keyboard. Click through for the specs.
