Samsung has unveiled yet another 10-inch netbook this morning, following the unveiling of the NC310. This time, Samsung is looking to build upon the success of its best-selling NC10, by announcing its third 10-inch netbook called the Samsung N110. The N110 has improved on its predecessor in a number of areas including an expanded touchpad and a higher capacity 6-cell 5900 mAh battery (versus 5200 mAh in the NC10) that should give over seven hours of battery life. The design is also slightly different with a glossy lid with red border. Read more

Samsung unveils new NC310 netbook

March 23, 2009 at 9:09 am

Samsung will shortly be launching a new netbook, dubbed NC310, for release on the global market according to Akihabara News. Whilst information is limited right now, what we do now is that this 10.1-inch netbook will have a battery life of 5 hours (no idea on battery capacity) rising to 11 hours with the extended battery.

There is also no information on what CPU powers the NC310, however we do know it will come with 1GB RAM and a 160GB hard-disk drive. Other features that come with the NC310 include WiFi (b/g only), 3G, Bluetooth and a 1.3MP webcam. The unit weighs 1.23kg, dimensions are unknown.

My personal opinion is that the NC310 range looks a bit cheap compared to the NC10/NC20. The range comes in a number of bright colours with what seems to be a large ‘SAMSUNG’ embossed on the lid cover. It makes it look a bit tacky in our view, although pricing will determine who this is targeted to. No release date has been announced thus far. We have included a gallery of pictures after the jump.
