February 15, 2010 at 7:54 am

Samsung N150Samsung has demoed the first Long Term Evolution (LTE) netbook at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona. LTE is the next-generation mobile network that promises to deliver higher speeds and lower latency to users. It has used its Samsung N150 netbook to demonstrate LTE capabilities with the embedded Kalmia chipset.

The specs of the Samsung N150 remain the same apart from the inclusion of the LTE-enabling Kalmia chipset. Samsung says that rollout of LTE enabled netbooks will depend on demand. The initial deployment of LTE began in 2009, but trials have continued into 2010.

Samsung N150 netbook in video unboxing

February 10, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Samsung N150The Samsung N150 netbook is pretty much one of the standard Pine Trail netbooks. It comes with a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter. The N150 netbook was reviewed recently and whilst the quoted 8.5-hour battery life was lauded, the keyboard didn’t live up to its predecessors.

Roland from NetbookNews has unboxed one of these netbooks. Whilst the glossy lid is a fingerprint magnet, it’s nice to see it sport a matte display and palm rest. It comes with a 4400mAh battery and a flat-key keyboard. The touchpad looks a similar size to previous Samsung netbooks along with a single mouse rocker bar underneath. You can check out the unboxing after the jump. Read more

Samsung N150 reviewed – battery life good, keyboard bad

February 8, 2010 at 10:09 am

Samsung N150Samsung has released four new Intel Pine Trail netbooks and amongst them is the 10.1-inch Samsung N150, powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, boasting an 8.5-hour battery life. Cnet recently reviewed the Samsung N150 netbook and whilst they lauded its battery life, the keyboard fell short, a disappointment considering Samsung’s pedigree in this area.

The chassis comes with a glossy black lid (I really wish Samsung would go back to its matte lid on the Samsung N120) that is a bit of a fingerprint magnet. Samsung’s netbook keyboards have stood out in the past, however Cnet found the one in the N150 disappointing. This was due to close proximity of keys that caused errors aplenty. However, the touchpad made up for this with accurate tracking and mutt-touch gestures out of the box. Read more
