Samsung NC10 Special Edition now shipping in US

March 7, 2009 at 9:28 am

The ‘Special Edition’ of Samsung’s NC10 netbook is now shipping exclusively from Amazon. The difference over the standard version is that the SE (NC10-11PBK) comes in black and has a larger capacity six-cell battery (5900 mAh vs 5200 mAh) and bigger trackpad. As can be seen from the picture below, the trackpad is only marginally bigger than the original NC10. Amazon has reduced the price by $30, selling it for $469 delivered, however it looks like the first batch has already sold out and you’re in for a two-five week wait for the second batch to appear. Availability outside of the US is unknown right now, although there is a rumour that a major UK high street retailer is due to get them in soon. More information as we get it.

    After speaking with Samsung UK, they said that there were no plans to introduce this in the UK. They said it was for the USA market only.

    So its very interesting to read the UK bit in this article.

    We have not heard anything concrete regarding a UK release, however we’re keeping our ears close to the ground.

    As soon as we hear any further news we’ll be sure to let you know 🙂

    I have also had a reply from Samsung to confirm that they will not be releasing the special edition to the UK market.

    Thanks Dave. We’ll be in touch with our Samsung UK contact this week to find out for sure. We’ll let you know the outcome.

    I look forward to hearing what you find out. A friend of mine spoke to someone in store (and I guess you must know where I mean) who seemed to think it was on the way.

    But when I contacted “official” sources they also denied it would happen. So who knows!
