Samsung announces another 10-inch netbook, the N120

March 24, 2009 at 1:31 pm

Following yesterday’s launch of two 10-inch netbooks, the successor to the NC10 called the N110 and the colourful N310, Samsung has announced yet another model. To fill in the model numbering gap, Samsung has announced the 10.1-inch N120 netbook, which offers a full 12-inch size keyboard. Samsung claims that the keyboard will have optimised key spacing, which should place less strain on your wrists, fewer errors and faster typing speeds.

The N120 will also have a larger touchpad and an ultra-lightweight and robust slim line casing. Samsung claims that the N120 will have up to 10.5 hours of battery life with its 6-cell battery, which is more than the 9.3 hours quoted for the N110. The N120 is only marginally heavier than the N110 at 1.28kg (1.26kg for the N110). No idea on what will power the N120 although we know it will be an Intel Atom CPU of some kind.

Good news for music buffs, The N120 will feature an integrated SRS 2.1 sound system featuring 2 x 1.5 Watt stereo speakers with a dedicated sub-woofer. Other features include a 1.3MP webcam, 3-in-1 memory card reader, three built-in USB ports and optional Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

Samsung expects that the N120 netbook will be available from April in Europe, Asia and the US. No pictures or pricing information has been released so far. As soon as we hear more we’ll keep you updated.

Update: Pictures of the N120 are now available. A gallery has been posted here.

    I think it must be a typo on their part, the official press releases refer to the models as N110, N120 and N310.

    Will be very interested to see the full specs of the N120 and especially the pricing in the UK. Was going to get the NC10 but certainly holding off now. Not the slightest bit interested in the N310.

    So its going to be between the N110 and N120 (but price will be a major factor).

    I hear you Gazza, these 2 models are sleek. I’m opting for the N110 as I don’t see the need to pay extra for a little bit more battery power. The N210 may sport the 280 ATOM but that is not that amaizing.

    Hopefully it will be on sale when I go to HK in a few weeks!
