Samsung N220 ships with Broadcom Crystal HD media card in UK

Samsung N220 ships with Broadcom Crystal HD This is a strange one. Apparently, the UK version of the Samsung N220 netbook ships with a Broadcom Crystal HD media accelerator card, enabling 1080p video playback out of the box. Up until now, the only perceived difference between the N220 and N210 was that the N220 came with a two-tone coloured lid and subwoofer.

What is strange is that there is no mention of this inclusion anywhere on the Samsung site or retailer listings. Given that this is quite a marketable bullet point, it’s difficult to understand why Samsung didn’t want to sing 1080p compatibility from the rooftops, unless it is a very late addition. This only appears to be on the UK version, although we’d love to hear if any other Samsung N220’s have the Broadcom Crystal HD card elsewhere in the world. Check out some photos of the “HD Playback” sticker after the break.

    Crazy people who are productive are geniuses. Crazy people who are rich are eccentric. Crazy people who are neither productive nor rich are just plain crazy. Geniuses and crazy people are both out in the middle of a deep ocean geniuses swim, crazy people drown. Most of us are sitting safely on the shore. Take a chance and get your feet wet.

Got something to say?
