If 8 hours battery (which Samsung claimed to integrate inside the N110) isn’t enough, checkout the new NC310 netbook, that was recently surfaced across the Asian part of the world, offering a basic version with usual specs like 10.1-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 160GB HDD, 802.11b/g WiFi, 1.3MP camera and 5 hours battery, but also some interesting features inside the enhance model, which boasts HSDPA data, WiBRO connection (Korean WiMAX), and the jewel in the crown – 11 hours battery, that can easily beat every single netbook in the pond, if true. Although we’re lack of processor details (hopefully a new one) and any pricing numbers, you might be pleased with the NC310’s colorful casing, which definately looks different in those shiny Black, Orange, Purple or Turquoise flavors, all engraved with huge SAMSUNG letters on top.
Update1: While we have no details about a US release, turns out the NC310 will make a debut in the UK somewhere around May, priced at £399 ($577). According to various sources, the first shipment will only include the basic package in black exterior, while other colors will be launched later on. Until then, checkout the complete specs after the break.
Update2: Checkout the hands-on video from Blogeee.net, after the break.
Update3: Looks like Samsung’s N310 is now available to order in the US, as Best Buy has just launched the netbook in its website, priced at $479.99 and expected to be delivered within a week or two.
Update4: The N310 has finally landed Stateside and will be priced at $449, although it seems US version is lacking the anti-bacterial keyboard element, which made Samsung so popular within the netbooks pond.
