Samsung Revealed N100 Netbook with MeeGo OS for India
Samsung unveiled a new mini-laptop for the Indian market -- the N100 netbook.
Samsung is said to release the Samsung N100 – a low-priced netbook – that is specially designed for consumers in India. In order to bring a cheap device, the company is adding a 1.33 GHz Intel Atom N435 processor and a MeeGo Linux operating system, which will give low power features on the device.
This new netbook from Samsung has the same processor and operating system like the ASUS Eee PC X101, set to ship soon with a price of only $200. However, the only difference is that ASUS’ netbook will be available in the U.S market, while the Samsung N100 still holds no assurance if whether it will be attainable outside India or not.
The low-cost, mini laptop sports a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel matte display, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 2 USB ports, an SD card slot, a VGA output and Ethernet port, and a 3 cell, 40Whr battery. Moreover, the N100, which has a size of 10.3″ x 7.4″ x 1.4″ and weighs of 2.3Lbs, will be using GMA 3105 graphics and could run on Windows 7.
MeeGo is said to be a Linux-based open source mobile operating system project that is designed for netbooks, desktops, tablets, and other communication devices. It works under Intel and Nokia, and features the AppUp Center — an app store wherein users can download software for the platform. The MeeGo OS was used for N100 not because of its high demand, but because of its low price.
The Samsung N100 is expected to retail for 12,290 rupees or 280 US dollars.View Article Source »
