Verizon Grabs the Samsung N150 Netbook with Dual-Mode 3G
Verizon today added their first Samsung model to their mix of 3G netbooks. Its version is the Samsung N150 that expands to the original model by giving it a 3G modem that will work both on Verizon’s EVDO network as well as the tri-band HSPA networks which includes AT&T’s in the US, Canadian networks and at least some of Europe as well.
The carrier preloads it with a SIM for those who prefer to use a local carrier for data when traveling around. The PC otherwise is a match of the original version with a 10-inch display and a 1.66 GHz Atom N450 with Intel Graphics and a 160GB hard drive to compliment it all. Further, it can still get on to local networks with 802.11n WiFi and the stock six-cell batter of which is predicted to be good enough for about seven to eight hours of use depending on the usage before a recharge can be done with the said netbook.
Further, subsidies drop the price of the netbook well below its usual figure, as Verizon is asking $50 for the N150 when its attached to a two-year data plan and a $100 mail-in rebate; the system should then ready well in stock today.
