Samsung and Yota Introduce Russia’s First 4G-mini notebook
|01 апреля 2009|
Samsung Electronics and Yota, a Russian mobile service provider announced the release of a modified Samsung NC10 netbook with a built-in Mobile WiMAX module and software to connect to the fourth-generation network operated by Yota. Samsung claims the NC10 is the first notebook in Russia supporting Mobile WiMAX technology.
Samsung NC10 adheres to a class of netbooks – light, compact and inexpensive computers that simplify the usage of the Internet. Weighting just 1.33kg, the NC10 is capable of operating up to 9 hours 40 minutes on battery power. An integrated 1.3 megapixel digital motion camera allows NC10 users to hold video conferences backed by a high-speed (up to 10 Mb/s) mobile broadband network. Samsung NC10 4G netbook features a 10.2″ widescreen display (WSVGA 1024×600 SuperBright) and a normal-size, notebook PC style ergonomic keyboard. NC10 has a durable scratch-resistant case built using Samsung’s Duracase technology. The keyboard of NC10 is also coated with nano-sized silver ion powder, which prevents collection, breeding and spreading of bacteria.
NC10 incorporates the Intel Atom processor, which keeps it an ultra-compact size and small weight. The pre-installed Microsoft Windows XP Home operating system and 160 GB hard drive make NC10 a powerful instrument, while the built-in Mobile WiMAX module allows unlocking the full potential of the device. In addition to WiMAX support, Samsung NC10 4G netbook comes with a vast set of networking capabilities – both wireless and wired. The device carries a number of modern networking technologies, such as Atheros 802.11b/g, 10/100 Ethernet LAN and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. NC10 packed with a 3-in-1 multimedia card slot, VGA output, microphone-in, headphone-out and three USB ports.
“This modification of our netbook is a historically first notebook of such class in Russia with a built-in Mobile WiMAX module,” said a Samsung Electronics representative.
Samsung NC10 provides an exceptional wireless Internet access speed within the Yota network coverage area. This allows fast downloading of a “heavy” multimedia content, playing music and watching video clips online with a quality and comfort of a dedicated fixed line. The Mobile WiMAX technology allows keeping continuous Internet connection even while moving by a car.
Samsung NC10 4G netbook updates the product line of Mobile WiMAX-enabled devices supported by Yota. Other products include USB modem and Express card, as well as world’s first GSM+Mobile WiMAX handset HTC MAX 4G. The sales of Samsung NC10 4G netbook started on March 23 at a recommended retail price of 19,990 RUB. Until April 6, NC10 will be available only at Russia’s M.Video retail store chain.
