Samsung announces third new netbook

The N120 with larger keyboard

We're not quite sure what Samsung is up to, but the company has announced a third new netbook model in as many days with the introduction of the N120, which will have a larger keyboard than the previously announced models.

The larger keyboard, the size of that found in 12.1-inch notebooks, also means a larger chassis, but sadly, Samsung has stuck with a 10.2-inch display which means you get a rather large bezel around the display. Samsung has utilized this space by adding a speaker on each side of the display, much like they old 7-in Eee PC. Samsung has also managed to squeeze in a subwoofer in the bottom of the N120.

Samsung hasn't revealed all the internal workings as yet, only that the N120 will use an Atom processor. Other specifications include a 1.3 Megapixel webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, a 3-in-1 memory card reader and optional Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR. There's no mention of WiFi or 3G connectivity, although we're fairly certain it'll feature WiFi. At 1.28kg the N120 isn't that much heavier than Samsungs other offerings considering its larger size.

The N120 will come with a 6-cell battery that Samsung claims is good for a whopping 10.5h of usage. It should hit retail next month, but no pricing has been revealed so far.
