Brief history lesson—Samsung began demonstrating the world’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) netbook at the 2010 Mobile World Congress. Samsung’s own in-house designed LTE modem chipset, Kalmia, enabled the development of a small form factor netbook with LTE capability. The inclusion of LTE will deliver high speed, low latency and ubiquitous connectivity to all users who require high-volume data access whenever they want and wherever they are.
The company demonstrated live video streaming via LTE network, equipment on the Samsung netbook N150. The Samsung N150 has a 10.1″ anti-reflective LED energy-efficient display, which works in conjunction with the N150’s optimized processing performance and Samsung’s proprietary-enhanced battery life solution, to deliver exceptional battery performance of up to 8.5 hours.
Using the integrated Easy Resolution Manager tool, screen resolution can easily be changed if a program or game needs to be viewed in 1024×768. Additional visual enhancements include an integrated Digital LiveCam for video-conferencing or live messaging, an internal microphone and headphone-out connection. The Samsung netbook N150 is currently available in market with HSPA 3G communications and WiFi access and will become commercially available with LTE in appropriate markets.
