AT&T today announced the availability of the Samsung Go Netbook starting on November 22nd. The Samsung Go is a 10-inch compact and lightweight netbook that comes with instant access to broadband speeds powered by the nation’s fastest 3G network and gets the new Windows 7 Starter Edition, different from what was first announced. Other than the OS change, the specs are pretty much the same. There is a 160GB Hard Drive, 10-inch LED Backlit display with a 1024×600 pixel resolution, it is still powered by an Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a standard 4-cell 4000Ah battery which offers up to 4 hours on a single battery charge.
AT&T offers two AT&T DataConnect plans for netbooks, including a 200MB plan option for a newly reduced price of $35 per month or a 5GB plan for $60 per month. AT&T DataConnect plans offer consumer and small business subscribers access to the nation’s fastest 3G network, along with free use of AT&T Wi-Fi service, featuring more than 20,000 hot spots nationwide. Other basic specs includes a 3-in-1 memory card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, WiFi 802.11 b/g, a 1.3 megapixel Webcam, external VGA port plus connectivity for HSPA (7.2/5.1 Mbps): 850/1900/2100 MHz and GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz networks, although the dive is SIM locked to AT&T.
The Samsung Go Netbook will be available for $199 after a mail-in rebate and with the purchase of a 2-year AT&T DataConnect service agreement, with pricing starting at $35 per month.
