Samsung Go now from AT&T
AT&T and Samsung Electronics have joined forces to bring the new Samsung Go to the masses, where this compact and lightweight netbook will boast instant access to broadband speeds powered by US’ fastest 3G network (or so they claim – as long as you don’t live or work in some place that is out of reach of their 3G signals, of course), where it will also be powered by the latest Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition operating system to get you started right out of the box. With more and more netbooks tying up with mobile carriers, we hope to see a decent price war go on so that us consumers will be able to benefit from all that in a win-win situation. More on the Samsung Go right after the jump.
The Samsung Go is highly portable, tipping the scales at a mere 2.8 lbs. which is definitely great if you don’t want to break a shoulder whenever you go around at a conference or exhibition, where there are thousands of square feet to cover. This portable powerhouse can be easily stashed away in a briefcase or travel bag. Those who love a slew of colors might be a wee bit disappointed as the Go will only be available in midnight blue color and slim, soft texture design with rounded edges, helping you make a fashion statement each time you pull it out from your bag. It also has a pebble-style keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience, thanks to larger than average spacing. As for the brilliant LED-backlit, borderless glass display, you’ll be pleased to note that it is scratch resistant and offers users with photo-like image quality, superior viewing angles and better text legibility, helping reducing eye strain and boosting productivity simultaneously when in use.
You can choose from two AT&T DataConnect plans for netbooks, where one of them is a 200MB plan option for a newly reduced price of $35 monthly, while the other is a much more comprehensive 5GB plan for $60 monthly.
