Samsung offers NC10 netbook with Optus wireless broadband

Samsung inks exclusive deal with Optus for local netbook launch

Samsung has announced an exclusive deal with Optus for the local launch of its new NC10 netbook.

Available for $0 upfront on a 24-month Optus My Wireless Netbook 2GB or 5GB plan, the Samsung NC10 netbook will include an Optus Wireless Broadband SIM. The NC10 netbook also features a 10.2in WSVGA (1024 x 600) LED-backlit screen, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor and a 160GB hard drive. The netbook runs Windows XP Home.

Emmanuele Silanesu, the national product and marketing manager of Samsung Australia's IT division, says that this pairing of Samsung and Optus will allow Australian customers to benefit from one of the most practical and efficient models in the 10in netbook market.

“By leveraging our existing relationship with Optus, together we have succeeded in delivering an all in one solution to meet Australian customers’ demands out of the box,” he said in a media release.

Optus will offer two plan options: the My Wireless Netbook 2GB plan for $49.99 per month and the My Wireless Netbook 5GB for $69.99 per month.

Both plans offer customers the Samsung NC10 netbook computer with an embedded Optus Wireless Broadband (OWB) service that works on the telco's dual band (900/2100MHz) mobile network for $0 upfront over 24 months. There is a total minimum spend of $1209.71 on the My Wireless Netbook 2GB plan or $1689.71 on the My Wireless Netbook 5GB plan.

Optus' Anthony Hearne said the telco had partnered with Samsung because "we wanted to ensure our customers benefited from a powerful netbook while accessing Optus’ high speed wireless broadband network.”

This Samsung netbook package includes a two-year international warranty, with a pick-up and return service anywhere in Australia.
