Samsung Confirms Chrome-Based Netbook

Samsung Australia has confirmed that it's currently working on a netbook using Google's Chrome OS. However according to Channel News, the device won't be incorporated into Samsung's 2010 lineup until later this year.

Phil Newton, head of Samsung IT Australia, told Channel News that the device will feature a 12-hour battery life, built-in WiFi and 3G connectivity, a default 2 GB of RAM, and at least 64 GB of HDD space. Newton also added that the Chrome-based netbook will be similar to Samsung's Pine Trail N210, which features a 10.1-inch LED screen.

Channel News was unable to confirm the processor and chipset, but speculates that the device will use Qualcomm's 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor.
