Samsung N220 netbook, with 12 hour battery life and Optus Mobile Broadband, is the traveler’s new best friend! 

Sydney, Australia – Setting a new benchmark for mobile computing, Samsung Electronics Australia is introducing the Samsung N220 netbook, with a massive 12 hour battery life[1] and pre-installed Optus Mobile Broadband service for fast and easy internet access, on the road or on-the-go.

Exclusive to Optus customers, the Samsung N220 gives you instant internet access with a built-in 3G quad-band module and Optus SIM card inserted directly into the netbook. In conjunction with an impressive 12 hour battery life, the benefits to your work day are significant – you can work for longer on the go without having to reach for a charger or having to worry about losing a USB dongle or internet card again!

This connectivity is made possible with the Optus Mobile Broadband plan, allowing you to boot up, log on and get connected to the internet. The Samsung N220 is available on 24 month Optus My Wireless Netbook 2GB or 5GB plans. With Samsung’s new netbook, there’s no need to use a separate USB modem, freeing up the computer’s USB ports for items such as the optical disc drive and optical wireless mouse which is included in an accessories bundle on the 5GB plan, which also includes a messenger carry-bag.

“The launch of the new Samsung N220 netbook with Optus Mobile Broadband follows the success of its predecessor, the Samsung NC10. In 2009, Optus was the first operator to partner with Samsung to deliver a mobile broadband enabled netbook, which went on to be an outstanding success for both our businesses,” said Philip Newton, IT Director, Samsung Electronics Australia.

“The next generation Samsung N220 netbook will give Optus customers even more power and features on the go.”

“Our partnership with Samsung is one we’re extremely proud of and together, we’re helping Australians unlock their mobility potential” said Austin R. Bryan , Optus Consumer Marketing Director. “The Optus sim-embedded netbooks provide the ultimate convenience and performance, all on a range of plans which will ensure everyone can get their hands on the latest in Samsung netbook technology.

“We’re seeing a huge uptake in netbook from a wide range of the population – whether it’s families looking for an additional option, media hungry consumers looking for a device they can travel with, or students looking for the bang for their buck. Optus’ My Wireless Netbook plans will give consumers on different budgets the chance to get their hands on netbook technology now” said Bryan.

The Samsung N220 lets you enjoy quality audio visual experiences with high definition playback, integrated 2.1 channel speakers and an in-built subwoofer with SRS 3D sound effects. Now your ultimate mobile computer is also the ideal device for watching movies in cinematic surround sound when travelling, or listening to your favourite music while surfing the internet and unwinding at the end of a long day.

Even with these high end multimedia features, the Samsung N220 netbook delivers exceptional battery life thanks to the energy efficient LED display, optimised processing performance and Samsung’s class-leading engineering. Combined with an attractive, yet durable, design in either green or red, the Samsung N220 netbook represents the ultimate in mobile computing.

“Boasting a distinctive colour palette and design, the Samsung N220 is a feature-rich netbook with our longest battery life yet. When paired with an Optus Mobile Broadband plan, the Samsung N220 will facilitate wireless connectivity for hours on end, providing rich work and play experiences and quality viewing of multimedia content,” added Newton.

The Samsung N220 is available at Optus dealers nationally and through Optus telesales from 1st May 2010. Both 2GB ($49.95 per month min cost, 24 month $1,199.76 min cost) and 5GB ($69.95 per month minimum cost, 24 month min cost $1,679.76)) My Wireless Netbook plans offer customers the Samsung N220 netbook computer with an embedded Optus Mobile Broadband service.
