Samsung is introducing two new 10.1 inch netbooks in Russia. From the photos, it looks like the Samsung N130 and N140 are a cross between the Samsung Go and N110. I can’t tell for sure from the pictures, and my Russian is rusty nonexistent, but it looks like base of the netbook has a rubberized finish, a la the Go. The keyboard and touchpad also look like the Go’s, but instead of an edge to edge piece of glass, the screen seems to be a more traditional display with a plastic bezel around the edges, like the one on the Samsung N110.
Both models will have Intel Atom N270 or N280 processors, 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel displays, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB hard drives. The N130 will ship with mono audio and either a 3 or 6 cell battery, while the N140 will come standard with a 6 cell battery, although it looks like two different versions are available, a 5200mAh 6 cell battery or a higher capacity 5900mAh 6 cell battery.
The netbooks weigh about 2.8 pounds and measure 10.3″ x 7.3″ x 1.2″. They’ll be available black, white, or blue. No word on pricing yet, or if and when they’ll be available outside of Russia.
Update: As per the comments, it looks like these models are also available in the UK, Germany, and Italy for between 300 and 350 Euros (or about $429 to $500 US).
Update 2: According to CNET, Samsung claims the N140’s battery will last up to 11 hours.
Update 3: Netbook News.de reports that the laptops will ship with Windows 7 Starter Edition.
Update 4: It looks like the N130 case isn’t rubberized, just a bit rounder than earlier Samsung netbooks. It still looks a bit like the Samsung Go case to me.

Samsung seems to have caught what ever Asus has….product diarrhea. And uncontrollable rush of half digested versions of what we should normally expect that in so being (i.e. half digested) are difficult to truly identify.
It’s also avaible in Italy, for 309 (N130) and 349 (N140) euro.
The N130 and N140 are also available in Europe – at least I’ve seen them offered in UK and German webshops – for 300 and 350€.
