Samsung's new Netbook spotted

This new Netbook is expected sometime in October in Korea, the U.K., and other markets.

We previously noted that , "Samsung has made laptops for pretty much every market except the U.S., and generally, we've been pretty fine with that arrangement," but that doesn't mean we can't get behind a potentially cool new Netbook, as seen on whatlaptop.co.uk and pocketables.net.

The specs on this still-unnamed system are fairly standard Netbook fare: a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 10-inch screen, 1GB of RAM, Windows XP, and a choice of 80GB/120GB/160GB hard drives (no SSD options as far as we can tell).

It's also got two things we specifically look for in a Netbook: a 6-cell battery (adds some bulk, but also 5-plus hours of battery life), and integrated Bluetooth (important for tethering a smartphone for mobile broadband access on the cheap).

This new Netbook is expected sometime in October in Korea, the U.K., and other markets, for around $550. With some unexpected recent buzz around Samsung laptops, maybe we're inching closer to getting a few of these in the U.S.
