Samsung is reportedly working on a NVIDIA ION based netbook. According to DigiTimes, this system will feature Intel Atom N-series processors and a 11.6" LCD display. It's expected to be available later this month.
The new netbook will break Intel's restrictions on netbooks having a panel size of 10.2-inch or below, the sources noted.
In addition to Samsung, Lenovo also broke Intel's restrictions by launching a 12-inch Intel Atom N270-based netbook in June 2009, according to previous reports.
Intel has already canceled the two vendors' preferential pricing for Intel Atom N270 CPUs, the sources noted.
