Samsung netbook says 'yes' to Optus

Hardware vendor brings European product to Australia's number two telco.

The Samsung NC10 will be available on Optus' $0 upfront on a 24 month My Wireless Netbook 2GB or 5GB plan.

It comes with an Optus Wireless Broadband SIM and pre-installed wireless broadband connectivity software. 

Optus will offer two plan options the My Wireless Netbook 2GB for $49.99 per month and the My Wireless Netbook 5GB for $69.99 per month.

The NC10 10.2 inch netbook weighs 1.33kg and incorporates a 10.2 inch WSVGA (1024 x 600) LED screen.

The netbook also features the Intel Atom processor and Microsoft Windows XP Home operating system, 160GB hard disk storage and Optus Wireless Broadband.

Emmanuele Silanesu, national product and marketing manager of Samsung Australia IT Division said this is one of the first times the vendor has partnered with a telco provider.

"By leveraging our existing relationship with Optus, together we have succeeded in delivering an all in one solution to meet Australian customers' demands out of the box," he said.

The Samsung NC10 is available at Optus dealers nationally and through Optus telesales.

Both the 2GB and 5GB My Wireless Netbook plans offer customers the Samsung NC10 netbook computer with an embedded Optus Wireless Broadband (OWB) service that works on the Optus dual band (900/2100MHz) mobile network for $0 upfront over 24 months; with a total minimum spend of $1209.71 on the My Wireless Netbook 2GB plan or $1689.71 on the My Wireless Netbook 5GB. 

This package is backed by a two year international warranty and offers a pick-up and return service anywhere in Australia.

The release of the NC10 on Optus follows very closely on the heels of the launch of two Acer Aspire One Netbooks and Aspire 4810T Timeline Notebook on Telstra broadband plans.

Vodafone and Dell have had a combined netbook with mobile broadband out on the market since November 2008.
