Samsung stuffs 150Mbits/sec LTE into netbook

Samsung has revealed the world's first LTE-enabled netbook at this year's Mobile World Congress.

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a potential successor to current 3G technologies and is theoretically capable of hitting download speeds of 150Mbits/sec, though it's unlikely such speeds will be seen outside of the company's lab.

In order to squeeze the technology into the netbook's small form factor, Samsung has developed its own LTE chipset, dubbed Kalmia - which the company is heralding as the first of its kind.

While the introduction of LTE to consumer devices is promising, it may be a long time before it's a standard. Samsung claims the N150 "will become commercially available with LTE according to service schedule and market demand."

When that will actually happen depends entirely on when mobile operators decide to roll out the technology, but in an interview with PC Pro John Cunliffe, Ericsson's chief technology officer claims it could be 2012 before LTE begins to arrive in the UK market.

In the meantime, Samsung will be offering the N510 with 3G and Wi-Fi connections, a 1.66GHz Atom processor, 250GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. The company is claiming 8.5 hours of battery life.
