Samsung launches the NC110-Pororo netbook for kids
Samsung has reportedly introduced a new mini-notebook dubbed NC110-Pororo that is specifically designed for children. If your kid happens to like the cartoon character Pororo (I understand that the Little Penguin called Pororo is quite popular in South Korea), then you might want to check out the NC110.
The netbook will supposedly ship with a second generation Dual-Core Intel Atom central processing unit and a LCD LED-backlit widescreen display that measures 10.1-inch in diagonal and has a maximum supported resolution of 1024-by-600 pixels. Furthermore, the NC110 will house 1GB of internal DDR3 memory and a mechanical hard drive of unspecified capacity (storage should reportedly be at least 250GB because of the 114 pre-loaded Pororo episodes).
Samsung’s latest mini-laptop for children is equipped with Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0+HS adapters accompanied by three USB ports, an HDMI interface, a chiclet style keyboard, stereo speakers and a built-in 0.3MP web camera for video calls. In addition, the device comes with a pre-installed copy of the Windows 7 operating system and has a weight of 1.16kg (that includes the integrated 6-cell battery).
According to the maker, the NC110 will keep your kids entertained thanks to the “Pororo puzzle” and ”Pororo painted play” games that are reportedly pre-loaded onto the netbook. Moreover, the Little Penguin and the rest of the series’ characters appear on the display lid.
This mini-notebook will supposedly start shipping on February 6th and will have a starting price of 509,000 Won (or approximately $455).
