Adidas, a company most recognized by its sneakers brand, has moved towards the tech sector by branding a special edition Samsung N150 netbook. Along with the Adidas logo are patterns representing the world cup, an event I’m sure Adidas is heavily participating in. In addition to the branding, the special edition netbook comes with Windows 7, Bluetooth 3.0, and a 250GB hardrive. Those are the only distinctions between the special edition and regular version of the N150 netbook.
It is uncertain whether this netbook will make an appearance in US market or how much Adidas paid for this honor. What is certain however, is that along with the netbook, Adidas also branded a similarly designed pouch and mouse.
Samsung is following the swarm of new Pine Trail-powered netbook releases with a new netbook of its own, according to recent leaks from online retailers and the FCC. The netbook is going to be called the Samsung N150, but as far as I can tell, it’s not making many changes from the old NC-series formula.
The Samsung N150 will run the Intel Atom N450 CPU on 1 GB of RAM, a 160 GB HDD, Windows 7, and a 10-inch screen. However, it also includes the Qualcomm Gobi2000 chipset, a GPS receiver, and 3G connectivity, making it a possible candidate for contracts with cellular providers.
Availability is unknown thus far, but some online retailers are taking pe-orders at $374.
