Update on US release

So it was supposed to be released this week, but where was it?  What’s the hold up?
Well previous news suggested a particular US retailer had an exclusive sales deal with Samsung to sell the first round of U.S NC20’s, however there has been no news from the retailer or Samsung.

You would have thought that the retailer would have tonnes of information and promotion on their website, but in the lead up this week’s release… Nothing.  If we we’re the exclusive US retailer for this awesome  12” netbook we would be wading the streets with our URL painted on our faces carrying signs reading “We’ve got the NC20 !”.
Some web sources are saying “early April” but till we hear it from a reliable source it remains strictly a rumour.
For those of you that simply cannot wait and need to get hold a decent netbook, there is always the machines ultra portable 10” brother the NC10 which is available in  Blue, Black, and White.

If you're looking to buy the Samsung NC20, you may want to look at our Recommended Samsung NC20 Suppliers Page.

    This is so annoying! I emailed newegg.com and they had no information about this product, I want to wait for it but it would be great to really get a release date, wtf if the point of not following through with the supposed exclusive us, newegg.com only availabillity when it never happened!

    Yes I’m starting to think it was a hoax from the company to get people into their site. For reliability, honesty and customer service, go with Amazon.

    I too emailed newegg & they acted like I had 6 heads. Then I emailed Samsung direct & they told me newegg was the one to get it & it would be the end of March. Neweegg should get their head out of their a%#.

    Laptop Mag noted today that the NC20 is now listed on newegg.com:http://blog.laptopmag.com/samsung-nc20-now-on-sale-on-neweggcom

    $549.99 and I can only assume they are shipping.

    So… if you do a search for “VIA Nano” at Newegg.com, this is what you get: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=via+nano&x=0&y=0

    It lists the Samsung NC20 as the first item, for $549! (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834131031) However, when you click on the link, it reports it as a “deactivated item.”

    :-(
