Cute and compact! That’s what you all said when Samsung announced its GO N310 netbook a few months ago. You are in for more joyous moments, with the Korean major now announcing that the new version of the netbook would be powered by AT&T’s famed network.

To come loaded with the Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition operating system, the Atom-based lightweight netbook will be unveiled under the Samsung GO name. Significant is the fact that the redone version has also dropped the N310 tag that came along with the earlier netbook.

However, from what we infer, the Samsung GO would basically be the Samsung GO N310. This means the GO will also come with Intel’s 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive. We don’t see any alteration in the 10.1-inch display and rubberized shell too. A standard 4-cell 4000Ah battery would ensure that Samsung GO stays live for at least four continuous hours on a single battery charge.

The big addition would be that the Samsung GO would get going on AT&T’s fast network and that makes the new device worth a pick. It is most likely that AT&T will see the Samsung GO as an opportunity in the netbook connectivity market. Though Samsung has not yet given away any detail on pricing, the grapevine says a two-year $60-per-month contract could be thought of. The date of launch has been finalized, we hear. Look for the Samsung GO at AT&T stores and its online mart, starting November 22.
