Samsung recently joined the ever-expanding list of Atom-based netbook manufacturers with its by-the-book NC10.
However, according to reports, the South Korean manufacturer could ditch Intel's Atom processor in favour of a VIA alternative for its upcoming NC20.
The NC20 is thought to be the 12.1in successor to the NC10 and will join Dell's Inspiron Mini 12 as one of few larger-than-usual netbooks.
What's interesting is that Samsung is believed to be equipping the NC20 with VIA's low-power 1.3GHz Nano processor. Judging by the size of the system, and its 1.5kg weight, there might just be room for VIA's entire Trinity platform - that's a Nano processor, VIA chipset and S3 graphics GPU.
Further details remain sketchy, but we'd expect to see this one at next month's CES.
