It must be the year of the solar laptop. Or something...
Earlier this month, we relayed a few images of a solar-powered laptop concept by Italian designer Andrea Ponti.
Not to be outdone, Samsung yesterday confirmed that it will soon offer a solar-powered netbook in the U.S., parts of Africa and Russia.
Equipped with solar cells in its cover, the Samsung NC215S will gain an hour of battery life for every two hours spent charging in the sun. Under perfect conditions, Samsung says the netbook's battery will last for 14 hours.
