Samsung Netbooks/Mini-Notebooks and Windows 7

Windows 7 Over the past few days, Samsung has been hosting their European Forum in Vienna. TechRadar UK got a chance to speak with Kyu Uhm, head of Samsung’s Worldwide Sales and Marketing (Computing Division).

Uhm had quite a bit to say about Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 7, as well as netbooks in general. As far as what version of Windows 7 would be shipped with future Samsung ultraportable products, it comes down to “…how much we need to pay to Microsoft. It is an open issue. So we can ship other Windows 7 versions, but it is a matter of royalties.

Uhm considers the Samsung NC10 to be “key drivers for Samsung’s growth in the short term period,“, which echoes what analysts have been saying.
