Google announces the new Samsung Chromebook

Google has announced the availability of its new and affordable Chromebook built by Samsung, with the “made for cloud” device is now available for pre-order.

In a statement released by the search engine giant, Sundar Pichai, SVP, Chrome & Apps at Google stressed the essence of what the Chromebook is all about.

Sundar said: “A few years ago, we set out on a journey to build a better computer that’s faster, simpler and more secure. When we introduced a few Chromebooks into the market, many of you early adopters joined us on this journey. For folks living entirely in the cloud, the Chromebook is now a primary computer.”

“Many people use the Chromebook today as the perfect additional computer for their home. For families, it’s easy to use and share: for kids doing homework on the couch, parents catching up on emails at the kitchen counter and grandparents staying connected on video chat. There’s no need to worry about security updates and maintenance is easy; all you need to do is charge the battery. It just works,” he said.

The new Chromebook developed by Google together with Samsung will retail for approximately US$249 and is being punted as “the computer for everyone”.

It is reported that from yesterday the new Samsung Chromebook is available for pre-order online from Amazon, Best Buy, PC World and other retailers.

By next week it is hoped that it will be available for sale from these same online retailers as well as the Google Play store.

We are still awaiting official communication from both Google and Samsung on the Chromebook’s availability in Africa.
