In all the excitment about Chrome Notebooks, very few have focussed on the possibility of Google pushing Chrome OS to the desktop. I remember a few months ago writing about my vision of Chrome OS working on the nettop plaform. It seems that I wasn’t too far off; Google unveiled today Samsung’s ‘Chromebox’ which will work as a none portable platform for their new operating system.
You remember the rumoured Acer ZGB Chrome Notebook that we reported about a few weeks ago? Well, It’s here! Today Google Unveiled the Acer Chromebook during the Google I/O developer conference in California. This device was showcased alongside the Samsung Series 5 Chrome Notebook. Both will go on sale on June 15th. Initially you will only be able to grab one of these from Best Buy or Amazon in the USA.
Folks, here are the glorious pictures of the just announced Samsung Chrome Notebook. It will be called the Samsung Series 5 And will sell for $429 (Wifi only version) and $499 (3g) respectively. The device will begin shipping on the 15th of June and will be on sale online from Best Buy and Amazon.

Google has just announced that the Chrome Web Store has been a success thus far since it’s initial launch. Speaking just a few minutes ago, Google Product manager mentioned that since the launch of the Web Store, Google can report that users are now spending twice as much in App within the USA.
The Tuesday session of Google I/O 2011 is underway and Google is gloating in the success of Chrome (Browser). According to Sundar Pichai (Product VP) the browser has now hit over 160 million active users. This is more that double the growth since Google I/O 2011 when the browser was at 70 million active users.
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for; Google will announce their $20 per month Chrome Notebook subscription service later on today. Alongside, a number of Chrome Notebooks will either be announced or showcased. It is now more than certain that Samsung will make a showing with their much talked about ‘ZGB’ and ‘Alex’ notebooks. Google is also set to announce the final timeline of Chrome OS’ release whcih will likely see Chrome Notebooks going on sale as early as June this year.
It’s that time of the year again when thousands of developers and journalists begin preparations for Google’s most grand event on the calendar. There are only 90 days to go until the 2011 edition of Google I/O and this year it seems like it’s going to be the best yet.
Like any operating system, no matter how secure, fast and delightful; the average user will not embrace it unless it comes with some delightfully tasty goodies. The launch of Iphone OS and more-so the Ipad are a testament to this.
After many months of rumours and news leaks Google has finally officially launched their much awaited Google TV platform. Indeed this was all announced this morning at the Google I/O event in California
