Google just tweeted that they will finally sell their Chromebooks – as part of a pre-order package, of course. It has been a long ride to this day from when Google first announced the commencement of their Chromebooks a couple of years ago, and Google tweeted, “Nothing but the web: Samsung & Acer #Chromebooks now available for pre-order from @Amazon and @BestBuy in the US, http://t.co/LpY0jWU, Pre-order from Best Buy or Amazon.”
Those who are interested will be able to place a pre-order for a Chromebook from either Best Buy or Amazon, where these devices will start to ship on the 15th of this month onwards. At point of publishing, those pre-orders will be limited to folks living Stateside, although we do hope that Google will fulfill the promise of introducing Chromebooks to other countries sooner rather than later.
What happens though, if Google loses the lawsuit concerning the Chromebook name – what do you think it will be called then? Are you looking forward to the Chromebook, or do you think this is one niche device that might take some time before it actually gets off the ground?
