Google certainly has its sights set on the notebook market. It has targeted the high-end niche with its latest notebook, the Chromebook Pixel. The company will also be releasing cheap, Intel Atom and Android OS powered notebooks that are expected to carry price tags as low as $200. In Google’s bid to dominate the notebook market, its partners are also playing a major role. According to supply chain sources, Asus and Acer both are planning new Chromebooks that will be released later this year.
Details about Asus Chromebook are vague right now, it is expected to make its debut in either the third or fourth quarter of 2013. As far as Acer’s Chromebook is concerned, it is said to have a 11.6 inch screen and expected to go on sale in July. No further details about these Chromebooks are available as yet, but they are supposedly going to be mid-range devices with price tags substantially less than the Chromebook Pixel. Even Lenovo and HP are rumored to be pondering over the idea of entering the Chromebook market, with so much support from its partners, Google can really focus on making the software side of things amazing so as to establish a respectable footing in the notebook market.
