We were calling it the Google Chrome OS notebook. In fact, I received a Google Chrome OS notebook in Google’s pilot program.
At the core of this notebook is the Chrome OS browser. It is a totally different idea of a notebook.
These are not typical notebooks. With a Chromebook you won’t wait minutes for your computer to boot and browser to start. You’ll be reading your email in seconds. Thanks to automatic updates the software on your Chromebook will get faster over time. Your apps, games, photos, music, movies and documents will be accessible wherever you are and you won’t need to worry about losing your computer or forgetting to back up files. Chromebooks will last a day of use on a single charge, so you don’t need to carry a power cord everywhere. And with optional 3G, just like your phone, you’ll have the web when you need it.
Chromebooks have many layers of security built in so there is no anti-virus software to buy and maintain. Even more importantly, you won’t spend hours fighting your computer to set it up and keep it up to date.
At the core of each Chromebook is the Chrome web browser. The web has millions of applications and billions of users. Trying a new application or sharing it with friends is as easy as clicking a link.
Google has just announced the availability of Chromebooks on June 15 in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Spain.
It is going to be very interesting to see the reception this receives amongst the slew of announcements at Google I/O.
