Chromebook market is going to get better. I posted yesterday about a possible Chromebook, daisy withÂ Exynos 5250 Processor. Now, Techcrunch has posted pictures of a Sony Vaio Chromebook making its trip to FCC for certification. This one seems to have a tegra 2 processor inside.
Features and Specs
Name of the device is listed as “Â VCC111” which Techcrunch guesses to be Vaio Chromebook Computer with 11.1 inch screen. Sounds ok to me!Â The processor is given as T25 which could beÂ Nvidiaâ€™s Tegra 2.Â The Chromebook comes in two color variants, White and Black.
HDMI port, Memory Card Slot, and two USB ports.
Pricing? well, that’s the big question everyone asking. Chromebooks really need to come down to a $250 – $300 range for a mass market acceptance, according to many around here. I am not expecting a sharp dip in price soon but things are going in this direction. We should see more chromebooks from many manufacturers with innovative ideas and competitive pricing.
Google I/O 2012 Â is going to be a pretty happening event for Chromebooks also. There are many people who believe that these new Chromebooks will be announced during this annual Google event.
Aebl, Harmony And Wario
I posted about some tegra2 powered Chrome OS devices back in 2011Â Kaen, Aebl, Harmony And Wario. So, Google is getting a tegra 2 build ready from a long time. Can this Wario be Sony Vaio Chromebook?
Thanks everyone who alerted me about this news. I found two more device names in the Chromium OS code base. So, let me go dig that up now!!!
