CR48 Chrome Notebook Starts Shipping – Here Is An Unboxing Video And Tonnes Of Images

For those lucky ( and living in US ) people, Google has started shipping the Chrome Notebook CR 48. There is a lot of fuzz in the community because this pilot program is US only at the moment. Will there be another pilot program for people outside US ? Not sure.

Twitter updates from excited CR48 guys are showing up now. Please post in comments if you find some tweets or blog posts, or if you got one, write me something about it !!!

Below is the image kessler shared on twitter. ( and a few more fro )  I have admit, CR48 is just black without branding, but still looks awesome to me !

    Wow. It looks great and I think it could be a real success among bloggers and other people that constantly use the Internet. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these.

      you will have to wait if you are not in US

    I just got one! I’m in Canada for this winter and my parents had to go back to the US for work for a week and it arrived this morning. My mom says it’s “cute”. I’ll be sure to send you updates and pictures.

    I really wish I had one now. I’m dying. I’m not in the US either and the suspense of whether or not is killing me!

    Any idea on where the jailbreaking button is? Maybe a photo of it

    • chrome story 10/12/2010, 1:03 pm

      I will try to get a photo of it. Sundar Pichai said we will see it when we remove the battery

    I was, and still, looking for that “jailbreak switch” they talked about in the google event but with no luck.

  • ckittel 10/12/2010, 8:20 am

    The “jailbreak” button is behind a piece of black tape just to the right of the power port where the battery and the laptop connect to each other.

    • aloni 10/12/2010, 8:30 am

      I can’t find a sticker with a button anywhere on the device.
      What is this jailbrake all about anyways? what’s there to jailbrake?

      anyway – if you know of a nice site with tip and tricks for it i’d ove to see it (like opening a new window and toggling between them)

        I got photos, I will post them today

        • jim 10/12/2010, 6:23 pm

          hrm, i can’t find that area either on mine

  • SFMoe 11/12/2010, 12:35 am

    I got home last night around midnight and wasn’t expecting a package at my door ( I mostly ship to the office ). Had no idea what it was but the box was fun… to my surprise it was the chrome notebook!/SFMoe/status/13112426924871681
