I still remember reporting about the first Chromebook, the CR48. How things have changed.
Lenovo is planning to bring multiple Chromebook models to the market before summer, 2014, reports CNET. Excerpts:
Jay Parker, president for Lenovo’s North American operations, said the company will release “multiple Chromebook models” in the market by the summer. That will cover multiple price points and configurations, he said.
“I think Chromebooks can be very impactful in the market really quickly,” Parker said during a meeting at the Consumer Electronics Show here. “We believe the market will accelerate greatly in the next 12 months.”
We don’t have a specific timeline,” he said. “But we’re interested in it being sooner rather than later.”
“It’s a fascinating category that eventually will be very important in the technology industry,” Parker said. “Right now with the technology available, I’m not sure that the market is ready for it in a mass scale…We’ll take a wait-and-see approach but develop our own plans.”
