When I said “much awaited”, I meant Google, and not Chromebook fans. Reviews so far talk positively about the Chromebook. However we are yet to see any sales numbers.
Google however has very high expectations from this Samsung partnership. This reminds me of the first ARM Chromebook that Google released in partnership with Samsung. The $249 Chromebook was heavily marketed by Google. Samsung Chromebook Plus and Pro also seem to be moving in the same direction. Last time the partnership try to sell the idea of a “Chromebook for everyone”. This time, they are selling us the Chromebooks + Android apps combination.
Now that the sales have kicked off, it is not long before we know about the general response to this device. If you pick up one, do drop me a comment!
