Google Makes the Chromebook Pixel Official; Will Retail for $1300

Feb 21, 2013 - 1:44 PM - by dgstorm


Earlier today the Wall Street Journal posted a story that seemed to confirm the Chromebook Pixel is in fact a real device. Google took that one step further and officially confirmed it! The device looks very impressive, but also comes with a mammoth pricetag of $1300. Here's the press statement and link to the Chromebook blog,

Chromebooks were designed to make computing speedy, simple and secure. For many of you, they have become the perfect, additional (and yes, affordable) computer: ideal for catching up on emails, sharing documents and chatting via Hangouts. We’re tremendously grateful to our partners—Samsung, Acer, Lenovo and HP—for their commitment. The momentum has been remarkable: the Samsung Chromebook has been #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for laptops every day since it launched 125 days ago in the U.S., and Chromebooks now represent more than 10 percent of notebook sales at Currys PC World, the largest electronics retailer in the U.K.

So what’s next? Today we’re excited to announce our newest laptop—the Chromebook Pixel—which brings together the best in hardware, software and design to inspire the next generation of Chromebooks. With the Pixel, we set out to rethink all elements of a computer in order to design the best laptop possible, especially for power users who have fully embraced the cloud. The philosophy of Chrome has always been to minimize the “chrome” of the browser. In much the same way, the goal of the Pixel is to make the pixels disappear, giving people the best web experience.


Let’s start with the screen. This Chromebook has the highest pixel density (239 pixels per inch) of any laptop screen on the market today. Packed with 4.3 million pixels, the display offers sharp text, vivid colors and extra-wide viewing angles. With a screen this rich and engaging, you want to reach out and touch it—so we added touch for a more immersive experience. Touch makes it simple and intuitive to do things like organize tabs, swipe through apps and edit photos with the tip of your finger.

The Pixel has been engineered with the highest quality components to ensure it’s comfortable to use all day long and meets the needs of demanding power users. The body of the Pixel is made from an anodized aluminum alloy to create a smooth and durable surface; vents are hidden, screws are invisible and the stereo speakers are seamlessly tucked away beneath the backlit keyboard. The touchpad is made from etched glass, analyzed and honed using a laser microscope to ensure precise navigation.

[Rumor] Leaked Video Shows New 'Chromebook Pixel' Touch-screen 2560 x 1700 Device

Feb 06, 2013 - 2:10 PM - by dgstorm


A new leaked video may show the future direction that Google will be taking mobile "PC" devices, and it looks a lot like an integration between the Android and Chromebook concepts. It's called the Chromebook Pixel, and it supposedly has a 2560 x 1700 resolution touch-screen display. Interestingly, the video was not made by Google directly, but was instead from an advertising firm. They claim their servers were hacked which resulted in the leaked video. Here's a quote with the details,

Soon after the video hit Google Plus, the clip was taken down, but we were able to snatch a copy. The video description suggested that the clip was made by a company called Slinky.me, whose CEO Victor Koch than took to Google Plus to announce that its servers were attacked by hackers. Attackers than allegedly made several videos of projects that Slinky.me was working on available on YouTube.

The tag line of the video is “Designed by Google. Down to the last pixel.” Could this mean that Google is working on a Chromebook that is completely developed in-house? After the ill-fated Nexus Q that’s certainly possible. Alternatively, we could be talking about the Chromebook equivalent of the Nexus program. In that case, Google could be working with an OEM to create a Pixel-branded computer.

This leak corroborates with an earlier report that claimed a touchscreen Chromebook made by Google is in the works.
It's interesting to see how Google envisions their various technologies merging across their ecosystem. What other directions can you imagine this technology convergence might go?

BTW... we couldn't host the video, because of its specific format, but hit up the AndroidAuthority source link below to check it out.

Google's New Chromebook Sells Out Fast

Oct 23, 2012 - 11:00 AM - by dgstorm


Google’s (GOOG) new 11.6-inch Chromebook built by Samsung (005930) might finally be the notebook that helps it get Chrome OS off the ground. Initial stock of the $249 notebook sold out shortly after it was made available for purchase on the Google Play Store. The Chromebook has been generating buzz not only for its low price, but because Google chose an ARM processor – a CPU normally used for smartphones and tablets – to power it.

Google and Samsung claim the Chromebook can surf the Web via Wi-Fi and play 1080p HD videos for up to 6.5 hours on a single charge. A 3G model of the new Chromebook will also be available for $329.99 soon. Google didn’t reveal how many units it sold, but early indications suggest there is room for a $249 notebook that mainly runs a Web browser in a tablet and smartphone-dominated mobile world.
