Google Chromebooks in the News

| 794

Google Chromebooks seem to be all over the news lately. At Ericom we have a particular interest in Chromebooks, and have been working with Google to deliver remote access solutions for that platform. A number of organizations and educational institutions are now using Ericom AccessNow, our HTML5 client, to gain remote access to Windows desktops and applications from Chromebooks. Examples of successful Chromebooks + Ericom AccessNow deployments include: Quality Distribution, Inc., a major transportation and services company, Richland School District Two and others.

Here’s a collection of what I consider to be the most important and interesting Chromebook related news items from recent weeks:

  1. According to Google, “there are now 2,000 schools using Chromebooks for Education – twice as many as 3 months ago”
  2. In a Bloomberg interview, Jim Wong, Acer president says Chromebooks account for up to 10% of Acer’s US shipments
  3. In addition, Acer may release a $99 Chromebox. In my opinion, a device at this price-point could be a significant driver for ChromeOS adoption
  4. HP have released the first Chromebook with a 14″ screen, joining Samsung, Acer and Lenovo on the list of Chromebook manufacturers
  5. The Samsung Chromebook is the best-selling laptop on Amazon (ahead of Apple MacBook)
  6. ZDNet comparative review: Surface RT vs. Samsung Chromebook: On the road
  7. Chromebook Customer Panel: Virtualization – three school districts discuss how they are using Chromebooks with Ericom AccessNow
