With or Without Chromebooks, Google pushes Chrome OS Software

Google announces new Chromebook laptops and an intriguing new device called the Chromebit that pushes Google’s operating system without trying to sell you a laptop.

Google’s mobile operating system may be the most popular software in the world for powering phones and tablets. But Google is also making a push for its other operating system, Chrome OS, which mostly powers laptop and desktop computers.

Consider a few of the new devices the search giant announced Tuesday. The Asus Chromebit is a small device that looks like an oversize flash drive that turns any screen or monitor with an HDMI video port into a full-blown computer. With the Chromebit, you can connect to a Wi-Fi network and run Google’s Chrome browser, check Gmail and watch YouTube — all through Google’s Chrome operating system.

The device will sell for less than $100, Google said. It’s set to be released this summer.

Then there’s the Asus Chromebook Flip, an all-metal device that’s a cross between a laptop computer and a tablet, which will sell for $249. Google also announced two new laptops from manufacturers Hisense and Haier. The companies’ $149 Chromebooks, designed for the education market, are available for pre-order today on Google’s online store. The Haier laptop is available on Amazon, while the Hisense one is available at Walmart.
