Friday, May 15, 2015: Search engine giant Google has unveiled two new affordable Chromebooks – Xolo Chromebook and Nexian Air Chromebook in India. Priced at Rs. 12,999, both the devices come with 16GB of internal storage.
While Xolo is an Indian handset manufacturer, Nexian is a tech-firm from Indonesia. Though the Chromebooks were announced in March, the pre-order for these devices will go live today. Powered by Rockchip RK3388 quad-core processor coupled with 2GB RAM, these devices will also get a 100GB of Google Drive cloud storage.
While the Xolo Chromebook will be available exclusively on Snapdeal, the Nexian Air Chromebook will be offered by Amazon. Apparently, Google has confirmed that it will also introduce Chromebooks from Asus and Samsung in the coming months.
“Superfast to boot-up with built-in security and virus protection, Chromebooks help teachers and students get straight down to learning. They also come with Google Apps for Education which make it easy to create, learn and collaborate.”
“With the Chromebook Management Console, administrators can set up and manage up to thousands of Chromebooks from a computer or phone. Plus, regular updates from Google mean that Chromebooks actually get better over time, reducing school’s maintenance and software costs,” said Google in a press note.
