Just this weekend we uncovered news of an upcoming duo of tablets coming soon that will feature the newer Mediatek 8183 processor. The duo will both be using the baseboard ‘Flapjack’ and look to be arriving with both an 8-inch and 10-inch version. And while I’m pretty excited about a couple smaller tablet options with […]
One of the primary focuses here at Chrome Unboxed is future hardware. After all, our early days were all about new devices! What is coming feels just as important as what is here now, so we will continue looking for the latest and greatest developments in the Chrome OS ecosystem.
It’s really difficult to say when, or even if, Chrome OS tablets will ever take a firm grasp in the consumer market but that hasn’t stopped OEMs from pushing forward in developing the recent form-factor of our favorite operating system. For education and casual use, the RockChip-powered 10.1″ tablets from Acer, ASUS and now CTL […]
Digital signage is a multi-billion dollar industry that is expected to grow at a break-neck pace of more than 7% annually over the next four years and no company is more at home in that arena than AOPEN. From interactive customer kiosks to massive, multi-display advertising, AOPEN’s Chromebase and Chromebox lineups are industry leaders in […]
It has been more than six months since the Chromebooks ‘Ekko’ and ‘Bard’ surfaced in the Chromium repository. We have suspicions these two Chromebooks will make their debut in coming weeks and it appears they will bring some very exclusive features with them. Fingerprint Reader Fingerprint reader support has been a part of Chrome OS […]
We know the arrival of the hotly-anticipated ASUS C434 is just around the corner. What, with the FCC filing already out of the way and the listings already on education/enterprise resellsers like Promevo, the clock is ticking against the full-tilt release of the successor to the very popular ASUS C302.
There had been a bit of a break in news about ‘Atlas’ (which we firmly believe to be the Pixelbook2) since the end of 2018, but things are popping up left and right lately and we’re even inclined to think there’s a good chance that the Pixelbook 2 could make its debut at a smaller […]
Back in August of 2018, a few stories went around stating that Google was working on a facial recognition feature for Chromebooks and, to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t find any real evidence at the time pointing to anything beyond facial recognition for cameras. After all, modern mobile cameras use facial recognition all the time, […]
The upcoming Chromebook, known only as ‘Sarien’ at this point, is a device likely coming from Dell with top-tier specs, a detachable form-factor, and Wacom stylus support. Additionally, the fact that two USB-C docks are being tested alongside both ‘Sarien’ and ‘Arcada’ not only tipped us off to Dell being behind these devices, it also […]
We haven’t spoken much about ‘Cheza’ and Qualcomm-powered Chromebooks in quite a while around here. To be honest, I fully expected to see something from this entire effort at CES or at MWC last week, but we’re still waiting to actually see something emerge from Qualcomm or any other manufacturer.
ASUS is aiming for a March release of their latest flagship Chromebook and it looks as though they should be right on time if reseller listings are accurate. Just last week, an Amazon UK listing popped up for the thin-bezel convertible and even though you can go ahead and place your order, it is technically […]
Ever since we laid eyes on the upcoming ASUS C434 in January at CES, we’ve all been eagerly awaiting the day when it shows up at the office for review. After such a long wait following the excellent C302, the ASUS C434 looks to be every part the proper successor to its beloved predecessor.
Asus predicted a March release date for their newest premium Chromebook and it appears they should be right on schedule if not early to the launch. Our good buddy Kevin Tofel of About Chromebooks has uncovered the FCC filing for the ASUS Chromebook C434 which is a good indicator that it will be available, at […]
