Just last week we broke cover on the first detachable/tablet Chromebook, codenamed ‘Poppy’. Since then, many have weighed in on the future of tablets and detachables in the Chrome OS space.

We are just a few weeks into 2017 and things in the Chrome OS world have been pretty crazy already. We’ve seen the ASUS Chromebook Flip and Samsung Chromebook Pro show up and already seen signs of detachables on the horizon.
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, […]
Similar to last year’s pre-October-4th timeline, details are bubbling up left and right surrounding the newest Chromebook to grab the public’s attention: ‘Nocturne’. Some of these details we’re sharing today were unearthed a couple weeks ago by the folks over at XDA, but they somehow slipped past my radar. In combination to what we’ve seen […]
Just a few days ago news broke that a very credible source (Evan Blass: @evleaks) had it on good authority that we’ll see a followup to the Pixelbook at this year’s Google hardware event, likely on October 4th. Obviously, we’re quite excited about an update to the Pixelbook as it is, in my opinion, the […]
I was going through my morning routine of coffee and Chromium repository surfing when I stumbled across a new board overlay that was added just a few days ago. At first glance, the new Chromebook, code-named ‘Rammus’, appeared to be yet-another Kaby Lake device to add to the ever-growing list. For the most part, that […]
The Chromebook known simply as ‘Atlas’ is making waves this week as it may be the first Chrome OS device to sport a true 4K resolution display. We were sitting around the office this morning kicking around ideas of what the application for such a pixel-dense display could be on a form-factor as small as […]
2018 could be shaping up to be a monumental year for the world of Chrome OS. Google’s Pixelbook has laid the foundation for a new generation of Chromebooks and the flagship device is just the tip of the iceberg. Tablets, a long-awaited Chromebox and even detachable Chromebooks could soon be the latest and greatest devices […]
Just as we did with the upcoming Chromebook ‘Eve’, we are starting to see tons of details emerge for the first detachable Chromebook known only as ‘Soraka’. We’ve covered a few things around ‘Soraka’ and the baseboards/keyboard that make it up. You can read here if you need to catch up. What we are seeing […]
Well, folks, this makes two. We originally discovered ‘Eve’ having a dedicated Assistant button a few weeks back and, at the time, wondered if it would be the only device getting such treatment for the time being. In the ‘Eve’ is a #madebyGoogle device theory, it would stand to reason that ‘Eve’ would be in […]
We track upcoming Chromebooks around here. A lot. While we have a relatively firm grip on what is going on and what is coming, even we discuss boards and codenames from time to time with a bit of confusion clearly lining our faces. “Who knows at this point?” is a common refrain when a question […]
As we are seeing the development of Android apps on Chromebooks finally starting to see a launch point, the next place for the platform to grow is clear: tablets and detachables. Let’s face it. Convertibles are great, but there is still a big market for tablets not attached to physical hardware. Sure, the lines have […]
