Last week we reported on what a looks to be a new Chromebox in the works. ‘Fievel’ appears to be a Rockchip device powered by the RK3288 ARM® SoC. This is the same chip that powers products like the ASUS Flip, Chromebit, Haier Chromebook 11 and a plethora of Android TV devices.
But why a 2 year old ARM® device?
That’s the question I kept asking myself. My initial theory is that some OEM has decided to make an army of cheap Chrome OS machines to offer yet another alternative to the education market. While I believe this could still be a very marketable option, I now believe it’s something much bigger.MORE
