We’ve been covering both the new Pixelbook and mystery #madebyGoogle tablet ‘Nocturne’ for quite some time now. Between the leaks and commits over the past few months, we have a decent picture of what we are fully expecting to see at the Google hardware event in just under 2 weeks. One thing we’ve yet to […]
Chrome OS Tablet
We covered the slew of updated features that were introduced in Chrome OS 70 first in the Dev Channel. The majority of these updates affect tablet mode in general, which isn’t a big surprise given what we are expecting to see at Google’s hardware event just a couple weeks from now.
For the past year, a few Chromebooks have utilized the same high-resolution screen and we’ve been completely fine with that. The Pixelbook, HP Chromebook x2, Samsung Chromebook Pro and Samsung Chromebook Plus all utilize a 2400×1600 resolution screen with good color and brightness and we’ve yet to see anything in the high-res category apart from […]
We’re getting close to the end of the line, folks, and the leaks are coming from every side. We had eyes on some sort of Chrome OS tablet not long ago along with a smattering of updated Pixelbook leaks, so the hype machine is kicking in full-force. Today’s leaks come courtesy of About Chromebooks where […]
We only have about 3 weeks left before the big Google hardware event on October 9th. While the jury is out on whether or not Google has anything surprising in store for the Pixel 3 line of phones, there’s no doubt that there’s much to look forward to when we start talking Chromebooks. It’s a […]
Chrome OS has been a desktop-focused OS since the beginning. That comes as no surprise to anyone, right? Well, with all the most recent changes to Chrome OS both on the software and hardware front, there is more movement than ever getting Chrome OS ready for tablet use cases. With the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 […]
If you need any proof that Google does, in fact, listen to customers, this particular reversal shows that is at least the case when it comes to Chrome OS software decisions. This seems like a small change and it is. To be honest, it is an issue that simply never should have been an issue […]
UPDATE: The link to the bug report has been blocked after this article was published. Looks like we probably hit a bit to close to home! We’re only 31 days out from Google’s upcoming #madebyGoogle hardware event, and though the leaks of the Pixel phones have been rampant to the point of absurdity, we’ve seen […]
We’re currently working on gathering all the new goodies currently available in Chrome OS 70 in the Developer Channel. Since our last video on the subject, the developers have been VERY busy fixing issues and adding more features by the boatload. One feature in particular that we’ve talked about already – fingerprint scanner integration – […]
Sure, the landscape of Chrome OS tablets is pretty lonely for the moment. Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10 is the only completely-tablet option available right now, but devices like HP’s Chromebook x2 and the upcoming #madebyGoogle ‘Nocturne’ are both devices many users will interact with in tablet mode frequently.
That title should tell you a ton about the contents of this article and video. It is crammed full of descriptive words and much longer than we generally make titles. For this article and video, however, it is absolutely fitting as the newest update to our favorite operating system is an absolutely massive one.
We’re learning little tidbits here and there about the upcoming device known only as ‘Nocturne’ at this point. From processor to screen to form factor to fingerprint scanners, we’re slowly beginning to piece together what we may see in October from Google in the Pixelbook family of devices.
