It’s no secret that the Samsung Chromebook Pro will soon be out in the wild. The premature Amazon listing gave us a release date of May 28th which was then confirmed by Dieter Bohn of The Verge last Thursday. In all of this, Samsung themselves have been very quiet on the whole subject, until Friday that is.
In a long awaited announcement, Samsung pushed out an official press release confirming what most already knew. The Samsung Chromebook Pro would be available online May 28th from Amazon, Samsung and Best Buy for $549.99. This isn’t anything shocking but it is a good sign that anyone who missed their chance to pre-order last week will likely have to wait another week to get in on the action.
Samsung has refreshed their Chromebook landing page as well. It doesn’t look much like the leaked site we stumbled upon last year but it does have the Pro front and center for all the world to see. You can even sign up for an alert when the Pro is officially ready for purchase.
From the Samsung Newsroom:
Built for professionals, the Samsung Chromebook Pro was developed to work both online and offline, so users can continue to access Gmail and Google Docs. It’s also automatically kept up to date, so users will always have the latest virus protection and the latest features.
We have learned that the Samsung Chromebook Pro will ship with Android N but support for window resizing will be delayed, as will features taken from the upcoming Android O. If you want to ensure you don’t get caught behind the rush of buyers, you can sign up for alerts here.
