There’s an old saying – “if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”
A recent commit in the Chromium repository has me performing the “duck test” on a newly discovered device codenamed ‘Pbody’. We original found this device and discovered it was to become a 12″ Skylake convertible Chromebook, developed by Lenovo.
Good stuff, right?
The number of fanless, Core M devices has been few and we were excited to see a new competitor throw their hat in the ring. Then, in a euphoric moment of Zen-like proportions, we stumbled across the development of what appears to be a “virtual keyboard” being tested on ‘Pbody’.
And then, we saw the rumors of Lenovo adding a 12″ model to the Yoga Book line carrying Android OS. ‘Pbody’ is sounding more and more like a duck everyday.
Today, I happened across this seemingly insignificant commit from the Chromium reviews.
At first glance I didn’t give this commit much attention. I was busy looking for information for another article. That was, until I scrolled to the comments at the bottom.
