Before yesterday, if you told me that we’d be covering anything other than #madebyGoogle hardware this week, I would have laughed. After all, when big players are making big announcements at big, publicized events, you don’t tend to think of other companies dropping small, quiet announcements of new hardware.
One of the primary focuses here at Chrome Unboxed is future hardware. After all, our early days were all about new devices! What is coming feels just as important as what is here now, so we will continue looking for the latest and greatest developments in the Chrome OS ecosystem.
As I said the other day, until this Google event has come and gone, it is silly season around here. Just a few days ago, a GeekBench test showcased the first internal look at what we can expect to see in the Google Pixel Slate, also known as ‘Nocturne’.
It is silly season around Google, folks. Welcome! For the next week, expect a continued flow of leaks around all things #madebyGoogle as we ramp up to the event on October 9th. Today’s news comes via Phone Arena who found Google’s ‘Nocturne’ device lurking around in GeekBench. After seeing this, I quickly went to GeekBench […]
I frequently share my general dislike for Best Buy because of their general lack of knowledge and seemingly inherent disregard for Chromebooks but man, they have become the place to go if you want to see a product before it’s released to the public.
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 […]
As highlighted by Gabriel’s post yesterday, the Pixelbook 2 has been leaked all over the place at this point. From Google themselves, no less, we’ve seen the device in YouTube TV ads, in Google Adsense ads, and now on The Keyword: Google’s own blog. We all know companies “leak” things out all the time, and […]
By now, I don’t know what I would do if I woke up and DIDN’T hear some new news about a Google product leak. Seriously, the shenanigans surrounding Google’s upcoming Pixel 3 phone lineup has become so ludicrous that it makes me wonder if the fine folks in Mountain View have abandoned their own sanity […]
We’re getting a little antsy around the office waiting for the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 to make its arrival to market. We have it on good authority that it will be happening very soon and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Acer will make good on their September launch target. In the meantime, let’s talk […]
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 […]
