In a not-totally-surprising move yesterday, Google hinted very strongly that another #madebyGoogle device is in the works and will be announced “down the road.” At the annual Cloud Next event, in a session titled Google Hardware For Business, a juicy hint was dropped that is making it quite clear that Google is not out of […]
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.
AMD’s entrance into the Chrome OS space may not have carried with it the fanfare many of us were hoping for but the education-focused devices unveiled at CES 2019 were a smart play by manufacturers looking to give AMD a foothold in a market dominated almost entirely by Intel. The low-powered AMD APUs found in […]
In the life of many Chromebooks and other Google software, there is a process that many new things go through known as dogfooding. Dogfooding is simply the everyday use of software and/or hardware by the very developers making and working on them. In the case of Google, dogfooders are used to test out new products […]
If you were lucky, like Robby, you snagged the new ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 last week as it was quietly made available in ASUS’ online shop. Thanks to some expedited shipping options, the highly-anticipated convertible was in our office the next day and ready for a proper unboxing. Robby will have some in-depth thoughts on […]
Just today, news broke that the highly-anticipated ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 became available for order on ASUS’ website. For the time being, the only model on offer is the baseline Core m3 model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage for a rather steep $569 asking price.
Just this weekend we uncovered news of an upcoming duo of tablets coming soon that will feature the newer Mediatek 8183 processor. The duo will both be using the baseboard ‘Flapjack’ and look to be arriving with both an 8-inch and 10-inch version. And while I’m pretty excited about a couple smaller tablet options with […]
It’s really difficult to say when, or even if, Chrome OS tablets will ever take a firm grasp in the consumer market but that hasn’t stopped OEMs from pushing forward in developing the recent form-factor of our favorite operating system. For education and casual use, the RockChip-powered 10.1″ tablets from Acer, ASUS and now CTL […]
Digital signage is a multi-billion dollar industry that is expected to grow at a break-neck pace of more than 7% annually over the next four years and no company is more at home in that arena than AOPEN. From interactive customer kiosks to massive, multi-display advertising, AOPEN’s Chromebase and Chromebox lineups are industry leaders in […]
It has been more than six months since the Chromebooks ‘Ekko’ and ‘Bard’ surfaced in the Chromium repository. We have suspicions these two Chromebooks will make their debut in coming weeks and it appears they will bring some very exclusive features with them. Fingerprint Reader Fingerprint reader support has been a part of Chrome OS […]
We know the arrival of the hotly-anticipated ASUS C434 is just around the corner. What, with the FCC filing already out of the way and the listings already on education/enterprise resellsers like Promevo, the clock is ticking against the full-tilt release of the successor to the very popular ASUS C302.
There had been a bit of a break in news about ‘Atlas’ (which we firmly believe to be the Pixelbook2) since the end of 2018, but things are popping up left and right lately and we’re even inclined to think there’s a good chance that the Pixelbook 2 could make its debut at a smaller […]
Back in August of 2018, a few stories went around stating that Google was working on a facial recognition feature for Chromebooks and, to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t find any real evidence at the time pointing to anything beyond facial recognition for cameras. After all, modern mobile cameras use facial recognition all the time, […]
