As expected, the latter part of today's Google I/O keynote focused on Chrome OS and the first actual products that utilize it. That's right, the Chromebooks are here, in name and detail at least because Google says they will be available for ordering as of June 15.
There have been two Chromebook revealed and they will both make their debut in seven countries - the US, the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain and Italy, next month.
The first device announced (known as the Series 5 Chromebook) is made by Samsung and it features a 12.1-inch (1280 x 800) display, a dual-core Atom processor (N550 or N570), a full-size keyboard, a large fully-clickable trackpad, a 4-in-1 card reader, a HD webcam, WiFi and optional 3G, two USB 2.0 ports, and a battery allowing for up to 8.5 hours of operation. The WiFi-only model will cost $429, while the 3G-equipped one will go for $499. Both versions weight in just 1.48kg.
The second product introduced comes from Acer, it weights 1.34kg and has similar specifications, the exceptions being the display, which is 11.6-inch in size, the added HDMI output (Samsung's model only has a mini-VGA port), and the battery which is good for 6 hours of work. Acer's Chromebook starts at $349.
Beside the Chromebook, Samsung has also developed a slim desktop (Chromebox) running Chrome OS but t seems they aren't ready to announce it just yet.
