  • Internet giant Google's Chromebook, a laptop-like device or a netbook tailor-made for Web browsing and running on its Chrome Operating System, is likely to be shipped in India by early 2012.

    Sundar Pichai, Senior Vice-President, Chrome and Apps for Google, said: “we are very excited about chrome books we have taken our 1st step in the long journey. so we have exceeded the market in many countries to gain mindshare. In 2012 we will be expanding in more countries and it's my hope that we will be India also.”

    Chromebook was launched earlier this year and runs on Google's cloud-based operating system and its Web browser Chrome. Priced between $349 to $499 in the international markets, only Samsung and Acer currently sell Chromebooks through online stores.

    “Chrome, is very popular on laptops, where most of the time is spent browsing and, it was natural for us to take the next step: build an OS to bring the full power of the Web to users. In October 2011, Chrome overtook Microsoft's Internet Explorer as the most popular browser in India,” Pichai said.

    Analysts say Google needs to address issues of pricing and features to make it a success in India.

    Google says as of now Chrome will be only for the laptop market, while the popular android operation system will be for Smartphone's and tablets.
