Meet the Google Pixel. a 2560 x 1700 4 million pixel touchscreen Chromebook. Developer Francois Beaufort, the same guy we have used in previous posts about the new Notification Center in Chrome, is calling it the Google Link. As with any leak of any type, the name is subject to change and most likely has several code names.
The video clip that hit Google+ was quickly removed from YouTube. The clip suggested that a company named Slinky.me was behind the it. The CEO,Victor Koch, said they were attached by hackers and that a number of videos that they were working on were hi-jacked and made available. This could be truth, it could be lies. It could be a marketing stunt by Slinky.me and Google. Possibly tossing out something that seems to only be fiction as far as the market is concerned right now, and just the coverage and conversations surrounding it. We know this will be a big topic today and we are sure Google is watching closely.
New ChromeBook – Next Generation Concept… by androidauthority
The tag line in the video, “Designed by Google. Down to the last pixel.” Sure does get a person’s heart racing. It certainly wouldn’t surprise us if Google has a few dozen models of the Pixel sitting around somewhere. That doesn’t mean we will see it announced or launched this year. Look at Google Glass. Absolutely outstanding, still far from being publicly sold. I do think Google needs to keep moving forward though. They have a phone and a tablet, now they need a Chromebook. It will be interesting to see what happens and emerges going forward. Who knows, maybe Google will show off a working prototype at Google I/O. Wouldn’t that just make for one heck of a show this year?
What are your guys thoughts on the Chromebook Pixel?
