Normally, when a major technology company wants to make an announcement there is a press release or something along those lines. Google has instead decided to take to its Chrome Blog with a poem in order to announce that Chromebooks are coming to nine new markets.
The tech giant confirmed that Chromebooks are headed to New Zealand, the Philippines, Norway, Denmark, Mexico, Chile, Belgium, Spain and Italy. Unfortunately, the poem does not reveal any specific dates for when this might happen, but some reports suggest we could see them hit the above countries in the coming months. There is also no word from Google as to which models will be available in each market, but the poem does link to this Google Chrome Blog post mentioning a new line-up of Chromebooks coming from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, LG and Toshiba.
Within the poem, it appears Google is also saying that “tons of apps and free automatic updates are starting today” in Mexico and Chile, with Spain, Italy and Belgium being added in the coming weeks.
Some have suggested the company still has quite a hurdle to get over convincing consumers that its always connected computing is the way to go, but that expanding its availability could help the cause.
