Lenovo planning to bring out more Chromebooks


Lenovo intends to expand its Chromebook line in the coming months.

Currently, Lenovo’s Chromebooks tend to be focused on education, although there are plans for “multiple Chromebook models” by the summer of 2014.

Jay Parker, president for Lenovo’s North American operations, told CNET: “I think Chromebooks can be very impactful in the market really quickly. We believe the market will accelerate greatly in the next 12 months.”

Lenovo is the world’s biggest PC vendor, holding approximately 17 per cent of the PC market. Its next ambition is to be the biggest seller of smart devices, such as tablets, smartphones and smart TVs. Currently, some of these products are only available outside of the US, but the company wants this to change. While there isn’t a specific timeline, it will be “sooner rather than later”.

In regards to wearable technology, Mr Parker praised it and called it “fascinating”, but said that his company would hold off producing some form of smartwatch, preferring to wait and see whether or not the market is ready for it on a mass scale.
