Lenovo is planning to launch Chrome OS version of its 2-in-1Yoga Book laptop sometime around next year.
According to Laptop Mag, VP and General Manager of Lenovo’s Android and Chrome Computing Business Jeff Meredith confirmed in an interview for Tom’s Guide innovation Award that it will be offering a third version of the Yoga Book running Chrome OS next year.
“We've had a lot of interest, said Meredith of a Chrome OS-powered Yoga Book. “It’s an interesting idea for education, especially with the form factor.”
At present, Yoga Book is available in two versions, one running on Windows 10 and another running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
In his interview, Meredith also confirmed that the Real Pen will work on Chrome OS version in the same way as it does on the Android version of the Yoga Book.
“Over time, we probably see the Android and Chrome versions melding together, especially based on the fact that we've now seen Chrome roll out the Google Play store capability into Chrome,” Meredith told Laptop Mag. “We'll probably maintain the three distinctive products throughout this year at least," he added.
