Senior Vice President of Google’s consumer devices Osterloh Rick announced that the company is not going to release a new model of Chromebook Pixel. Such a statement he made at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Under the brand Pixel was released two devices based on Chrome OS, and the latest model cost in USA 1299 dollars. Other manufacturers make much cheaper chromebooks.
As found by TechCrunch, now under the brand Pixel will be produced only smartphones and tablets. At the same time, Google continues to develop Chrome OS, but this operating system will be installed only on devices from other manufacturers.
According to rumors, Google is working on a universal operating system Andromeda, which combines Android and Chrome OS — its release might affect future plans of Google. The company will be able to use a variety of devices — from smart watches to computers.
