Google puts Chrome OS on your TV with its own HDMI stick

Google has unveiled a whole new type of Chrome device, and it’s one that can fit in your pocket. It’s called the Chromebit, and it’s essentially aChromebook crammed in a dongle. This tiny little package contains a Rockchip 3288 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMC memory, a USB 2.0 port, WiFi 802.11 ac support, Bluetooth 4.0, a Smart Ready controller and an ARM Mali 760 quad-core GPU. Just like Intel’s Compute Stick, all you have to do to get the Chromebit working is to attach it to any display with a HDMI port, and voila, you’ve turned it into a computer. Unlike the Intel stick though, the Chromebit’s HDMI end actually swivels around so that the dongle doesn’t stick out in an unsightly way behind a monitor or TV. As for battery life, well, Google says it doesn’t really know that just yet as the product is still in testing. Google promises that the Chromebit — the first is made by ASUS — will retail for less than $100. It’ll be available in either silver, blue or orange and will be out later this summer.
