ASUS and Acer to reveal new Chromebooks in 2H 2013

DigiTimes received word that Acer and ASUS are planning to release new Chromebooks in the second half of this year as both firms are optimistic about the long-term potential of this product class. Additionally, the site heard that Samsung and HP also plan new Chromebooks for the near future.
Acer used to ship 150,000-200,000 units of its existing US$199 11.6-inch Chromebook - which features a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron processor, a 320GB hard disc drive (HDD) and 100GB Google Drive cloud storage - monthly, but the volume dropped to only 20,000-30,000 units in January 2013, which prompted the vendor to halt related shipment plans for the second half of 2013, the sources said.

However, Acer has recently resumed its Chromebook project and will release a new 11.6-inch model in July, targeting students, the sources said.

Asustek, which originally had no plans to join the Chromebook competition, also reportedly will launch a branded Chromebook in the second half, the sources noted.
