Chromebook Pixel LTE to start shipping on April 12
The 4G LTE version of Google’s recently launched Chromebook Pixel laptop will reach those customers that ordered it via the Google Play Store on April 12, Google announced.
The company posted a short message on Google+ a few hours ago confirming that the Chrome notebook is finally ready to ship:
Update: folks who ordered the #Chromebook #Pixel LTE from +Google Play will start receiving them as early as Friday, April 12th.
The device was expected to arrive in the first week of April, according to Google’s own estimates, but it looks like it has missed the mark by a few days. Nevertheless, early buyers will be happy to hear that their unit is heading their way.
The Chromebook Pixel LTE is priced at $1,449 and features a 12.85-inch multitouch display with 2560 x 1700 resolution and 239PPI, dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, HD webcam, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 59Wh battery, 4G LTE support and Chrome OS.
