Lenovo yoga book, which is already available in two versions i.e. Windows 10 and Andriod 6.0 Marshmallow, is now going to release its Chrome OS version in 2017. No exact date given for the Chrome OS version’s release.
This news was confirmed via Laptop Mag by Jeff Meredith, who is lenovo’s Vice president and General Manager of the Andriod and chrome computing business group.
“We’ve had a lot of interest. It’s an interesting idea for education, especially with the form factor. 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. We’ll probably maintain the three distinctive products throughout this year at least,” Meredith said speaking of the Chrome OS-powered Yoga Book.
