Google releases Chromebook data plan

Mobile phone network Three has made public the Google Chromebook’s accompanying data allowance and costs, as the official 3G connectivity partner in the UK.

Google’s Chromebook was announced by the Internet search engine giant last week, as a low-cost notebook that solely runs from a form of their Chrome browser – as the primary operating system, with apps that run from inside of that browser.

The idea behind the laptop is for a computer that doesn’t take a great deal of time to boot, as the Chromebook can be up and running within seconds and getting on line can be almost instantaneous.

Samsung has released details of their Chromebook, with a 12.1-inch 1280x800 screen that’s powered by a Intel Atom dual-core processor and has 8.5 hours of continuous usage for £399.

The Chromebook has built-in 3G capabilities, which comes with a free SIM card from Three that includes 3GB of free data that can be used in the first 3 months after activation.

Three’s Pay As You Go plans are a part of the Chromebook, which are priced at £2.99 for 500MB day pass, £10 a month for an additional 1GB, £15 for 3GB and £25 per month for a 7GB data allowance.
