Google Sirens Android Arrival On Laptop- Wonder If Microsoft Surface Pro And Apple iPad 5 Are Ready To Enter The Game

Early morning and a googly bowls me out. Hey, that is no typo; I did intend to use the cricketing jargon. Moving on to some punny fun, here’s why the googly hit me— Google might just be in mind to launch an Android-powered laptop. More to this—Google intends to keep the model affordable enough for catering to the low-end segment.

 

Let us not forget that the Google Chromebook Pixel is ample to keep high-end users beaming for a decent bit of time!

 

However, with this tidbit, all I was wondering is—would this be a clarion call to Microsoft? Would it now launch Android-laptops?

 

When tech giants are discussed, how could I forget Apple? If Google goes the Android way, Apple too might not be too snug. Perhaps, as per leaks an economical MacBook is in the air. Perhaps, this could be Apple’s soldier to fight an-in-the-making warrior from Google. While iPad, iPhone and MacBooks are a rage, Apple might just choose to tighten laces.

 

Microsoft too is a darling for its Surface tabs, but you never know if insecurity beats it to render a new line of products.

To start with, apparently, Google itself was unable to forecast the demand for its flagship smartphone accurately, with demand far exceeding what they had expected. What’s even worse news is that owing to a fixed contract agreement between Google and the phone’s manufacturer, LG, Google cannot even demand that LG increase the supply of this device.

While it may be shocking to dismiss this as an oversight in an age when other popular smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 cost over $599, it is possible that Google wanted to limit this subsidized offer of the Nexus 4 in the market to start with and deliberately didn’t make too many pieces.

Whatever the reason, looks like people who have managed to order the Nexus 4 are in for a long wait, and people who want to order this phone may have to look for alternatives instead.… Read the rest
