A Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chromebook is a great choice for everybody from students to business professionals to parents on the go. The power, convenience, and size is something you are going to fall in love with.
While the Chromebook may not be keeping pace with industry frontrunners, there is a good chance that this may change at some point in the near future. The reason for this is simple: Chromebooks are going to be sold in a larger number of stores from here on out. With a larger distribution network, it only makes sense that Google will have the chance to sell a larger number of devices.
According to a recent Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) blog post, Chromebooks “will now be carried in over 3 times more stores than before, or more than 6,600 stores around the world.”
This is a big step forward for the search engine giant. With three times as many stores selling Chromebooks, a larger number of people will be presented with the opportunity to buy. Whether or not these consumers take advantage remains to be seen, but they will most definitely have the chance to do so in the near future.
Here is more from Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG):
“In addition to Best Buy and Amazon.com, we’re excited to welcome several new retailers to the family. Starting today, Walmart will be making the newest Acer Chromebook, which has a 16GB Solid State Drive (SSD), available in approximately 2,800 stores across the U.S., for just $199. Look for Chromebooks coming to the laptop sections of a Walmart near you this summer.
And beginning this weekend, Staples will bring a mix of Chromebooks from Acer, HP and Samsung to every store in the U.S.—more than 1,500 in total. You can also purchase via Staples online, while businesses can purchase through the Staples Advantage B2B program. In the coming months select Office Depot, OfficeMax, and regional chains Fry’s and TigerDirect locations will begin selling Chromebooks.”
In addition to greater distribution in the United States, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is also expanding its Chromebook reach in the United Kingdom as well as Australia among other regions.
It will be interesting to see what this does for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chromebook sales in the months to come. If nothing else, this gives the company a better chance of competing and grabbing hold of more market share.
