We were under the impression that Google’s new Samsung Chromebook would only be able to hook up to the internet via Wi-Fi, but it seems that something got lost in the announcement. A 3G model will in fact be available, and can be ordered now from both Amazon and Samsung itself. The 3G Chromebook comes with 2 years of up to 100MB of free data per month from Verizon (like previous Chromebooks) and costs $ 329.99 — an $ 80 premium over the $ 249.99 Wi-Fi-only model. Otherwise, all looks to be the same as the ARM-based Chrome OS laptop we saw for ourselves yesterday.
Thanks, Stefan Constantinescu!
