While Chrome OS will eventually be merging with Android, Google still wants a way to get it’s desktop software out to as many people as possible. Enter, the Chromebit – a computing stick that comes with ChromeOS, that will work with any monitor with an HDMI port. You just need to provide a keyboard and mouse, then – you can turn any TV into a smart TV!
The Chromebit was first announced back in March, but quickly fell to the wayside with Android Marshmallow’s arrival. Google and Asus has just announced that the Chromebit will be available for purchase from your favorite electronics retailers for $85, in the near future. So now, you can carry a tiny computer with you wherever you go – because the Chromebit is only a little bigger than a stick of gum!
