Samsung launching the ‘Androidbook’ in coming months? Google also working on TV and SmartWatch

Earlier in April, DigiTimes reported that Google will introduce an Android based notebook later this year, also Intel recently said that there will be a $200 Android notebooks as well. It seems the “Androidbook” is coming to real soon reality as KGI Securities analyst Mingchi Kuo is spilling some beans about Google’s upcoming Android devices.

He said that upgraded version of Nexus 7 is coming out at the upcoming Google I/O event, but along with that, he said that  an Android powered notebook, a new TV product, and a Google SmartWatch is on the list of the products Google will be releasing later this year. Have a look on what he said about the Androidbook:

Android Book – Android Book won’t be introduced at the upcoming Google I/O as development of Android 5.0, which is targeted at NB, is incomplete. We think Android Book featuring Android.4x will be rolled out in the coming 3-4 months because some brand vendors, like Samsung (Korea), want to move first. But shipments will be limited as the current Android OS isn’t well supported for laptops.

Also Google is working on an Apple TV competitor, which will be coming out a little late because of the transfer to a NVIDIA Tegra chip from TI OMAP.About the Google SmartWatch, it is coming soon and it will work alongside the recently introduced Google Glass.

What we know is Google have a lot of good stuff for their customers, so I guess we are looking forward to an amazing year by Google. What are your thoughts about it? Do you think Google should step in and focus on other things like TV and notebook? Tell us about it in the comment box below.

    Good chance now that HP let the cat out of the bag hours before Google I/O and announced a Tegra 4 ‘Transformormer’ style notebook – it will be no surprise if Samsung offers one too.
