CES 2018 wrap-up: More Android TVs than you can shake a remote at

Friday, January 12th, 2018

CES is wrapping up (I left Thursday afternoon), so we figured it would be a good time to sit down and give all of you an easy place to find a bunch of the stuff announced that are related to Android. This post will focus on all of the television sets that will come with Android TV installed. I got see a few of them on the show floor, but they weren't all that exciting from a brief glance standpoint — we've all seen TVs and most of us know what Android TV looks like by now.

HP announces two new Chromebooks and the Chromebox G2 desktop

Saturday, January 6th, 2018

CES is almost upon us, but a few companies aren't waiting to make announcements. HP just unveiled two new Chromebooks, one 11-inch and one 13-inch, targeted towards the educational market. The company also announced the Chromebox G2, a successor to the 2014 HP Chromebox.

HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE

First up is the Chromebook 11 G6 EE, an 11-inch laptop designed for students. It's built using industrial co-molded rubber with reinforced corners, and HP says it can handle bumps and drops from 2.2 feet (0.7 meters) onto bare concrete.

New DisplayHDR certification defines standards for HDR displays on PCs

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Given that not all displays are equal—IPS is better than TN, HDR is better than non-HDR, some people prefer LCD, others prefer OLED—a certification system for what displays can do seems overdue. The display standards body VESA has (at least partially) filled that void with the newly-announced DisplayHDR standard, which defines the abilities of display panels used in notebook PCs and monitors for desktop PCs.

Rather like the standards for SD cards that define how responsive a card would be in a specific context—like V30 for recording 4K video, or A1 for supporting a particular minimum random I/O response—DisplayHDR defines measurable standards for display panels.

Lenovo Thinkpad 13 Chromebook, Acer Chromebook 11, and three others receive Android app support

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

It has been a slow journey, but Google has been hard at work giving more Chromebooks access to Android app support. The Play Store arrived on 17 more Chromebooks last month, and now Google has added a few more to the growing list.

First off, the Acer Chromebook 11 (C740) and Dell Chromebook 11 (7310) now have Android app support in the Chrome OS Beta channel. If you have either of those Chromebooks, and you can't wait for the feature to be finished, switching to the Beta channel is pretty easy.

Acer Chromebook 15, HP Chromebook 11 G5, and 15 others now fully support the Play Store

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Earlier this year, Google announced that all Chromebooks shipped in 2017 and beyond would support the Play Store. Some models have shipped with the feature already enabled, while others took a few months after launch to get everything working. At the same time, Google has been working to backport the Play Store to older Chromebooks.

Most recently in August, Google brought Android app support to a massive number of Chromebooks, either in the stable or beta Chrome OS channels.

Google promised that all Chromebooks shipped in 2017 and beyond would support Android apps, but the company has been a bit slow to deliver on that claim.

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

The vast majority of Chromebooks are still lacking Android app support. Over 80 models are listed as 'Planned' to receive the feature on the Chromium Wiki, with 14 devices currently supporting it to some degree. A few new Chromebooks have hit the market over the past month with the Play Store included, at least when using the Beta channel for Chrome OS.

First up is the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (R751T), pictured above, which was announced in January and doesn't actually seem to be out yet.
