South Asian confirms plans for Google OS notebooks.
While not initially keen, it was confirmed yesterday that Dell is working closely with Google on their new Chrome OS to implement it on their future notebooks. Amit Midha, the head of Dell’s South Asian division, told Reuters that the Texas-based company is in fact working with Google on the OS, and just as with Chrome or Android based devices, Dell wants to be “one of the leaders”.
“We have to have a point of view on the industry and technology direction two years, three years down the road, so we continuously work with Google on this,” Amit Midha, Dell’s president for Greater China and South Asia told Reuters.
“There are going to be unique innovations coming up in the marketplace in two, three years, with a new form of computing, we want to be on that forefront … So with Chrome or Android or anything like that we want to be one of the leaders,” Midha said. Midha also added that there were no solid announcements to be made yet but talks are currently under way.
