Last month, Business Insider reported that Google could be displacing the employees of the division of laptops and tablets that brought us the Pixelbook premium and the Pixel Slate, which are very expensive, citing " cuts from the roadmap ". But Google originally declined to comment, the company now tells The Verge that its hardware division actually has new laptops and tablets on the way.
While Google did not talk about details or time, it did show a great sign today: as reported 9to5Google the company led a session in its conference Cloud Next 2019 called "Introduction of hardware Google for business, "where he suggested that a new device could help employees move in a way that Pixelbook and Pixel Slate could not achieve.
"We believe there are unique things we can do differently than Pixelbook and Pixel Slate that are really going to help give them what they are looking for when they are working in this new modern era in the cloud," said Steve Jacobs, leader of the Product management of Pixelbook Group, according to the report.
Interestingly, Jacobs' own LinkedIn profile shows that he leads three different categories within Google's main technology group: "Pixelbook", "Pixel Slate", and the so-called "Emergent."
We are not yet Sure what "Emerging" means, but Jacobs' speaker profile for Cloud Next describes the Core Technology group's approach as "the search for new and innovative ways to advance the way we work and play." on personal computers ", so it's probably another type of PC.
While" Google Enterprise Hardware "is also a new name, it may not be a completely new initiative, it seems to be part of the previous version Google's Chrome Enterprise push Google is also quietly working on a new operating system that, in theory, could replace Android and Chrome OS someday, called Fuchsia, although Google has said it is just one of many experimental projects in the company.
