Latest Google Earnings Report Skimpy on Chromebook Info

On July 14, Larry Page, Google’s CEO, was excited to report that Google’s revenue was up by 32 percent year-on-year and that the company achieved a new record for quarterly revenue at just over over $9 billion.

Page seemed even more excited to announce that Google+, which started last month, has already grown to 10 million users.

Google even gave us a new metric: there are 550,000 Android devices activated a day. And the search giant reiterated that Chrome is now considered the fastest-growing browser with over 160 million users.

But what about Chromebooks?

Susan Wojcicki, Google SVP and advertising chief, basically said that Chromebooks were being sold in seven countries but disclosed no information on sales and no projections for the future. Is this a case of no news is good news? Or are the numbers just a drop in that big $9 billion bucket?

We remain curious and hope some Chromebook information surfaces in the third quarter.
