If you are keeping tabs on where Chromebooks will be sold in the next few months, keep Taiwan off your list.
For that matter don’t include any country in the Asia-Pacific region.
Vince Wu, a Google senior product manager for the Chrome operating system, announced on July 27: “We don’t have any plans to sell the devices in the Asia-Pacific [region] in the next few months, as we want to test mature markets in the United States and Europe first.”
The European countries include the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Saudi Arabia was added to the list thanks to an exclusive deal with the Saudi Telecom Company (STC).
However, if Chromebook manufacturer, Acer actually wanted to pursue sales in Taiwan, Google would raise no objections, according to Wu.
