Sweden Poised to Receive Chromebooks

Sweden will be the first Scandinavian country to receive Google Chromebooks, joining five other European markets.

As you’ll recall, in March, Google announced France, Ireland, Holland and Germany would join the established UK market.

Although the 100GB Google Drive storage for two years is still being offered, Swedes won’t be getting a price break. They will pay 2990 SEK ($456 USD) for the WiFi Samsung models and about 3490 SEK ($533 USD) for the 3G versions. Swedish retailers Elgiganten, Komplett.se and Dustins have been enlisted to sell the Chrome-based laptops online and in store.

Acer C7 models will also be offered in the 2295 SEK to 2990 SEK price range.
