The Chromebit, manufactured by Asus, will be available from this summer and will be priced at less than US$100 (€93).
Based on the Google Chrome browser, the Chromebit OS can be used with applications such as Gmail and Google Docs.
The device includes 2GB of RAM and 16GB of local storage, which can be complemented by Google’s cloud storage platform. Network connectivity is provided by 802.11ac WiFi. Connectivity with peripheral devices can be enabled via Bluetooth.
“By simply plugging this device into any display, you can turn it into a computer. It’s the perfect upgrade for an existing desktop and will be really useful for schools and businesses,” said Google engineer Katie Roberts-Hoffman in a blog posting.
The device is likely to compete with Intel’s Compute Stick, unveiled in January.
