HP Chromebook 11 LTE now arriving with select retailers

Earlier this morning we learned how the HP Chromebook 11 LTE connectivity would be coming by way of a chip from Altair Semiconductor. While HP has yet to offer any sort of press release style announcement, it seems the pricing has been revealed by way of a retail product listing. The listing comes courtesy of Best Buy, who have the LTE-equipped Chromebook available and priced at $379.

The HP Chromebook 11 has been returning to an available status following the charger recall. The Chrome-running notebook has come available direct from HP as well as with Amazon and from the Google Play Store. The catch remains though, for now, the Chromebook 11 is only available with WiFi in terms of connectivity. HP had said an LTE model was in the works, but haven't offered much beyond that just yet.

Google wants Chrome for Android to be faster, more useful to Developers

Over on the Blink Google Groups page, Engineer Eric Seidel lays out some details from a recent meeting of the web platform team. In his post, he outlines some goals for Chrome in 2014.

Chrome for Android inspires Chrome OS to bring web pages to life as apps

With Chrome Beta for Android, we have the ability to turn any webpage into an app. By selecting “add to homescreen” from the menu, we get a quick-launching app right from our device. It was a feature that we find incredibly useful, and one that we’d like to see make a wider impact. An update to Chrome OS is giving users that functionality, and we hope it goes far beyond that platform.

HP Chromebook 11 charger recall detailed by Google

Google and HP have recently begun the recall process for the Chromebook 11 charger. The charger was one of the reasons this particular Chromebook attracted some attention at launch, it is microUSB and similar to the one you already have for your smartphone or tablet. But at the same time, that charger was also prone to overheating and after some "guidance and approval" from the CPSC, the recall process is now underway.

HP Chromebook 11 charger test shows high temp of 140° F

HP released the Chromebook 11 back in October, only to have it pulled from the shelves a month later. The Chromebook was pulled due to issues with the charger. At the time HP had said a "small number" of user reports showed the charger being "damaged due to over-heating during use." While HP has yet to say when the Chromebook 11 would return to an available status, there has been some testing done on one of those chargers.
