Xolo is an Indian smartphone and tablet vendor who just entered the netbook game with the new Chromebook.
The new portable device costs just 12,999 INR or US$205, and is powered by the Rockchip RK3288 processor which GizChina patrons would be well acquainted with. If you aren’t, here’s what the RK3288 has — a quad-core CPU with a 1.8GHz clock rate and a Cortex A17 architecture.
Coming back to the Xolo Chromebook, it has a 11.6-inch screen with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage (10GB out of which should be available to the end user). You would naturally want to add extra storage, and hence, there’s a microSD slot for that.
