MobileViews Podcast 199: Samsung Chromebook Plus discussion w/guest Paul Lawler

Samsung Chromebook Plus
Guest panelist Paul Lawler and I discuss the recently released Samsung Chromebook Plus that each of us purchased and received a few weeks ago. The Chromebook Plus is the first Chromebook that ships with support for the Google Android app store out-of-the-box (vs. turning on a beta-release of Chrome OS). Paul and I have had very different experiences with this Chromebook. Check out the podcast to learn how different.

Available via Google Music Podcasts and Apple iTunes.
