According to an U.S. Federal Communications Commission document disclosed by the U.S. Laptop assessment website Laptop Reviews last weekend, Sony will become one of the Google’s Chromebook manufacturers.
Currently, the Chromebook manufacturers only comprise a few companies, including Samsung and Asus. But Google has not confirmed the news yet.
Google has never disclosed the sales data of the Chrome OS devices, but according to the newspaper “Electronic Times” data, only 5,000 units of Chromebooks were sold in November last year.
Sony stock price gained 1.38%, or $0.28, to end at $20.60 on Monday, curbing the six-consecutive-day losses since Mar 16, 2012. Sony stock price had a bad performance over the past year and has shrunk approximately 36%.
