Chromebooks hit UK shelves pre-order pages

A month's wait, at least

Netbooks and notebooks based on Google's Chrome OS look set to arrive in the UK early next month - though you'll wait longer if you want a 3G-connected model.

According to Amazon UK, Samsung's Series 5 Chromebook will be out on 1 July, with the 3G version following on 1 August.

The site lists them at £350 and £400, respectively.

Aussie e-tailer Kogan, which earlier this week claimed it was shipping a Chromebook now has the end of July down as its machine's ETA.

It, like Amazon, is taking advance orders. ®
