Commenting on the launch, Smita Hashim, Global Product Manager, Chrome OS said:

When we introduced Chromebooks four years ago, we wanted to build a laptop for the way people  use  computers  today  ­  always  fast,  easy  to  use,  and  secure  by  default.  Since launching Chromebooks in India, we’ve been working to ensure that Chromebooks work in an environment  where  connectivity  can  be  spotty,  and  many  people’s  first experiences  with technology are through a phone rather than a laptop.
