Yesterday, from a wide range of sources, it was reported that Google has no plans of ever making a Pixel Chromebook follow up. This lead to a lot of consternation as the Pixel lineup, while having a hefty price tag, were the premium Chrome OS experience.
Well, not so fast. Google’s Rick Osterloh took to Twitter today and laid out that the Pixel Chromebook isn’t dead at all. It is just that there is nothing to report on it.
Hey all, Google’s own Chromebooks aren’t “dead” as has been reported. They will live on, we just have *no plans to share at this time* 😉

Now for those who don’t know who Mr. Osterloh is with Google, he is certainly a voice of authority on this topic. He is the Senior Vice President of Hardware at Google. Yeah, he might know a thing or two.
