Cr-48, the 12-inch Google Chrome Notebook that was unveiled just two days ago, is already being delivered to customers who ordered them, according to TechCrunch.

The website, which covers all things technology-related, said it received an e-mail and pictures from a reader who filled out a form on Google’s site for one.


The Cr-48 laptop, revealed at a press conference this week in San Francisco, isn’t up for sale in any retail stores. Instead, the computers will be given away as a part of Google’s Chrome operating system pilot program.

The Cr-48 is designed by Google and is available in limited numbers to approved users in order to test out the ‘work in progress’ and provide feedback to the company on how the system works.

Anyone over 18 can apply to take part in the pilot program. Google has not said how many Cr-48s will be given away.
