Chrome OS Goes Retail June 15th. Major Announcements.

Google made some major announcements regarding Chrome OS today, to many for me to list in a single post. The biggest news is that Chromebooks (yep, that's an official name now) will be available for retail purchase June 15th at Amazon.com and Best Buy. Pricing ranges from $350 for the Acer to $480 for the Samsung wiht 3G. There will also be monthly fee option for Educational Institutions and Businesses, $20 and $28 irrespectively. If you haven't already seen the video below, take a look, it's a pretty awesome glimpse into Google's plans for Chrome OS.
