Google has announced that it is expanding the availability of the Chromebooks to nine new countries, including Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Philippines, Mexico and Chile.
That’s a long list, but you should know that every model will not be available in the regions mentioned above, at least in the start.
Unfortunately, the search engine giant didn’t really share anything about the pricing of the in the regions, but it’s still comes as a good news that Google is trying to reach more international markets.
