Kogan Shipping Chromium Netbook In June

We still don’t have Australian launch dates for Google’s officially-licensed Chromebooks. However, if you’re happy to settle for a device based on the Chromium open source project rather than the Google-sanctioned version, Kogan is listing a 12-inch screen model which is set to ship on June 7, a week ahead of the official overseas Chromebook release.

Priced at $349 plus delivery, the device sports a 1.3GHz Celeron processor, 30GB SSD and 1GB of RAM. There’s also built-in Bluetooth, a webcam and a 3-in-1 card reader. Unusually compared to recent Kogan releases, the pricing is fixed, with no LivePrice bargain for early purchasers.
