Google's LTE-enabled Chromebook Pixel shipping by April 8

Google's LTE-enabled Chromebook Pixel to ship by April 8, data pricing detailed

| Laptops News | Posted: Mar 25, 2013 9:32 pm

Google's somewhat overpriced Chromebook Pixel comes in two varieties: with or without LTE. The differences between the two models are small. The more expensive Pixel, which features LTE, comes with an LTE radio and 64GB of local storage. The cheaper variety is stuck on Wi-Fi and comes with just 32GB of local storage.

For $1,449 and a delay in shipping, users get access to Verizon's LTE network. Included in the price is 100MB of data per month for two years. The additional access comes at an additional price, which we've listed below:

 

  • $9.99 - an unlimited day pass
  • $20 - 1 GB good for one month
  • $35 - 3 GB good for one month
  • $50 - 5 GB good for one month

 

The unlimited $10 per day pass will likely be the best for users like myself. The only time I would need access and not have Wi-Fi would be at tradeshows or traveling to tradeshows. During those tradeshows, I'd likely be using lots of data and would easily blow through a 5GB cap.

 

If you're already a Verizon customer with a Share Everything plan, you can add the Pixel as an additional device for just $10 per month.
