Jolibook Cloud-based Netbook to be Unveiled This Month

The Jolicloud netbook, also called Jolibook, is scheduled to be released in late November, according to the announcement of Jolicloud CEO, Tariq Krim. The Jolibook will come with Jolicloud 1.1, the latest version of the operating system. Moreover, the version shipping with the Jolibook will be preloaded with Chromium for a web browser, which is anticipated to auto-update to the latest version to make it easy for the common customers. In terms of its specifications, the Jolibook will be run by the latest Intel Atom N550. To be specific, the Atom N550 processor is a dual-core CPU running at 1.5 GHz and can be compared to the CPU inside the base 11-inch MacBook Air. In contrast to the 11-inch MacBook Air, the Jolibook will feature the ability to record 720p video and storage on a 250 GB HDD, which may turn to be much slower but will be good to those needing to obtain a lot of media on their gizmo.


It is going to go on sale in France, the home of Jolicloud, which is followed by other European nations. However, the official price has not been unveiled for this first Chromium OS gadget on the worldwide market.

Thanks to its super fast dual core Atom N550 processor, its stylish screen, its 250GB hard drive, and its affordable price, the Jolibook is expected to be launched at the end of November to users in the world
