Samsung will reportedly launch an Android notebook in the coming months

Samsung AndroidBook release date

Earlier reports have indicated that Google and its partners are preparing to launch Android-powered notebooks that could debut later this year. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities notes that Samsung is just one of many companies that will launch such a product within the coming months, 9to5Google reported. The analyst warns that these “AndroidBooks” won’t be announced at Google’s upcoming I/O Developers Conference due to the delayed launch of Android 5.0, however, which is meant to help further bridge the gap between computers and smartphones.

Kuo said that Samsung will, nevertheless, launch an Android-powered notebook in the next three to four months to get a jump on the competition. Initial shipments of the computer will reportedly be limited because “the current Android OS isn’t well supported for laptops.”

In addition to upcoming AndroidBooks, the analyst believes that Google is readying an Apple TV competitor, although he doesn’t expect the device to debut at I/O due to a recent change from a Texas Instruments processor to an NVIDIA Tegra chip. Kuo also said that a Google smart watch, which will compliment the company’s Google Glass device, will enter mass production sometime next year.

Google’s I/O Developers Conference is scheduled to take place between May 15th and May 17th in San Francisco.
