Smita Hashim, Global Product Manager, Chrome OS at Google said, "When we introduced Chromebooks 4 years ago, we wanted to build a laptop for the way people use computers today, always fast, easy to use and secure by default. Since launching Chromebooks in India, we've been working to ensure that Chromebooks work in an environment where connectivity can be spotty and many people's first experiences with technology are through a phone rather than a laptop."
