Google's Chromebook Pixel opens USB Type-C to Android, Chrome OS devices

Agam Shah | March 12, 2015
Starting with the new Chromebook Pixel, Google is paving the way to a future in which Chrome OS and Android devices will charge faster and have fewer ports.

The Chromebook Pixel will also move data faster between the laptop and peripherals. The USB 3.1 port can shuffle data at up to 10Gbps (bits per second), which is two times faster than the current USB 3.0. The USB 3.1 technology has also received publicity for the USB Type-C cable, which is the same on both ends so users can flip cables and not worry about plug orientation.

Google has also launched a new Google Store from where the Pixel made by Google and others can be purchased.
