Between July 1 and September 30, select Virgin America passengers will be able to test fly Google's new Chromebook mobile device for free from 35,000 feet, complete with complimentary in-flight Wi-Fi.
Virgin America passengers traveling between San Francisco and Boston, Dallas, or Chicago can check out one of the devices at designated “Chrome Zone” lounges which will begin popping up near Virgin America gates this week.
Travelers will be able to discuss specs with Google Chrome staff before taking the device for an on-board test drive (err, flight.) Passengers can then return the device at the gate of their destination city.
Google is hoping that its new Chromebook, with an 8 second load time and emphasis on cloud technology, will quickly catch on with on-the-go business travelers.
