Summary:

Competition is heating up in the larger Chromebook space. Toshiba’s Chromebook 13 gets reviewed and next month, Samsung’s Chromebook 2 arrives; both have large displays. And Chrome for Android gains a hidden new Chromecast trick: we tell you how to enable it.

There’s only one 13.3-inch Chromebook on the market currently and we review it on this week’s podcast. In just a few weeks it will be joined by another as Samsung’s Chromebook 2 is official; one model will have a full HD 13.3-inch display. Chrome beta for Android can now stream web videos to a Chromecast while Google’s hands-free voice search comes to beta. Tune in to this week’s Gigaom Chrome Show to hear all about those topics and more.
