Three have announced that they will be the 3G network of choice when Google’s Chromebook laptops launch in the UK.

“I’m sure by now that lots of you will have heard the exciting news from Google. Over in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Centre, Google announced the arrival of Chromebooks, and we’re really excited to be their 3G connectivity partner in the UK,” said Three’s David Kerrigan over on the company blog.

“Three is delighted that we’ve been selected as the 3G connectivity partner for the Chromebook launch in the UK. We’ll have more details to share in the next few weeks so stay tuned.”

Three have grown in popularity thanks to their generous data packages, which would obviously be of benefit to a mobile pretty-much-online-only machine. IT’ll be interesting to see whether Three will offer subsidised Chromebook hardware to go along with their data contracts, but as yet no details have been revealed. We’ll keep you posted as and when announcements are made.
