Three has confirmed that it has been chosen as the 3G connectivity partner for the Chromebook launch in the UK.

Although no price details have been revealed, it's quite a coup for the network - especially if the deal is exclusive for a period (we'll find out in the next few days if it is).

Chromebooks went official at Google I/O over in San Francisco on Wednesday, with the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook getting a high profile launch event.

Sammy's Chromebook goes on sale here in the UK on 24 June and costs £399 for the 3G version, which is obviously the one Three is concerned with.

Acer also announced that it too has a Chromebook ready to go - and we fully expect there to be more partners for Google as the platform develops.
