Yes 4G launches World’s First Samsung 4G Chromebook in Malaysia

What if you were given unlimited access to learning anytime, anywhere, right at your fingertips? Yes, together with Samsung and Google, just made that possible with the launch of the world's first Samsung 4G Chromebook in Malaysia that was held at The Majestic Hotel, KL, today. 

The Samsung 4G Chromebook comes with a built-in 4G chipset so with a just a single Yes ID, users are provided with high-speed mobile Internet connectivity of up to 20Mbps on the Yes 4G network anytime, anywhere! It's a great educational tool as it is lightweight, it boots in seconds and comes with popular Google apps like YouTube, Gmail and Drive, so users can work and play anytime, anywhere on the Yes 4G network coverage across Malaysia.

Not only that, 1BestariNet users can access the Frog VLE for free on this new computing tool. That means every student, parent, and teacher now has free access to a wealth of interactive and fun education resources found on the Frog VLE under the 1BestariNet project! How amazing is that? 

 YTL Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato' (Dr) Francis Yeoh, enthusiastically speaks about how the Yes network makes Cloud Computing possible anywhere in Malaysia.



YTL Communications Chief Executive Officer, Wing K. Lee explains how the Samsung 4G Chromebook connects schools all across Malaysia through the Frog VLE learning platform under the 1BestariNet project. 


"Today we're happy to say we're one step closer to making Chromebooks truly ‘for everyone’ - or rather, ‘untuk semua orang’.” - Caesar Sengupta, Product Management Director at Google.

Lee officially presents the Samsung 4G Chromebook - a new computing device that's a mere 17.5 mm thin and weighs just 1.1 kilograms, with a 7-hour battery life.



“The Samsung 4G Chromebook will be a first device for many people. It is affordable, secure and always connected to the Internet. No one will be left out of the Internet age,” - Wing K. Lee, YTL Communications Chief Executive Officer.
