Zoho – Chrome Notebook Promotion

General | January 26, 2011 | 1 min read

The tag line under the Zoho logo says “Work. Online”. This is because we believe you can be more productive in getting your work done using online tools like Zoho. Infact, we run Zoho on Zoho AppsWhen Google announced Chrome OS, we were excited about hassle free computing on the cloud. We have been playing with Chrome notebook and we loved it

Today, we are excited to announce a joint promotion with Google. If you love Zoho Apps and use them all the time, you will probably enjoy a Chrome notebook as much as we did. So we are giving away some Cr-48 notebooks to Zoho users through a special promotion that starts today and lasts for a week.

How to Apply

This promotion is available in several Zoho Apps – Zoho Writer, Creator, Books & Invoice. After you visit one of these apps through Chrome Web Store, you might see a banner on the top with an ‘Apply Now’ link. Click it to apply! Selected users will receive a Cr-48.

Update: Here is the blog post from Google on this promotion.

    Has anyone been notified about the promotion? I would assume that they are keeping it as secretive as Google themselves, but would like to check with other people.

    Thanks for the apps…I’ll definitely be using them in the future.Out of curiosity, does anyone know when/how the winners will be notified? Or will it be the same as the Pilot Program’s “you’ll know when it arrives on your doorstep”?

    It’s only available in the U.S. – don’t know why Zoho is stating otherwise. You can even apply properly outside the U.S.

    This is only for US users.
    BTW I tried ZOHO writer for the first time today only, and really I was impressed.
    Now, I’ll try other zoho apps also, and see how do they can impress 🙂
    Good work.

    I will love you forever if your special link gets me a CR-48! Of course that is only the frosting on the cake, the cake being the zoho apps in this case of course ;). But I seemed to be looked over with the traditional chrome notebook application so if this works you gain a fan for life ;).

    I signed up with the original promotions, and a couple of the other sites from the new promotion. Since they all go back to Google, are they going to cancel each other out? Or is it like having multiple chances to win.

    What a coinkeydink. I was searching earlier today and came upon zoho and now just reading about the joint promo. I was looking for a way to unzip files I get via email on my cr48 and into google docs (until such a day that everyone will stop sending large files via email). how can I do that?

    +1 For Raju’s comment.I applied for one in the original release of 60,000 CR-48’s from google, but that was US only. I see the same form design here.This time I just selected Alaska as my state but the UK as my country and provided a full address.The URL seems to pass a referrer id, So I am guessing Google know that it’s a Zoho referral and will supply to customers globally.
