CES 2014 has come to an end, but Lenovo says it’s just gearing up to unleash a barrage of new Chromebooks in early 2014. Speaking to CNET, Jay Parker, president of the company’s North American operations, said the Lenovo will release several new Chrome OS devices this year.

Lenovo already offers a few Chromebooks, including the Thinkpad X131e (pictured above), though these models mainly target the education market. The company says it sees big growth for Chrome OS devices coming in 2014, and plans to take advantage of the trend this year. “I think Chromebooks can be very impactful in the market really quickly,” Parker explained.

As for wearables, which also dominated much of CES 2014, Lenovo says it has no short term plans for the budding market. Instead, the company says it will take a “wait-and-see” approach while the new product category develops. Even so, the Lenovo has a big year ahead of it, with plans to bring its line of smartphones to the U.S. by mid-2014.

There’s no word on when any of these devices will hit the market exactly, but we’re looking forward to plenty more news from Lenovo in the next few months. Stay tuned.
