Rumored specifications have hit the Web
detailing Google's forthcoming Chrome OS netbook. According to IBTimes
the search giant has spoken with several hardware manufacturers about making its netbook, which will reportedly be powered by an ARM processor and a chipset from Nvidia's Tegra line.
The Google Chrome OS
netbook will supposedly tote a 10.1-inch TFT HD-ready multi-touch display, a 64GB SSD, 2GB of RAM, USB ports, a webcam, a multi-card reader, a 3.5mm audio jack, as well as Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity.
The netbook is expected to hit shelves in the holiday season of 2010, and will ship with various Google apps preinstalled, such as Google Map, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Google Search by Voice.
Rumors indicate that Google will offer its netbook for a sub-$300 price when accompanied by a contract with network operator such as AT&T or Verizon, but almost everything is hearsay at this point.
