Could the Google Chrome OS Hit Netbooks This Year?

Labels: , , , ,

All the buzz about the Google Chrome OS hasn't died yet. Early reports, by Google themselves, mentioned that the Chrome OS should be available by the end of 2010. But according to Eric Schmidt, HP and Acer could launch netbooks with the Chrome OS by the end of this year. First, we'll see how smooth things go before getting overexcited.

Netbooks running Chrome OS, Google’s newly announced operating system, may be available later this year, according to a report from Reuters, which quoted Google chief executive Eric Schmidt at the Allen & Company media and technology conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, on July 9.
“Everybody we’ve talked to under nondisclosure is excited about the plan,” Schmidt told Reuters. “So hopefully later this year we’ll see some announcements.”
According to Reuters, Hewlett-Packard and Acer are working with Google to create devices running Chrome OS, which was designed to better exploit the Chrome browser and modern Web services, such as online applications.
