Google Chrome OS Tablet Rumored for Nov 26th

Posted on 18 August 2010 by



Downloadsquad have had a tip-off that a Google Chrome OS tablet is coming. Finally we’ll be able to see if it’s just a dumb browser or whether Google have finalised the Chrome Web Store they were promising. It will be interesting to see what platform they’ge chosen too. Could this be the first Moorestown tablet?

Apparently HTC are building it but price and details are unknown at this stage. We’ll put it in the database as soon as we have info.

Google launching a Chrome OS tablet on Verizon, goes on sale November 26.

    a dumb browser? browsers are the most important program on a PC! for some of us who live in the browser its essentially a secondary OS!

    It was a reference to another article title.
    Yes, the browser is very, very important but actually, its a relatively dumb program to use as the operating system. You’ll see what I mean in the article.

    Where are you seeing Moorestown for this device? From the link you provided they suggest Tegra 2, although its a guess.

    They suggest Tegra2 (I don’t see that this Tegra2 information came from any source, just a guess by the author) I suggest that something else is also possible. There’s no source for either rumour. Sorry!

    …confirmed for a Googla Android tablet though according to the article.

    I can’t see how the chance for a Chrome Tablet using Moorestown is more likely than Android Tablet using Moorestown. The latter has more support! The top 2 optimized OSes for Moorestown will be MeeGo, closely followed by Android.
