Last week, news of Google planning to produce its own brand of netbooks running on the Chrome OS came out on the Internet. Now, the specs of the netbook is out. The device will hit the market next year. Google previewed the device at its head quarters last month. Google sent out “requests for proposals.” The search engine giant is talking to various hardware manufacturers. Tech Tree reports:

.......Google Chrome OS netbook will incorporate Nvidia Tegra platfrom, possibly Tegra 2 expected next year, and ARM design CPU. The Chrome OS is x86 architecture compatible but will support virtualization only on select devices……

For storage, 64GB SSD would be offered and rest will be relied on Cloud-based storage which the user will have to choose, obviously. Packing 2GB RAM, the other features include Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, USB ports, Ethernet port, integrated webcam, audio port (3.5mm), multimedia card reader, etc.

The netbook will also sport 10.1 inch TFT multitouch screen supporting HD. The Google Netbook will hit the market next holiday season with a subsidized price of $300 in the U.S. Acer claimed that they would launch the netbook.

Rumors about Apple tablet are becoming stronger. I have been hearing about Apple Tablet since the early 2009. So far, this is what we know about the device. First, it will be called iSlate or iTablet. The iSlate name was trademarked two years ago or earlier. It will have a 10 inch or 6 inch touchscreen that would allow readers to read papers and other documents, browse the net or watch movies. The price of the device will remain somewhere between $500-$700 or even lower than $500. Finally, the launch date; according to Financial Times’ report, Apple rented a large space in San Francisco for January. It is the same place where Steve Jobs showed Apple’s newly improved iPod. Boy Genius has been tipped by a reliable source that a 7 inch tablet will be released very soon. Business Insider said that Apple told its selected app developers to develop “full-screen versions of their application.”

One group of people is saying that it will be like an extended version of iPod Touch where you can download necessary apps from the Apple app store.

Another group of people is saying that the device would run on Mac OS X and if necessary, it could also run on Windows 7 which also supports multitouch system.

Now, the million dollar question is- Will it become successful? Currently, there are several tablet PCs in the market and almost all them are used for special purpose such as medical, education and so on. When Apple iPhone was launched no body could think that the device would be so much popular. Apple has been very successful in producing consumer centric devices. So, there is lots of doubt but there is also hope.
