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. There is good possibility for this news to be true because Acer was the first company to launch a netbook running on Google Android.

    I look forward to using some of these new products that Google is churning out. Should give some of the big boys pause for thought.
