Tegra 2 Google Chrome Tablet Launching Nov 26?

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 8 comments

Chrome OS tablet rumors are nothing new, however, a new report carries some interesting details about a Chrome OS tablet that's supposedly launching in November.

According to Download Squad, Google's old friend HTC is working on a Chrome OS tablet set for release on November 26. The device will be offered in conjunction with Verizon, which means data plans of some sort, but there's no word on whether or not this baby will be available off contract (à la the iPad) also. Download Squad says the device will be heavily subsidized, if not free, and speculates that it could feature Nvidia's Tegra 2; a 1280x720, multitouch display; 2GB of RAM; a minimum of 32GB SSD storage; WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity; a GPS; a webcam; and possibly expandable storage via a multi-card reader. 

If November 26 incites an underlying feeling of dread and the urge to crawl under your bed and eat nothing but turkey until the clocks tick over to November 27, that's because 11/26 the busiest shopping day of the year. You got it, folks, it's Black Friday.

    Chrome instead of Android?
    Apps library? Is it compatible with Android apps?

    Having Chrome OS instead of Android is a huge advantage. A mobile OS vs a low end notebook OS makes a world of difference, especially for things like text processing.

    I don't think Android apps will work natively on Chrome OS, but I presume some underlying code will be similar and as such porting shouldn't be too hard.

    Hopefully it will come out in Europe too. I would either like to have this or the ICD Gemini.

    Well if ChromeOS is based on Linux... then why not... then again Android is... so what's the difference? Anyway - bring it on... I want one!

    Actually..I am just worried...
    I want one, but what kinda apps/softwares are available at that time?
    If it can run android apps, then I will have plenty of them.

    If it's up to par and becomes available in the UK, I'll be interested in buying one.

    OK now! I wanna recap a few stuffs.
    Wetab will be out here in Germany somewhere in September. This one has WetabOS but Android apps are also compatible.
    Chrome tablett will be in November in USA. When will it be or will it even be available in Germany?
    ICD Gemini, has the best features for me but when will the release date be? Will it be available also in Germany?
    Samsung Galaxytab will also come soon.
    Lenovo U1, perhaps somewhere next year.Jojoo...hmmm...not so convincing...
    etc. etc.

    OK people...let the tablet war begin! Let those prices sinking! :D
