Google Announces Some Chrome OS Partners
An ASUS Eee PC running Google’s Chrome OS? A Snapdragon smartbook that boots quickly in to Google’s operating system? Come the second half of 2010 these could very well be the case. After dropping a bomb on the technology industry early Wednesday morning, Google posted a few more details about its future Chrome OS, including its partners. Acer, ASUS, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, and Toshiba are on the list of notebook manufacturers the Internet company is working with. Missing from the laptop manufacter list is Dell and MSI which have both been no stranger to the netbook space for the last year. Also, where art thou newcomer Sony? Google is also working with Freescale, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments all which make ARM processors for the emerging class of smartbooks. Nvidia Tegra, we know about your love for Windows CE and even for Android, you gonna join up too? We anticipate there will be more parnter annoucements in the next couple of months but looks like Google is off to a great start to deploying its Chrome OS, and maybe, just maybe Intel and Microsoft will thank them.
