It has been six months since Google gave us a teaser of what they call Chrome, a lightweight browser supported operating system. Acer jumped on the Chrome OS bandwagon and said they were willing to support the new OS once it reached prime time. What everyone expected was going to be a netbook device using the Google Chrome OS that promised fast boot time, instant Internet access and support for cloud computing. But now VentureBeat has a unnamed source that is saying that Acer is ready to unveil an unknown device supporting Chrome.
Here is what VentureBeat says in a recent article:
We’ve learned from multiple sources that the Taiwanese computer manufacturer Acer will launch Chrome OS devices at the Computex Taipei show, which will be held from June 1 to June 5. We don’t yet know what devices Acer will be launching. Chrome OS is designed for netbooks, but Google has also mentioned the possibility of bringing it to other device types like smartbooks and tablets running ARM processors.
It would seem that if this rumor proves to be true, that Acer will be the first to market a new device that supports the Google OS. Now if we just knew what this device would be?
Are you excited? Let us know.
