The folks over at Download Squad are reporting that not only is the tablet going to be a reality, but that it’s going to launch on Black Friday through Verizon.
There has been speculation on if and when a tablet running Google’s Chrome OS would finally come to market. Lots of folks out there are also wondering why this isn’t a tablet running Android instead, but the truth is that it makes a lot of sense if Google really wants Chrome OS to get off to a good start. Putting it out through Verizon means that Google will probably sell more of them, as Verizon can probably subsidize most of the cost which should spark early sales and help increase adoption of their unique approach to the operating system.
As of now, if DS’s information holds true, then the tablet which is also being rumored to be manufactured by HTC, will go on sale November 26th or Black Friday as it would be better known this year.
Below are the possible specs for the Chrome OS tablet:
- Nvidia Tegra 2 platform
- 1280×720 multi-touch screen
- 2 GB of RAM
- minimum 32 GB SSD
- WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G
