It looks like the rumors that were leaked earlier regarding a Google branded Chrome OS netbook were indeed true. Google is planning to release atleast two sub $300 netbooks that will be powered by Chrome OS. These machines will sport 10.1 inches screen and will be powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform. They’ll also feature 64 GB SSD, 2GB RAM, webcam, USB ports, GPS, WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity to go with it. Multitouch screens with GPS are also planned for high end models.
Its only been a few hours since Google spilled the beans on their upcoming Chrome OS, and now we already have a fully working VMware image of Chrome OS ready for download. All you need is a system running Windows, Linux or OS X with VMware installed and you are good to go. For those of you who don't know, Google in an event yesterday, demonstrated the lightweight and open source operating system called Chrome OS for the first time.
