Google Chrome supported netbooks slated for release by the month end

There will be a set of new netbooks slated to be launched in the market by the end of this month that are set to include the Chrome operating system by Google. The OS is an open source, cloud based piece of software. Once Google goes ahead with this step, biggies like Acer and Hewlett Packard are expected to follow suit, and launch chrome supported netbooks of their own soon. Industry insiders say that these Companies are targeting to roll out their netbooks by this December. Asus however is not planning to take a plunge anytime soon and may venture in, once this move is tried and tested by Google, HP, Acer and the likes.

Among the soon to be rolled out notebooks by Google, there should be a device which will be pretty identical to the Nexus One Smartphone in terms of production strategy. The company incharge of producing the Google netbook built around an ARM-based platform will be Inventec with the initial figure of the batch of shipments being around a good 60,000 to 70,000 units.
