Google Announces Chrome OS Partners

The list includes computer manufacturers like HP and Asus, as well as the likes of Adobe and Freescale. Check out the list of companies Google has published below:

  • Acer
  • Adobe
  • ASUS
  • Freescale
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • Lenovo
  • Qualcomm
  • Texas Instruments
  • Toshiba.

Google’s Sundar Pichai wrote in the company’s blog that the list of companies published is not the full list of Chrome OS partners, so we’ll likely see more names added as time goes on. We’ll try to keep this list as up to date as possible and add new companies as they’re announced.

Because the Chrome OS is going to initially be targeted at netbooks (and because nearly every computer company under the sun has a netbook in its lineup), we’re betting the list of partners is going to get pretty lengthy as we near the 2H 2010 period that Google has ear-marked for the Chrome OS’s release.

    freak77powerSince it's Linux based it is going to fail. It will be out there just like Google Desktop Search bar but nobody is going to use it.Problems with Linux: No Gaming, Limited Hardware Support. It simply doesn't work for average Joe which represents 98% of the PC market.Google will get user friendly UI on top of it, i am sure of it. Since it will run web based google apps, i have new for Google. It's not gonna work in dial up areas.

    Nobody is using a netbook for gaming. This OS isn't intended for high end desk tops. It's for the already feature-limited netbooks.

    I'm not sure comparing an OS to a search bar is quite valid.

    Personally I think Google will do a good job with what this is intended to do.

    Odd thing that Dell is not in that list. Are they getting a special deal with Microsoft to implement a netbook- optimized version of 7 on their minis?
