Forget the Google phone, how about a Google-branded netbook? That's the latest rumor following a report from TechCrunch that says the company could be building a netbook based on its Chrome OS.
TechCrunch cites a Q&A during which Google said it was working with a whole bunch of manufacturers who were interested in the Chrome OS. Among them are Acer, Lenovo, HP and Qualcomm.
A direct quote for those interested:
"The Google Chrome OS team is currently working with a number of technology companies to design and build devices that deliver an extraordinary end user experience. Among others, these companies include Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba."
TC then cites multiple sources who claim the search giant has been talking to at least one hardware manufacturer about building a netbook for Google directly. Arrington writes, "As in Google gave the company a request for proposal with quite detailed technical specifications and has begun discussions on building it."
