Report: Google to Design Chrome OS Netbook

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."

    Now THIS I think google would be good at! Noone does seamless web applications like google--if it used all google cloud components it would beat out any other netbook...

    One step closer to having a single-spec Google terminal for all of their cloud stuff.

    Look like Google wants a slice of that netbook pie.
