In the last two days there has been an explosion of information about Google’s upcoming Chrome Operating System. This seems quite surreal as just a few weeks ago many bloggers on the internet were complaining about how starved of information we all were.
Here’s an early look at the CR-48 Chrome OS netbook (above). This video sums up Google’s keynote quite well. It’s short and sweet but over the next few days we will be bringing you even greater detail on what this device has to offer. As already mentioned in our previous article, this device will only be available for early adopter and beta testers. You may find out more here.
After a long struggle, Google has finally released the Chrome Web Store. It has taken months and a number of delays but it has finally happened. The store has been released to complement the outing of the Chrome OS beta. Even so Apps in the Web store won’t only work with Chrome OS but will also work with Google TV and the Chrome browser.
Today Google is eager to please! Not only did they announce a cool new device (CR-48 netbook) that early adopters can use to test out the Chrome OS Beta but they have moved to offer free 3g connection to all Chrome OS users in partnership with Verizon.
Today during the keynote event in California, Google’s VP Sundar Pichai announced that Chrome OS devices will begin retailing mid next year. He also announced that they are already partnering with companies such as Acer and Samsung who will be bringing a couple of devices to market.
Google seems to have begun what they hope will become a viral advertising campaign on You Tube. The Internet giant wants to know how you think that Chrome OS will change the way you use your computer and most of all, how easy it will make your daily life. Indeed the video is a bit cheesy, but it gets the point across; normal people, sharing why they are so excited for Chrome OS.
Today Google has revealed that Chrome OS will indeed be released as a Beta. As we expected Google has announced that the beta will only be usable on a generic, none branded device that they are calling the CR-48. You will not be able to download and install the Beta on your current device but will rather need to lodge an application with Google to get one of these devices shipped out to you (Google explains more):
Quick update: The Chrome OS Event (which you can read more about here) will be streamed live, today in just over an hour’s time. If you are interested in watching the event live, you can do so by going to Google’s official You Tube channel.
Today, Google is making a big announcement regarding Chrome OS, their first ever cloud operating system. Chrome OS aims to revolutionize the way we use our netbooks and it aims to shake up the ever more entrenched companies like Microsoft and Apple. We would like to invite you to follow the live coverage of this historic event, today (here at Chrome OS Site). Below are the start times of the event in 6 major time zones:
A report published by Engadget claims that they have a picture of the much rumoured Chrome OS Netbook (well at least pictures of it’s keyboard). The above picture was taken during a press conference by Inventec. For those of you who don’t know who Inventec are; they are an ODM that has been rumoured to be manufacturing over 75,000 Chrome OS powered netbooks for Google. These netbooks would be sold to early adopters and developers who will have the opportunity to play with the soon to be released Chrome OS Beta.
December 7th is the date ladies and gents; it seems like Google’s Chrome OS is finally making a debut! A few days ago we reported about rumours regarding a possible Beta release of Chrome OS by the end of the year (and maybe even the possible release of a device). Well, today Google has begun to send out invites for a special ‘Chrome’ event which will be held on Tuesday December the 7th.
