    Google Announces CR-48 Chrome OS Netbook


    As we mentioned earlier, Google finally took the plunge and announced the first developer hardware available for Chrome OS developers and Chrome OS testers (pilot program) alike.

    What do we know about the Netbook? Well, we know the hardware and we know that Google is specifically making sure the Netbook has no branding on it whatsoever. It's pretty generic and will have versions made by both Acer and Samsung.

    The Specs are as follows:

    • 12.1" Display
    • SSD Hard Drive
    • Full Size Keyboard
    • Intel Atom Processor
    • World Mode 3G (Verizon)
    • 8+ Hour Battery (Active Usage)
    • 8+ Day Standby Time
    • Webcam


    The specs are nothing to write home about but this is a test/reference platform... and, best of all, you have a chance to get one for FREE from Google. All you need to do is sign up here.

    Also, we'd like to take this opportunity to announce that we've created a forum dedicated entirely to Google's Chrome OS. We think this has the potential to be a very popular and disruptive OS and it deserves it's own home. Enter the Chrome OS Forum. We would appreciate you checking it out and registering an account and participating in the discussion! To do so, visit Chrome OS Forum

    Yeah, I just saw this and have signed up. I seriously doubt I'll get selected, but it never hurts I guess. Stranger things have happened.

    They are making 60,000 -- that's a lot to give away

    Not when you consider how many probably signed up. Still have my fingers crossed for one.

    Well, UPS just delivered one to my door tonight. It seems pretty nice. Will definitely make a nice browsing device. Literally though, it is a Chrome OS. It's an operating system running inside of the browser.

    Because most of the companies are based in the US and I imagine liability/legal requirements make it easier for them to do things like this in the US only.
