Apparently, Google is planning to launch a Chrome OS tablet on Verizon’s network on November 26 which is Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year.
Download Squad says that HTC is currently building the tablet for Google and Verizon and it will be priced much lower than the iPad. It will be available with Verizon on contract.
It will have some really good hardware under the boot. It will have Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform powering it and will likely sport a 10.1 inch multitouch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It will have 2 GB RAM and a 32 GB internal SSD. It will offer a webcam and GPS and will also offer Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity.
The rumor actually makes sense as Black Friday would probably be the best day to launch a new product. The specs seem realistic and fit in line with all the other tablet releases. Now we know why Google was so eager to comply with Verizon on the Net Neutrality proposal.
While Android based tablets will compete with the iPad, Chrome OS will probably compete with Windows 7 tablets.
