Vendors will release smartbooks on Chrome this month

    According to DigiTimes, referring to its sources, the largest vendors will release smartbooks on Google Chrome OS this month, while Google also plans to launch a laptop on Chrome under its brand (according to a strategy similar to the Nexus One smartphone).

    Google’s Chrome laptop is expected to be manufactured by Inventec on the ARM platform. The volume of the first batch will not exceed 60-70 thousand units. No sales will be made through retail chains.

    The same sources noted that after Google announces its Chrome laptop, Acer and Hewlett-Packard will follow suit and launch their products in order to test market reaction, but not earlier than December. The products of both vendors will be manufactured by Quanta Computer.
