Chrome OS tablet rumored to go on sale with Verizon in November

It looks like Google might be pulling an old switcheroo. Rumor has it that the Mountain View-based company is planning to release a Chrome OS-based tablet (not an Android one just yet) this November.

It gets better. According to a source over at Download Squad, the HTC-made tablet will launch with Verizon Wireless on November 26. Before you even look at your calendars, just know that this is Black Friday. Talk about making a statement on the biggest shopping day of the year.

The blog is predicted a lower price tag seen on any of the iPad variants (at least with the signing of a likely two-year contract), with specs including:

  • Multi-touch display (1,280 x 720 resolution)
  • Nvidia Tegra 2 platform
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 32GB SSD
  • 3G
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Webcam
  • Memory card reader

There's no reason that Google can't release tablets on both Chrome OS and Android, so this could very well pan out to be true.
