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
- 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.
