Google working on touchscreen Chromebook

Google-branded device


According to a China Times suburb, it appears that Google is working on a Google-branded Chromebook that will be a final piece of the puzzle in the Google device portfolio.

The device will be made by Compal and is set to ship by the end of 2012, most likely before the Christmas shopping fever. As you remember, both Acer and Samsung have recently released their versions of Chrome OS based Chromebooks. Acer went for Celeron 847 CPU with its US $199 C7, while Samsung decided to use its own ARM-based Exynos 5250 SoC with a tad higher US $249 price tag.

Unfortunately, the report did not say anything regarding the hardware side of the upcoming Google-branded Chromebook other than it will end up with a touchscreen. Of course, most of the Google devices are based on an ARM chip, so that might be the logical path for Google.
