Just couple of days back Google launched a new android mobile OS platform Gingerbread 2.3 along with a new mobile device Nexus S and now comes the Google Chrome OS along with the Cr-48 Netbook. Basically the Chrome OS is the World’s first cloud based operating system. Google has optimized this new Operating system for its Cr 48 laptop. This laptop is currently not for sale, instead Google has decided to give these notebooks to the beta testers through the Chrome OS pilot program. The sad part of this program is that this program is currently available only in US.
If we look at the list of features of this Laptop then it’s a 12.1 inched screen with a click pad and full sized key board, surprisingly this keyboard doesn’t have Caps lock and function keys. This laptop also powers with a built in dual band Wi Fi, 3G and also comes equipped with a web cam. This Laptop promises to live for 8 hours of active use and 8 days of stand by capacity. The ports in the Laptop can equip VGA connections, USB mice and keyboards, headsets, and microphones. This Laptop comes with an atom processor and if you are thinking to dual boot this laptop then sorry to say that you can’t dual boot. This Laptop also comes with a flash storage capability and also adopts the new cloud printing service which is used to print the documents. Surprisingly the Laptops which will be given as a beta testers won’t be Labeled, means there will be no Logo on this Laptop.
The best part of Google’s Chrome is the Chrome Sync which will make it easy for new Chrome OS devices to be set up that is from sign-in to start-up all it will take is less than a minute for an out-of-the-box device. The Chrome OS netbooks will boot and wake instantly, making the way for a quick and seamless web experience.
If we go by the words of Google then the Chrome OS laptop will be unveiled commercially by mid of 2011 which will be in collaboration with Samsung and Acer.
