Well here’s an interesting turn of events. According to Download Squad, it has been confirmed that Google is rolling out an HTC-built Chrome OS tablet. Apparently it’s set to debut on November 26th and will be sold via Verizon.
Oh, in case you’re not aware: November 26th is Black Friday, this year. The single biggest shopping day in the US.
As for hardware, we’re seeing this:
- 1280×720 multitouch display
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB SSD storage
Is this the closest thing we’ve seen to real competition to the iPad? In our humble opinion, yes. Without a doubt. The question is, of course, will you buy it?
