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
  • WiFi/Bluetooth/3G
  • GPS
  • Webcam

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?
