A year ago, about this time, Google had announced that their new Chrome Operating System will be out for public within a year. Looks like the time is almost up and the information is coming out of Taiwan that the first Chrome OS based notebook will be released soon, probably by the end of this month. According to few sources, Google has plans to launch its own-brand Chrome OS notebook, similar to the Nexus One smartphone strategy.

Google's Chrome notebook is expected to be manufactured by the Taiwan based company Inventec. According to Taiwan's news source DigiTimes, the notebook will feature an ARM-based platform and Inventec will have 60,000-70,000 units of the Google notebook will be manufactured for the initial shipment.

If you’re waiting for a name brand, PC makers like Acer and HP are expected to release their Chrome OS
netbooks in December. The Google Chrome notebook will not be available at normal retailers; instead Google is expected to sell the notebook exclusively online, just as they did with the Nexus One.

Google OS notebooks will be using the advanced technology rather than what is used today, Google OS is an open source project and it is designed exclusively for web applications, and the OS would not be available to download as stand-alone software. The operating system will be integrated and shipped within the device, which will not give a chance for counterfeiting. And the user interface is said to be very simple and it is mainly targeted on the users who spend most of their time on internet.
