HTC rumored for showing Google Chrome OS based Tablet at CES 2010
After the famous Google Android OS based first mobile phone from HTC, the Google-HTC team is now rumored for working on Chrome OS Tablet, as Smart House reported. According to "sources", HTC has been working with Google since past 18 months and several working versions of the Tablet have been developed. Recently, this duo launched the Nexus One smartphone.
The Google-HTC collaboration has given has many Android based smartphones and now, the pair is rumored for working a Tablet. Basically, these rumors again duel with Apple's iSlate Tablet (yeah, right, even we're tired of writing about it) and compete with it. Alright, this is funny as the report talks about two unconfirmed products competing with each other. No evidence except "sources" information prove that either of the products really exist.
Smart House's report states, "HTC, which been working closely with Google for the past 18 months, has several working models of a touch tablet, including one model based on the new Google Chrome Operating System." Well, that's likely to be possible since Google is planning to release Chrome OS by the end of this year.
Furthermore, the report adds, "An Android-based device that is set to be shown privately to core HTC customers at the CES Show is set to incorporate new Qualcomm processors, touch technology and new software from Adobe." Don't be surprised if HTC launches yet another Shift version loaded with Android OS - well that's a probability.
If we consider that Google-HTC Tablet is actually in making, then Google has really huge content to offer in form of eBooks. Also, if the Tablet runs Adobe AIR natively, loads of AIR based apps could be developed like Twitter clients or even books, news paper or magazine readers. Unless there's an official word from either of the companies, we shall keep this Tablet - lighthearted.
