    Google Announces CR-48 Chrome OS Netbook


    As we mentioned earlier, Google finally took the plunge and announced the first developer hardware available for Chrome OS developers and Chrome OS testers (pilot program) alike.

    What do we know about the Netbook? Well, we know the hardware and we know that Google is specifically making sure the Netbook has no branding on it whatsoever. It's pretty generic and will have versions made by both Acer and Samsung.

    The Specs are as follows:

    • 12.1" Display
    • SSD Hard Drive
    • Full Size Keyboard
    • Intel Atom Processor
    • World Mode 3G (Verizon)
    • 8+ Hour Battery (Active Usage)
    • 8+ Day Standby Time
    • Webcam


    The specs are nothing to write home about but this is a test/reference platform... and, best of all, you have a chance to get one for FREE from Google. All you need to do is sign up here.

    Also, we'd like to take this opportunity to announce that we've created a forum dedicated entirely to Google's Chrome OS. We think this has the potential to be a very popular and disruptive OS and it deserves it's own home. Enter the Chrome OS Forum. We would appreciate you checking it out and registering an account and participating in the discussion! To do so, visit Chrome OS Forum

    I signed up on another forum of mine. I'd imagine they won't be "giving" away too many of these.

    I applied as well. Although I LOVE black (my favorite color), im worried about overheating issues. Anyone think it might overheat? Black does attract the most heat.
    DROID X: Liberty 0.8 |Kernel: Not Stock| Baseband: |
    HTC EVO: UnrEVOked | Baseband: 1.39.00.04.26 | Kernel: 2.2 rooted | (owned by my grandfather who passed recently )

    Droid > iPhone > Blackberry. 'nuff said.

    I don't think you'll have too many issues with black and over heating unless you're in direct sunlight.. At least I would think... But I applied, that'd be a cool Christmas present from Google haha. I used to have the OS on my laptop (Parallels) but it was in the early stages when I had it. (over a year ago).
    Moto Droid 1 : Project Elite v4.2
    HTC Thunderbolt : Sold
    Samsung Droid Charge : Stock
    Moto Xoom Wifi : CM10.1
    Samsung Galaxy Nexus : CM10.2
