There seems to be a lot of speculation about the tech specifications of the to-be-launched Google Chrome based Netbook. According to a post on an UK based website, rumors are that the specs are out, and also that it is a “high performance machine” for a fraction of the price. Here is what the website claims the specs are
- NVIDIA Tegra platform with ARM CPU
- 10.1-inch TFT HD-ready multi-touch display
- 64GB solid state drive
- 2GB of RAM
- Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, Ethernet, USB ports, webcam, card reader
We have no clue whether what is being claimed is true or not, but from what the website claims, Google plans to sell the device at less than $300 per unit. The site also claims that outside the US, the product shall be directly distributed by Google while inside the United States, the company shall try to set the Netbook as a viable competitor to the Nokia Booklet 3G by tying up with one or more network operators.
How much of this is true? Nobody knows yet. But it will be interesting if this actually turns out to be true.
