iPad Competitor Featuring Google’s Chrome OS Coming on Black Friday? | PadGadget

According to a Download Squad report published earlier today, HTC is currently building a tablet featuring Google’s Chrome OS. Most analysts were expecting the first iPad-sized Google tablet to be powered by Android, so the decision to use Chrome OS instead is somewhat of a surprise.

While this news is only a rumor at this stage, the report gave some interesting tidbits about the device: the tablet will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2, and will feature a 720p multitouch display, 32GB of SSD, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a webcam, and a multi-card reader. Finally, the tablet will be 3G-enabled, and will be launched on Verizon’s network.

Chrome OS, an internet-based operating system announced about a year ago, is specifically designed for netbooks and mobile devices, and is built to leverage Google’s online services and apps.

The new tablet is currently scheduled to be available on Black Friday later this year, right after the launch of the Chrome App Store.
