HTC+Google Bringing Chrome OS Tablet To CES 2010?

Yesterday we reported that HTC was working on a new tablet PC that will be debuted at CES 2010. There are apparently multiple versions of the tablet, one of which will run Android while the other runs Chrome OS. Now we're hearing rumors (via Smarthouse) that Google is working closely with HTC to design this tablet as an 'iTablet killer'. With the Nexus One going up against the iPhone and this HTC tablet competing with the iSlate, 2010 could be the year Google and Apple really take the gloves off. Google has apparently been working closely with HTC for the last 18 months on this project. From the sound of it, this tablet isn't just an HTC gadget that happens to run a Google OS, it's a major Google project. Gizmodo, however, doesn't envision a Google V Apple showdown. It's more likely that Google's tablet will be a streamlined, browsing-centered machine, much like the CrunchPad was originally designed to be. Such a product would definitely be much more up Google's avenue, but that doesn't mean they still aren't tailoring this it to compete with the iSlate. Every (highly dubious) account we have of the Apple tablet describes it as a multimedia device. HD movie watching, browsing, gaming, and video conferencing. There's no reason Google's tablet couldn't do all of that. Start renting movies through YouTube, create a browser-based app store and let the developers fill it with games...Google's tablet could be a thin, simple device with virtually no HD space and still handle all of that. Fortunately we won't have very much time to agonize over the possibilities. CES 2010 is next week. While the hardware showing is limited only to HTC customers, it's safe to assume something juicy is going to leak out of that meeting. CES 2010 will start on the 7th of January 2010 and lasts until the 10th. Of course CES news is already pouring in. Read them in our CES 2010 section.
