HTC+Google Bringing Chrome OS Tablet To CES 2010?
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
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
