Can't wait for Chrome OS? Don't worry, you're in the same boat as every other open source nerd out there. While we still have several long months to wait before it becomes a reality, proof-of-concept devices running the new OS have already been spotted. Electronista reports that Freescale has just shown off their under-$200 7” tablet, this time running Chromium.

This tablet is a proof-of-concept for Freescale. They want to sell inexpensive, good-quality tablets that run on a variety of systems. The specs for this little tablet are; 512 MB of RAM, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, and 3G/RF4CE options. There will be 4 GB of on-board storage, plus a microSD slot.

These new Freescale tablets could hit as early as this summer. Many of the first models to launch will likely sport Android. It'll be interesting to see whether the mobile OS, or the browser-based OS proves better for the tablet form factor.
