Chrome OS netbooks could ship this month
Back in July, Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced that the first netbooks running Google's Chrome operating system should appear by the end of the year. However, we weren't expecting them in October, and if Shanzai.com's sources are right, the first Chrome netbooks should launch within weeks.
Chinese netbook makers are reportedly developing affordable, sub-$200 netbooks powered by MIPS-based Loongson CPUs. Of course, you shouldn't expect these devices to ship worldwide, and they'll probably only be available in select Asian markets. In spite of that, this is rather big news, as it seems Google's is making headway on the new OS and it should appear in other designs quite soon.
