Rumor: Google’s Chrome OS netbook specs leaked

It seems that Google plans to re-define the stereotypical netbook. Spec wise, if sources are correct, the Google Netbook will completely change the way we look at netbooks—small, but weak, to cheap, but powerful. According to IBTimes and Netbook News, Google’s self-branded netbook will have a NVIDIA Tegra (probably 2nd gen) chipset and will come pre-installed Google apps, such as Maps, Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Search, and Voice.

Here’s the rumored hardware:

  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset
  • ARM CPU (better performance and uses less power than Atom)
  • 10.1 inch TFT HD ready, multitouch screen (1280×720)
  • 64GB SSD
  • 2GB RAM
  • Wi-Fi
  • 3G
  • Optional GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • Ethernet port
  • USB ports
  • Webcam
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Multi-card reader
  • 4-6 cell batter with 8-12 hours of battery life

Rumors have it that the netbook will be subsidized and sold directly by Google, possibly priced in the sub $300 range. It also seems that in the US, Google may bundle the netbook with carriers and their 3G plans. At that price, the Google Netbook will be hard to resist. It’s expected to be available in time for 2010’s holiday season. A lot could change between now and then, so expect many more updates as details keep rolling in.
