An NVIDIA executive on Thursday confirmed the company is working with Google to introduce a netbook containing Chrome OS and NVIDIAâ€™s Tegra mobile device platform. ( NVIDIA Tegra is a system-on-a-chip with an ARM processor developed by NVIDIA for mobile devices such as smartphones, PDAs and MIDs. )
This news confirms two things, firstly, Google is doing some serious homework for Chrome OS, and devices that will run Chrome OS. Secondly, Google is confident that the high level of sales in the Netbooks market is going to continue for a long time. We can expect some more announcements like this in the future, from different hardware companies, that’s what I am guessing from this.
Is this something to be excited about it ? Not really, but as Chrome admirers, we can definitely be happy with these new developments. Why I am not excited is because of what I learned from the market’s response to Android. I was expecting some really good android devices from many handset makers, but it turns out that HTC is the only company doing serious work on Android, and Motorolla just entered the Android OS arena. Well, to be honest, I expected something bigger, and faster.
