Breaking News! Google is planning to hold a special Chrome OS event at its headquarters (Mountain View, CA) this Thursday, 19th.
After a long wait since July, this is company’s first talks over Chrome OS. The potential plan is to lay some technical background and excite the community with demos.
Google’s VP of Product Management: Sundar Pichai, and Matthew Papakipos, will be seen as the engineers on stage.
From the last week, we had been hearing about Chrome OS launch this week. This still may be the case at this event, but it looks for now that the more complete launch will in fact take place next year. And if they are holding this event now with a complete overview, you can probably expect beta launch to be sometime on Jan or Feb.
Google first announced Chrome OS in July, but gave very few details about it. It seemed the idea there was more to drop a nuclear bomb on Microsoft, which was just about to announce its online free version of Office. In the subsequent months, interest has remained high for Chrome OS, but about all we’ve seen is what the OS’s browser may look like.
