Dell machines with Chrome innards... not exactly what you might think

Dell has confirmed that it is in talks with Google over a partnership that would see the computer manufacturer running the search giant’s operating system, Google Chrome on a number of its devices.

Although Dell was not amongst the list of companies released by Google as those looking to support its Chrome OS upon launch later in the year, one of its netbooks has previously emerged with a copy of the Google operating system installed merely as a ‘fun’ exercise.

Dell’s President for Greater China and South Asia, Amit Midha, said he expects Google’s operating systems such as the computer based Chrome and mobile based Android to be part of a “new form of computing” that will be innovative within the computing industry. He added: "We have to have a point of view on the industry and technology direction two years, three years down the road, so we continuously work with Google on this."

Not content with simply following the latest trends in software and operating systems providers, Midha said that Dell wants to be “one of the leaders.”
