Google Chrome OS expected to launch later this month

Chrome to try emulate Android popularity and success

Google Chrome OS coming this month?

Following the phenomenal success of its mobile operating system, Android, Google is said to be readying its Chrome OS for computer devices to launch later this month.

According to anonymous “component players” in Asia, the Google Chrome OS, which was first rumoured back in November 2009 will start shipping pre-installed on devices in the coming weeks despite the internet giant remaining tight-lipped about any such plans.

The latest rumours of a Chrome release date further bolster claims made by Acer earlier this summer when the tech manufacturer claimed it was planning on releasing Chrome OS based devices before the end of the year. Despite later retracting these statements, Acer’s blab could soon be realised.

Whilst these claims are far from confirmed by Google, it is also believed that the search engine creators will be launching a self-branded Chrome OS device alongside the eventual unveiling of the operating system.
