Rumor: Google Chrome OS tablet coming Black Friday

Concept of Google's Chrome OS tablet

We’ve heard of a Google tablet dating as far back as April, now, a new rumor has surfaced saying the device will be released on Black Friday (November 26th) and it won’t be running Android. I’m a bit surprised, as Android would be a huge jump into the tablet world considering the vast array of apps already in the Marketplace. I’m guessing Google is wanting to keep Android for smartphones, while making Chrome OS the system to run tablets.

Details are scarce, but the speculation points to an HTC made device, with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform with an eye popping 1280×720 display, 2GB Ram, 32GB SSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, LTE connectivity (looking at Verizon), a front facing camera, and perhaps a card reader and expansion slot. It’s really up in the air, but I would guess the screen size will be between 7 and 9-inches. The source came forward to Download Squad, where they notified them of the iPad competetor. Most of this makes sense, especially HTC being the maker since they did make the G1 (Google Phone). What doesn’t make a whole lot of sense is picking the busiest shopping day of the year, perhaps Google knows something we don’t know, it wouldn’t be the first time either
