What’s next for Google? A DVD player? An HDTv? A robot?
Well, with its recent forays into other markets, it’s not that hard to imagine what it’ll think up next. For now however, let us content ourselves with the current “addition” (well at least that‘s what rumors say) to its growing list of products under its belt: the Google netbook.
According to a report by England’s IBTimes, specs for the rumored netbook that Google is developing have been leaked.
The netbook, will of course, run on Google’s Chrome and will come with pre-installed Google applications like Maps, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google voice search. It will reportedly have an ARM processor (better than an Intel Atom), an Nvidia Tegra 2 graphics chip set, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of memory and an 10.1-inch, high-def multitouch display.
Google’s netbook is said to have 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port and Bluetooth capability. It sports an integrated Webcam, a multi-in-one card reader, USB ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. According to the leaked specs, users will have the choice of four-cell battery (8hours) or a six-cell battery (12hours).
IBTimes reports that the netbook from the search giant will be under $300 and be sold by Google directly to customers. In the US however, the netbooks will come bundled with a 3G plan from an undetermined mobile carrier. 😉
