Google launches Chrome's OS operating system

Bookmark and Share
Chrome OS will be launched as a pilot program that users can register online and, finally, offer pre-installed on a wide range of computers made by major manufacturers such as Acer and Samsung.

Although initial plans for a test program that is only available in small scale, the timing of new Google operating system can be offered as a standard option when consumers buy a laptop or PC.

Writing on the Google Blog, Sundar Pichai and Linus Upson wrote that "The test booklets are only to test the software that are black, have no marks or logos, or stickers, or anything. They have screens of 12 inch, full-size keyboard and touch controls, integrated 3G Verizon, eight hours of battery life and eight days of standby time. Chrome notebooks are designed to reach the web instantly. "

The news consistent with Google CEO Eric Schmidt's assertion last month that Chrome OS machines were months from launch.

Chrome OS is the base platform for the Chrome Web browser, which has more than 120 million users around the world.

While traditional PC and Mac machines typically take minutes to boot up, Chrome OS machines boot in seconds, as Sundar Pichai, vice-president of product management, demonstrated on stage Dec. 7. Pichai said Chrome OS notebooks will appear from those computer makers in mid-2011, or six to eight months late than originally intended. Pichai said at the Chrome OS introduction event in November 2009 that polished machines would be ready for the 2010 holidays.
