Google Chrome OS event this Thursday: beta release to follow?
By Chris Davies on Wednesday, Nov 18th 2009

Last Friday the rumor machine said Google Chrome OS, the open-source OS for netbooks, would drop in seven days time. That’s looking all the more likely today, with Google apparently sending out invitations to a Chrome OS event to be held on Thursday. According to GigaOm, Google are describing the event as “an update on our progress with Google Chrome OS” together with discussing “launch plans for next year”; that’s leading to speculation that a beta release is in the offing.

On the bill for the event are Sundar Pichai, Google VP of Product Management together with Matthew Papakipos, engineering director for Google Chrome OS. The expectation is that Google will announce a test beta for either partial or full release, to gather feedback and bug reports prior to the official launch in 2010. Such a plan would give hardware developers time to create new drivers, a shortage of which has been pointed to as a potential stumbling block for the web-centric platform.

Google Chrome OS is targeted at netbooks and other low-power devices, and focuses on bringing webapps to a cut-down and simplistic desktop. Users would be expected to keep most of their content in cloud-based storage, while the differentiating line between local and remote applications would be blurred with HTML5 and other technologies.

Google to Demo Chrome OS This Week, Launch in 2010
by Mark Hachman

Google will demonstrate its Chrome OS in an event this Thursday, and deliver an overview on its launch plans for 2010, Google representatives said Tuesday.

Google invited PCMag.com to cover the launch on Thursday, which will be hosted by Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management, along with Matthew Papakipos, engineering director for Google Chrome OS.

"While this will be more of a technical announcement, we will be showing a few demos that will definitely be of interest to you as well as a complete overview and our launch plans for next year," a Google spokesperson said in an email.

Google will most likely be quizzed on the most popular questions surrounding the Chrome OS, as well as its hardware partners, which will include Acer, Hewlett-Packard and Adobe, among others. Google's partners were noncommittal when reached for comment earlier this year. Google will also have to answer questions about how the Chrome OS will interact with and complement Android, the mobile operating system whose popularity is growing rapidly.

If nothing else, however, Google seems to be keeping to the timetable set by chief executive Eric Schmidt, who promised "news" by the end of 2009. That news wasn't a leaked "Chrome OS" browser, however, which some have postulated might just be a thin framework for Web-based apps.
