Samsung working on Chrome netbook

Samsung Chrome netbook may use Snapdragon CPU

| Internet Browsers News | Posted: Feb 17, 2010 5:33 pm

Netbooks are often purchased because of the low price of most machines in the category. One of the most expensive things on a netbook can be the operating system if Windows is used. Many manufactures look to reduce costs by going with an open source OS like Linux.

Samsung is reportedly working on a netbook that looks much like the Samsung N210 pictured above but runs the Google Chrome OS. The Chrome Os is free and open source. Samsung offers little detail on the machine at this point.

 

What we do know is that it will have 3G, WiFi, and a battery promising 12 hours of run time. Memory is expected to be 2GB with at least 64GB of storage. The CPU in the machine is a question; some expect the Snapdragon from Qualcomm running 1.5Mhz.
