Rumors are circling that Google is set to release a touchscreen version of its Chromebook at some point near the end of this year. We are hearing reports from the Wall Street Journal that Google is working with an unnamed hardware manufacturer to bring some touchscreen Chromebook goodness to market.

The WSJ is reporting that sources close to the matter say that as many as 100,000 Chromebook's were sold in the US during Q4 of 2012 alone, and that accounts for a significant improvement over previous sales figures.

 

Nothing is set in stone yet, but the final form for the new Chromebook Touch, could resemble the Chromebook Pixel which was leaked earlier this month. This means that the touchscreen Chromebook could have a 2560x1700 display built into an ultra slim frame, similar to that of the Macbook Air.
