At the moment, Google's Chromebooks are built by two manufacturers - Acer and Samsung. This is rumored to change, with Google looking to offer up their own-brand of Chromebook in early 2013. A report coming from the China Times has said that Google have talked to Taiwanese manufacturers Compal Electronics and Wintek to look after the hardware.

Better yet - the Google-branded device would be a 12.85-inch kit with touch-based input - yes, touch-based input! I don't think many expected the next Chromebook to have touch-based capabilities, but if Google push this right and price it competitively, they could really take the market on with a new Chromebook.

If Google could price it super competitively, like they have with their Nexus 4, 7 and 10 devices, the new touch-based Chromebook could finally become a winner for Google.
