Rumoured to be coming soon
satanic rumour mill has churned out a rather
interesting report that Acer and Lenovo are developing new netbooks, or
should we say smartbooks, based on Nvidia's Tegra chip.
According to Shanzai.com, a Chinese notebook news site, the report
stems from reliable sources, but we're still far from sure about it.
Perhaps the oddest thing about the report is that the new Tegra-books
will use Google's Chrome OS, not Android. Not long ago Google was
saying the first Chrome OS products would appear on the market in early
2010. However, Shanzai claims Tegra based Acers and Lenovos should
appear quite soon, in late September.
We're really not sure about this. We doubt anyone would be surprised if
it turned out the likes of Acer and Lenovo were developing Tegra-based
designs, but the timeline seems a bit unrealistic. Late 2009 or early
2010 sounds a bit more plausible.
