Computex 2010 is one of the biggest consumer electronics show held in Taipei, Taiwan. (You can register here is you want to go.) I want to go and the airfare is pretty cheap at about $1000 round-trip, non-stop from SFO to Taipei but I don’t know if it’s really worth it.
Anyways, at Computex this year, starting June 1st, Acer, the company that makes a bunch of great laptops and desktops (I am actually writing this blog post on a cheap Acer desktop.), is launching the world’s first Chrome OS device.
This will bring up a lot of questions such as, “will this device compete against the iPad?” or “will this device be a netbook?”
My prediction is that this new Chrome OS might be a multi-touch device as I believe Google might be launching both Android-powered and Chrome-powered multi-touch tablet devices to the market. Chrome OS could be geared for business-oriented users while Android OS is for the general public and hackers.
Anyways, we will keep you updated as I am sure some blogger will be taking some great hands-on video reviews of the new Chrome device.
