Engadget reports there are whispers that Google and Verizon have teamed up to introduce on Chrome OS tablet on Black Friday (November 26, 2010). The device is reportedly based on NVIDIA's Tegra 2 SoC and uses a 1280 x 720 pixel multitouch screen. The plan is to offer the device for very little money or even free, but you'll have to tie yourself to a Verizon contract to get it.
Our friends at Download Squad are told by a reliable tipster that HTC is building a Tegra 2-based Chrome OS tablet for Google with a 1280 x 720 multitouch display, 2GB of RAM, at least 32GB of storage with the possibility of expansion, GPS, a webcam, and the usual wireless connectivity, including a 3G radio. Launch is pegged for Black Friday on November 26, and apparently the plan is to offer the device for extremely cheap or free on subsidy, which makes sense -- it is just a browser, after all, and "free" sounds mighty nice compared to the iPad's $499 entry point.
