Google plans to re-define the netbook, and if sources are correct, the Google Netbook will completely change the way we look at stereotypical netbooks “small, weak, cheap, but powerful”. Google’s self-branded Chrome Os netbook will have a NVIDIA Tegra (probably 2nd gen) chipset and will come pre-installed Google apps, such as Maps, Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Search, and Voice. And will possibly be priced in the sub $300 range. It also seems that in the US, Google may bundle the netbook with carriers and their 3G plans. Google has tapped several hardware manufacturers about making its netbook as per its specifications and design and has sent out RFPs (request for proposal), tech bloggers have already begun speculating about the netbook’s specs. Here’re the rumored specs: NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, ARM CPU (better performance and uses less power than Atom), 10.1 inch TFT HD ready, multitouch screen (1280×720), 64GB SSD, 2GB RAM, Wi-Fi, 3G, Optional GPS, Bluetooth, Ethernet port, USB ports, Webcam, 3.5mm audio jack, Multi-card reader, 4-6 cell batter with 8-12 hours of battery life.
