There’s a rumor about upcoming Tegra-powered netbooks that would run on Google’s Chrome OS. The surprising part is that they would appear as early as this month. It is strange because the Google OS was not scheduled to be ready until 2010…
Also, NVIDIA has not been pushing Linux and Tegra as a duo recently, although when I did talk to Mike Rayfield before Computex, he did not rule out the idea of having an Android-powered Tegra device. It’s just that Nvidia seemed very focused on Windows CE, the OS behind the Zune HD. To shine, Tegra needs support for: HD video decode, Flash, 3D graphics. In the short term, only Flash would be plausible on Google’s OS. That said, Tegra can also be utilized only for its small power envelope. [via Shanzai]
