Google rumoured to be developing 12.85-inch touch-enabled Chromebook

Google seems to be getting very aggressive with its Chromebooks. If rumours are to be believed, it is reportedly working on Chrome OS-powered 12.85-inch touch notebook slated to come out in the first quarter of 2013, said a report in DigiTimes.

The interesting part is, unlike the two Chromebook launches we saw this year - from Acer and Samsung - the 12.85-inch Chromebook will be made by Google itself.

According to a report in DigiTimes, Taiwanese manufacturers Compal Electronics and Wintek have been roped in to handle the OEM and touch-panel production. The report goes on to say that Compal plans to start shipment by the end of the year. So is Google looking at the unveiling this touch-enabled notebook at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in Las Vegas? We don’t know, but it looks quite likely.

Apart from the fact that the notebook will be touch enabled, no details on the hardware were mentioned. The Acer Chromebook runs on an Intel processor and sells for $199, whereas the Samsung Chromebook runs on its own Exynos 5 ARM-based processor and sells for $249. These Chromebooks do not sport a touch features but are ideal low-cost notebooks aimed at schools and business.
