Chrome OS Netbooks for Sale by Christmas?

If DigiTimes is to be believed, this will be the month that netbooks powered by Google‘s Chrome OS will begin shipping worldwide, to be followed by a second round next month.

Per DigiTimes, Google’s manufacturing partner Inventec will prepare an initial run of 60,000 to 70,000 Google-branded Chrome netbooks, which “will feature an ARM-based platform and will not be selling through retail channels”; thereafter, Acer and Hewlett-Packard will “test the water” with their own Chrome OS-powered offerings, presumably geared towards a mass audience.

As BGR points out, DigiTimes has “an extremely mixed record” with its reports — this one is attributed only to “sources” — but when DigiTimes is right, it’s often on the cutting edge; make of that fact pattern what you will.
