Several reports are now claiming that Sony is in the process of releasing their own Chromebook model.
More specifically, the new Chromebook is rumored to be part of the Sony VAIO VCC111 Series. Included in the Sony Chromebook are headphone and microphone jacks, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI connection, SD card reader, 11.6-inch screen (possibly made by Samsung), 2 GB of RAM, and an ARM-based processor, such as the NVIDIA Tegra 250 T25.
All the rumors are based on leaked FCC testing documents and perhaps the most compelling as reported by Geeky-Gadgets.com is: “The lack of the Windows key and the ‘start Chrome OS’ on page 2 of the manual leads to a viable confirmation that this model will indeed run on Chrome OS.”
When will the Sony Chromebook be released? Well, Google’s I/O event is scheduled for June 27-29. That seems like the perfect time, right?
