Pulkit Chandna

In a season of outages, when internet-based services seem to be having a tough time staying online , the last thing anyone wants to talk about is an upcoming cloud-based operating system. But that is exactly what we are about to do. MPC readers, let us ignore the bone-chilling horrors of the past week that are otherwise likely to linger with many of you for a long time, so that we can concentrate on reports of an upcoming Chrome OS netbook from Samsung called “Alex.” The existence of this netbook came to light through a Chromium bug report.

It is clear from the bug report that Alex sports a 1280 x 800 display, and features a 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, Qualcomm Gobi 2000 3G card,Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a Synaptics Touchpad.

Alex is not the only Chrome OS device to have been revealed in a recent Chromium bug report. We have also seen references to a couple of other first-generation Chrome OS devices, namely the Intel Atom-powered Acer ZGB (codename) and the touch-friendly, Tegra 2-toting Seaboard.
