If Acer and Samsung thought that they were forever going to have the Chromebook market all to themselves, we’ve some seriously bad news for the two companies. A Japanese rival seems to be gearing up to invade what has essentially been their collective fiefdom till now. Hit the jump for more.
One of the pictures features a right-angle ruler being used to measure the Chromebook depth, which is around 21cm or 8.27-inches. Other pictures contained in the FCC filing reveal the presence of an 11.6-inch Samsung LCD, D-Max webcam, Huawei Gobi 3000 3G module, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI port, SD card reader and two USB 2.0 ports.
But perhaps the most interesting bit is the processor, which is simply identified as “T25” in a sticker on the Sony Chromebook’s bottom. Laptop Reviews suspects the T25 could actually be Nvidia’s Tegra 2 T25 ARM chip. If that indeed turns out to be the case, it will be the first ARM-based Chromebook on the market.
