Google Chrome OS gets new lineup of Haswell-powered devices

The Intel Developers Forum was filled not just with revelations of the manufacturer's upcoming chips but also with announcements of new devices, including a series of notebooks and a PC box running Google's Chrome OS and powered by Intel's latest fourth generation "Haswell" Core processors. This time, ASUS and Toshiba are joining the fray of companies touting Chrome OS devices which now totals six manufacturers.

Google Chromebook Pixel hands-on and first impressions

Google blasted onto the high end laptop scene last week with their all-new Chromebook Pixel. We had a pretty good idea it was coming based on a few leaks, but they shocked everyone with a quick announcement last week. Not to mention the price also being a shocker - to say the least.

Waiting in Line at Google I/O for the First Keynote [UPDATE: We're in!]

Today at 11AM Central time is the first Google keynote speech, and we're currently waiting in line for the bigtime door opening. There's about ten billion people standing in line here, but I assure you, we'll have the big news first!

Stay tuned and get your fists ready for some heavy pumping and your eyeballs ready for some heavy reading of some bomb dropping!

Generosity Doth Not Go Unappreciated

You may have noticed that over the past few days, we've been sort of XOOM happy here on Android Community. We've posted everything from a [brand new unboxing and hands-on post] to a [smooth guide] on some of the new amazing games you'll be able to run with your super powerful Tegra 2 processor (inside the tablet, of course.) This is because we've got a Motorola XOOM Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet sitting here right in front of us. The flood will continue here, but you'll soon be seeing the same thing happening around the web. Why? Because this year's Game Developers Conference has been gifted with not only Nexus S phones, not only Google Chrome OS-powered CR-48 laptops, but brand new XOOM tablets as well!

Android ported to CR-48 Chrome Notebook

Well Hexxeh has done it again. After building Flow out of Chrome OS, he has successfully ported Android to the CR-48 notebook given out by Google.

Android Community Google Cr-48 Giveaway

Notebooks running Google Chrome OS aren't expected to hit the market until mid-2011, so until now the only way to get your hands on a Google laptop is to sign up to the search giant's pilot program and hope you get picked to try out one of the 12.1-inch ultraportables. Now, though, there's another way: Google has given us five Cr-48 notebooks to give away, two for Android Community members and three over at our sibling site SlashGear.
