Google and Intel have announced plans to hold a joint press event Tuesday evening on May 6, aimed at showcasing the two companies’ latest collaborative efforts surrounding Chrome OS. The two companies aren’t saying exactly what we can expect at the event, although a new device is expected to be announced.
There are several possibilities here: perhaps the two companies are planning to announce a cheaper, more powerful successor to the Chromebook Pixel, which is now around a year old. Alternately, Chrome OS has continually been adding more touch-centric features, so a Chrome OS tablet powered by Intel might be in the works, too.
Google and Intel have a very good working relationship, as Intel chips power most Chromebooks and all Chromeboxes on the market today. Additionally, Intel also recently announced plans to introduce a new Braswell to the Chrome OS lineup, as well.
We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on what comes of this.[OMG! Chrome!]
