PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't trust the site that brought the rumour, but hey, we don't have much else to report on so bear with me. DownloadSquad is reporting that they've heard from a reliable source that Verizon and Google are going to unveil a Chrome OS tablet in November. So basically, Chrome OS is going to compete with Android on tablets. Excellent idea. Oh and also, Engadget has compiled Verizon's roadmap for the rest of the year, and it's Android, Android, Android, Andrdoid. Update: Surprising - it's nonsense.

Google and Verizon. Will this country never manage to decouple hardware from the carriers and their brutal contracts?

Now a whole new class of tablet hardware is going to be Verizon branded and bundled.

I bought an unlocked Nexus One which I happily use with my carrier of choice (no contract) and LOVE it! 3G performance is well above the average for the competing networks of Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile (here in the Southeastern US.) I received the update from 2.1 to 2.2 the week 2.2 was released. My point is that I don't think Google is the problem with its OS and mobile platforms, rather, it's the carriers.

Android is currently available on T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon, all with very good choices. So what's the problem? It's not like the AT&T/Apple problem.
