Google Interesting little digging from TechCrunch's MG Siegler: as it turns out, Google's Chrome OS is nearing completion. The company is currently testing a release candidate build, and has reiterated that devices running Chrome OS will arrive later this year.

Good question. I am very sceptic, too. Also, Android's success is quite a problem for Chrome OS, IMHO. The OEMs are just getting familiar with Android right now, the flood of upcomming devices is right around the corner and consumers seem to like Android quite a bit with it's more traditional general purpose approach.

If Chrome OS can boot faster than Android, it'll have a right to exist. My HTC Desire needs more than 45 seconds to boot! with a 1 Ghz processor! That should be unacceptable for all engineers involved.
