Well the trees have revealed a secret about the Google Chrome tablet - Google's answer to the iPad. Rumors are rife that the Chrome OS tablet from Google will be released on the 26th of November - Black Friday, or the busiest shopping day in the United States. The device built by HTC, which also partnered with Google for the Nexus One, is supposed to be based on the Tegra 2 platform of Nvidia and will have a 1280 x 720 multi-touch display, 2 GB RAM, and a minimum of 32 GB SSD. It also features WiFi, Bluetooth, and LTE connectivity, a GPS, webcam and possibly a multi-card reader to increase data storage.

Google may also partner up with Verizon, which may offer the gadget at prices much cheaper than the iPad together with a Verizon contract. With these features, the latest contender to the tablet crown will definitely be something to look out for. The release date will likely put the Google Chrome tablet high up on the must-have list for Christmas.
