First Chrome OS Desktop PC To Ship In July

According to various reports, hardware maker Xi3 will be releasing the very first desktop PC running Google’s Chrome operating system on the 4th of July.

Xi3’s ChromiumPC modular computer will feature a tiny, cube like design with different color options and are powered by the dual or single core 64-bit, x86 processors.

Even though the ChromiumPC is shipped with Google’s Chrome OS pre-installed, users are free to use an operating system of their choice, such as Windows or Linux.

Jason A. Sullivan, the president and CEO of Xi3 Corp said:

The Xi3 computer architecture is designed to support any x86-based operating system, including Windows, Linux, Unix and other open source-based operating systems. If someone chooses to switch their ChromiumPC to run a different operating system, it’s as easy as swapping out one of the three boards inside the computer.

    Of course it won’t be proper IE9, it will be some mobile version.
    This is a common Microsoft trick, they say one thing, and by the time everyone finds out it’s not true, everyone has forgotten about Microsoft’s original promise.

    A bit like the “Xbox is 3D ready” statements than Microsoft made last year…   It seems they are about to launch a proper (ie. PS3 spec) 3D Xbox this year, and people are too scared of Microsoft to point out their previous lies…
