Leak rebuffs notions of Acer Chrome OS devices anytime soon

Acer has major event in late may but no Chrome OS

Talk of Acer launching Chrome OS devices at Computex isn't accurate, a countering claim said today. The company will reportedly have an event on May 25th, but neither this, Computex nor other nearby events would include Google's new desktop OS. What would appear at the event wasn't mentioned by the Engadget sources.

One possible candidate is the Ethos notebook line, which got an early preview in March but has yet to be officially announced on a broader level. Acer often has a yearly introduction of a new design for its portable line, such as when it introduced the Gemstone and Gemstone Blue ranges.

Chrome OS is officially due to ship only in the second half of the year and should be more developed than it was when Google first showed the platform in 2009, but may not necessarily be close enough that either Acer or Google can show it on an official level.
