Leaked video shows potential Google Chromebook 'Pixel'

Promotional video for touchscreen notebook possibly a hoax

Google may be creating a Chromebook of its own, if a promotional video for the device is confirmed as real. The Chromebook Pixel would in theory have a 2560x1700 resolution display with multitouch, running on Chrome OS, and is claimed by the tagline "Designed by Google. Down to the last pixel."

The video first appeared in a Google+ post by Francois Beaufort, a developer that has previously leaked details about notifications and the possibility of Google Now in the Chrome browser. The video was seen to be created by an agency called Slinky.me, the CEO of which claimed that hackers had attacked their servers and took information relating to company projects, including the Pixel. The video itself has since reappeared online.

If the video is for a product that is in development and not a publicity stunt or hoax by the agency or the search giant, it would see Google attempting to extend it's device ecosystem from phones and tablets. Google has been previously rumored to be working on it's own notebook, and such a move would pit it against a number of notebook manufacturers supporting Chrome OS, including those by Acer and Samsung.
